    I gettin' my fink on!

    Hey, just got my Rat Fink. Absolutely amazing bicycle! Rode it more than 40 km second day. Excellent drunken cruiser ride. I would highly recommend to purchase this bike for the quality of finish, paint/flames, and the RIDE!
    The only drawback is that the bars are a little high. I would take those bars down about an inch if it were me. Other than that, fill your bag full of brews, tuck a little mother nature behind your ear and just cruise baby!
    yep.

    Nice...
    I love the Rat Fink !!
    Im getting a contact just reading your description of
    rolling out on it
    How is it on hills ?
    The bars are easy to fix if you need to....
    I think Electra even makes some slightly lower ones, too.

    Is this the green one? A friend of mine up the road has the same one with green tireflys and a trailer with a little sound system, it's pretty cool.

    Never mind, my bud has the fink and his lady has got the pink fink. He also has the Rock-a-billy-boogie with a side car for his bull-dog. Pretty swank.

    I have really strong legs, so getting up moderately steep hills is no prob. However I was walking it up a couple really steep ones. Overall though the riding position is wonderful, you can really clip along with the crowd on a flat stretch. There is a group of us here we can sometimes get more than 20. Watching a pile of choppers/cruisers flying down the street is awe-inspiring. I obviously have a headlight/taillight combo but one question I ask is do you guys ride helmet or helmet-less? I have a pretty slick bucket that I sometimes wear(at night) just more for safety.

    Pics on the way
    yep.

    Never wear a helmet on my alt bikes, or even at time on my BMX.

    Roadie and MTB is almost always.

    I alternate....
    On my morning commute, where I live, I am the only person on the road.
    Im rolling along at 5-15mph at the most and I am in a totally non-threatening environment where only an angry Rooster might cause me danger. But, if Im dicing it up with angry cars in the 'city' here or on my fast bike I will. Im not worried about rider error, Im worried about angry / inattentive motorist assault. If you ride in a hostile environment, I definately would wear one. I think you should do what you think you need to do and not worry about what other people think. Also....'alt' shouldnt stop at the bike ! You can do some really cool stuff to a helmet to have it be a statement 'o kool, too !

    I concur, the bars on the Rat Fink are a bit high. I bought the Ghostrider merely because the bars are lower. The frame length appears to be identical, though the headtube may be slightly longer on my frame.
