Glad it arrived safely- and the bill for the extra carriage will follow.
It's ride was good, kind of like steel. The compact gearing made it spry - it accelerated well under my meager power. The Campy dual pivot breaks work well and the shifting is passable.
A note on shipping - I ordered the deal of the day from Performance Bicycle yesterday
. Its a large size Performance Aluminum MTB frame. I got it for $60 shipped. It arrived today
! A coworker is giving me a donor Huffy MTB for parts. I still may need a threaded fork and headset. My son is heading to college in three weeks and I'm concerned his Klein MTB would have a very short half life on campus.
Korval is Ships
See my Hyperlite 411 it's the photo model on OutRiderUSA web page
