I am curious, what's the longest ride you have done on a Tkit?
25km commute along a highway. I used the train for the other 25kms of the 50km commute to work and got a ride back into town with my Tikit in the trunk of a co-worker's car.
22 mile (35km) commute in very tough traffic and hills. Many, many 18 mile trips along the river (in DC, Alexandria to Georgetown and back). Nothing really long yet, but no real issues as to why not.

20-some-odd miles (10+ miles down, 10+ miles back) along the Manhattan west-side greenway from dykeman st, down to battery park, some tooling around, and then back home

My longest has been about 45 miles so far. With winter, I haven't had as much a chance to ride it as I would like. I felt confident on that 45 mile that I could do a century on it. But I swapped out the flat bars for some Northroad type. I wouldn't try long rides with a flat bar.

I would def. put drop bars on mine...the idea of having a bike to leave in the trunk (I work out of my home), is very appealing to me.
