Joined the Folding Universe-Pacific Reach Road

Yesterday I took possession of a Pacific Reach Road. It came packed in its American Travelways suitcase. Neat! Have to call my LBS today to see if they have time to let me watch them assemble it so as not to have to need assistance in the future for assembly and disassembly. Will give first blush impressions when I finally get to ride.

I've been reading this forum for about 6 months digesting information about the various models available and wish to thank all the members who have posted their impressions and experiences. It was valuable in narrowing down those models which were appealing to my style of riding. I'm sure I will have many questions about customising the Reach to my needs and wants and thank all members in advance for any assistance you might render.

To my amazement I have figured out how to get this about 85% together. The LBS opens in a few minutes.

I met Don yesterday and purchased a KHS Mocha from him. He is a really nice guy and an enthusiast. He also builds trailers and that is next on my list.
