    Thanks for the compliments guys. Sorry for the tardy reply, I don't check the forum very often.

    Mr. Jim, the Nano "blem" I received had some scratches on the drive side seatstay. None had gone deeper than the base coat. The most noticable was a 5mm gouge (at the top/right of this image):


    I usually don't bother trying to touch up vehicle finishes but I've heard black is easy to do. Maybe if I think of it someday I'll pick up a bottle of black enamel at the hobby shop.
    I have the heart of a young boy. I got it on eBay.

    Can anyone tell me the width of the front dropouts? I am thinking about buying a Nano and mounting a front hub motor. Robert

    Just bought a near new orange 48cm Nano today off ebay and can't wait to ride it. Former owner sold it because he was too big for it. Price was right as I may wind up changing some things down the road.

    Buy some nail polish at the drug store and you can fix up those blems easily. I did that to a Windsor Clockwork I bought from BikesIsland and you had to really look for the paint issues after that.

    I need an original Nano front brake for a project I'm working on. If anyone has one for sale please send me a PM. Bill.

    I just discovered these little bike-tinkerer wonders, and the 53s are out of stock at Bikesdirect. Any help locating a black 53 would be greatly appreciated.

    Will fit nicely in there and you can buy the wider width one than the 82mm wide ones I had to get for my Brompton/Moulton.

    Two orange 53s left at bikeisland. If color isn't critical.

    Hey Ryan, I recognize you from the iBob. I found a pristine orange 53 on SF Bay Craigslist with Sugino 48-34 cranks and Kojaks. I just got it home. I was looking for a black one, but I'm digging the orange. Time to dig into the parts bin. I'm thinking some old Mavic derailers would be a nice touch..

    Sounds like a score! I got a black one when they first came out but sold it. Now I have the bug again and an orange one coming my way. From past experience I'll need to change the stem/bars/levers/saddle but hopefully can otherwise avoid upgradeitis (not that there's anything wrong with that...).

    Bar/stem/levers being changed as we speak, but with stuff I already have. My parts stash is why I decided to start with the Nano instead of the $1100 Soma Mini.

    LOVE it. I just got back from my first ride. Those tiny little Kojaks make it feel CRAZY fast. Fun bike!

    Here's my second one after I foolishly sold the first. But it's orange, so it's okay.

    I like it a million times better with my trusty Brooks Pro and Grand Bois Maes bars.DSCF3198.jpg

    I need to post some new photos of mine-- changed out the crank and bottom bracket for an Isis/octalink job. Also was at an LBS today, and they sold me their old shop stock odd size tires and rims for fifty cents apiece-- included some NOS 451 rims and 20x1 tires-- anyone converted their nano to 451? Aside fro the tubes, that is...

    With the new cranks, 30$ at the local co-op, included the bottom bracket. Substantially lighter than the stock ones:





    Better looking too.

    Say, what kind of Axiom rack is that? I looked but couldn't quite figure out the model. Thanks!

    Axiom Phoenix.

    I don't think it's made any longer, judging by the axiom site. I got it on sale at Nashbar; there's a similar but not identical one there now.

    Has anyone else had squealy brakes? I took off the stock pads and installed Kool Stop Continentals. Sanded the pads down but the squeal is still awful. Any tips? I don't know if the rim surface has something to do with it.
