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.
