    Hemet Rider,

    Can vouch for that; it does look good! Very nice bike, period.

    Wife and I ran into him on Beachmont St. here in the Ventura Keys this afternoon! It was in the 90's and 100's inland, but a beautiful 70-75 here by the water.

    Fun to meet another Forum member.

    (Of course his bike is ALL Green Gear Green, too - great color choice!)

    Lou

    Beautiful! I love the curved stem riser. If I had to do all over again, I might get the curved stem for my Crusoe, and heck, the Tikit, too, now that I see yours.

    I think weight and a passive suspension. It probably makes packing faster.

    Of course it comes with several disadvantages.

    Weight and I like the way it looks. Also like not having sharp corner in front of me if I go down.

    I'm interested to know more... could I use this on my Swift? How does it all fit together? How much does it weigh?

    The Swift has a 1" OD steerer over which the riser fits.

    Hope this photo helps. Looks like about 1 1/4 inch OD and fits inside the steerer. Don't know how much it weighs, made to fit for me by Bike Friday.
