saw it on bikesdirect, and was wondering if anybody's riding one. i guess they just shipped out last week? i'm looking for another bike to cruise around town and bike to work with. the wt looks like it could handle both front and rear fenders and racks without an issue, but i think the gearing would make it tough for hills...especially with panniers?
if you got any input or pics, i'd be stoked...

I'm getting my Kilo Stripper today (supposedly... damn UPS), the WT may have been a better choice for me as I'll be doing a lot of town riding and I bet the WT would ride nicer. I imagine you would be pleased

there are only a few times when it's appropriate to complain about the gearing on a bike, for instance when a touring bike is sold without a triple. On a single speed, the gearing can be changed in about 15 minutes, for $15.

Complaining about trivial problems is what the internet is all about. :lol:
