after brief research, i am highly curious about the steel swift folder and i have a bunch of questions...
first off i would like this to replace my road bike, so how does it add up to a 700c road bike in:
speed? (are 20 inch wheels significantly slower than 700c)
handling? (do the smaller wheels make the ride feel twitchy?)
reach? (i ride a 56cm with a 7cm stem)
weight? (i know the pre built ones are about 28 pounds but has anyone built one up with a light wheelset
and components? if so, whats the lightest you can get it?)
and does the frame have a derailleur hanger?
and is there enough tire clearance for bigger tires? or even larger wheels (with smaller tires)?
any and all help would be greatly appreciated......Thanks!
p.s. i did look through the swift thread but the useful info is hard to pick out between all the chit chat...
