...And yet another N+1

Just picked up a new 'bent this past week. My intent is to set this up for club rides near home. Not many hills; so the triple Rotor cranks are not only heavy, but they're overkill. I might be able to pare 3-4 pounds off from its current weight.

Sweet! The Low Racers look more and more 'Normal' to me each time I see a pic of one.

No, not one in my future as I told my loving bride that I was finally satisfied when I got the Tour Easy. It'll be a long time before that one foolish statement wears off, if ever!

Here's wishing you tons of fun on the new machine.

That looks like more of a mid-racer, with the dual big wheels. Beautiful bike. What kind is it?
