New Bike Friday NWT inbound
Sorry I was gonna wait until I actually had the bike to post anything, but I'm too excited. Just spoke to the rep at BF and my bike should be shipping today!
I ordered a NWT, British racing green front end, with a black rear triangle, drop bars and a back rack with the under rack bag. I contributed some components to the build to help keep my costs down, so I have a 2x9 drive train with bar ends. That is sufficient for anything I have planned for the next year or so. If I decide I need to climb the Rockies I'll look to upgrade the drive train.
I'll be touring for 2 weeks to a month in July on this bike but the day to day use is as my major form of transportation, with this in mind I an pairing it with the Burly Travoy trailer. I may do some short weekenders with the trailer too but mostly it will be my run around town trailer.
Fenders are going to be hand hammered and black chrome done for me by a local metal artist. Tape will eventually hand wrapped cord in a spiral pattern done by yours truly. Will look like this except in black.
I have no idea if that will work out but I am going to try it.
I haven't decided on a front rack yet, still looking for something I like.
