Upgrades almost done on my Bike Friday
I got my Bike Friday Pocket Pilot about 2 weeks ago.
Upgrades I have done:
Changed Tektro entry level brake calipers with Ultegra calipers,
Changed Tektro brake levers with some Shimano Br 600's.
New Brake cables as well.
Replaced 52 Tiagra chainring with FSA 53.
Replaced Shimano Altus rear derailleur with Ultegra short cage 6600.
Replaced Sram pg 830 11-32 rear cassette with pg 850 11-28.
Put on a Brooks B-17 special saddle
Shimano 540 pedals.
I have Shwalbe Stevios tires on the way
and last thing will be a carbon seatpost.
Almost every item above was not necessary as this bike rode great right out of the box
but I now have a bike that rides as nice as my full sized road bike and is exactly the way I want it.
If I only could keep one bike, it would be this one.
On the other had I have done nothing to my new Dahon Helios P8 except put on a Brooks saddle and I am having a ball riding that one as well.
I am hooked on these d*&^m folders now!!!!
