    New B F Tikit

    Picked up my new Speeding Tikit on on Tuesday and love it. Road about 40 miles on it to day and it is very comfortable and fun. Rides better then my road bikes ever did. Maybe it's because it's new but I don't think so.

    Should look even better when I get the regular stem. That is a "fit stem". After I ride it for about 150 miles i send it back and they make the permanent one. Only bad thing about it is i will have to do without the bike for about 2 weeks.

    We preach this often around here. Before you know it you'll be listing said road bikes on ebay.

    Already sold them, didn't have room for them. That's the reason I went to the folding bikes.

    No the tires are not an upgrade. Front 52-39 Targa Double, Rear 9-26 9 speed. And I do like the way the color came out, all my other bikes have been red, nice change. I ordered it through a local bike shop up the coast from me.
