Hello my name is AL.
I am a Registered Nurse and I do visiting home service.In New York City Manhattan.I treat about 15 patients /Day.Riding a bike would help alot.I also would use it for getting around and for exercise doing 2-3 laps around Central Park 5 days a week.
I want to purchase a fold up.The 3 models I am considering are.
1) speed 8 2) Mu P8 3) Mu SL
The mu line are all aluminum frames so they are very stiff and don't absorb the road.I was thinking to put big apple tires since I found an article explaining wider tires absorb the road better.
besides a wt difference of 6 lbs and both having aluminum frames.What can somebody tell me about the difference in components? I found a review on the Mu SL and nothing on the Mu P8.
Speed 8 is heavy and I read an article where a owner of a Speed 8 handle stem broke off completely right above the folding joint.Luckly he stated he wasn't going fast.Question can I have that weld point reinforced by a welder?I don't know much about welding and aluminum.What could I do to make this model lighter.?
I look forward to hearing from my new Pals here in the bike forum
