My Downtube Mini arrived...

I got home around 5:30 with nothing on my doorstep. Went out 'til about 10:30 only to come back and find a big, slightly damp box waiting for me. Oh it's going to be a late night.

(Downtube mentions White Lightning chain lube but nobody carries it around me. Any suggestions on a fairly clean, more available brand?)

Yeah I know. Made me a little nervous before ordering but I'm not very hard on bikes. Key thing for me is size. I think this puppy has a chance of fitting in the trunk of the miata.

...and it's minty fresh.

Your Mini will be fine. I am now sorry I didn't put it better but I don't see a way of editing the title.

hee hee it fits!

Okay so I had to pull off the seat post and stem, but it fits and I can probably fit a sandwich in there too

Now I'll see if I need to try Dr Jur's suspension mod. Did I mention this is a great forum?
