Forrest got a new back wheel and a matching front with a dyno is in the works... also swapped the 40/48/53 triple for a 40/53 double.

Took this in the evening as the sun was setting and it shows off the dual stage powder as Forrest now has chameleon like abilities...

This was taken on a cloudy afternoon.

It has a coaster brake, I removed the rear handbrake and kept the front handbrake. Not sure of the gear inches. Bought a half link chain for it, and after switching out the 18T cog for a 16T, it fits perfectly. I need to get a pic posted of it.

Thanks

Well, folks, I've been reading and reading and have decided to jump in with my clothes on! I just ordered two 2014 Schwinn Loops from Sears, at 213 bucks each! They have a 60 day no questions asked return policy, so my wife and I are going to find out what this is all about! I've read some good reviews on these bikes. Can't be all bad. (Or not!) :) Best to all

My 2014 Dahon Vigor P9 was delivered yesterday. The color scheme looks awesome and bike rides great. As a bonus I was told I was the first US customer to buy the new Vigor so that's pretty cool. Here are a few pics...

Nice looking bike. what is the crank teeth count and what are the gear ranges in the cassette?

Thanks

netsurfr 05-29-14 06:04 PM

It has 53T in the crank & 11-32T with 9 gears so very nice range. Rides very well from my experience so far.

Ruth got some new wheels! Picked up a set of Araya 7x from the co-op and couldn't be happier with the results.

My daughter named him "Optimus Prime"... :D

http://www.ravingbikefiend.com/bikep...imus%20(2).JPG

Folded size is 20 by 29... weight is 31 and change with the rather heavy rear rack which is not bad for a 25 year old folder.

http://www.ravingbikefiend.com/bikep...imus%20(4).JPG

I picked the bike up this morning and as soon as I got home I swapped out the derailleur and shifter and swapped the steel folding crank for a road crank I had in the spare bin... also had the Tioga Astabula to square taper conversion kit.

I am most impressed with the ride quality and performance...

This is Arch he's a 28" folder :)) so far we had 240km travel,. I'm a bit afraid of using him on rough roads we had an accident together lols,. I'' thinking of changing his shifters, i find it hard using his downtube shifters but I can't figure out where to put handble bar shifters the space won't be enough and I'm not a fan of sti shifters on bullhorns they look funny,.. Are bar ends great? Are they comfortable to use?

Forrest and I spent a few hours in the shop today doing some upgrades...

9 speed rear wheel and an XT derailleur to do the heavy lifting...
