I'm really thinking of buying a pocket rocket or NWT this spring. Can some owners answer some questions for me?
What kind of problems have you had with these bikes if any?
Has anyone ordered a custom from a different country and how was that handled? I'm in Korea and there is a Seoul BF but I guess the frames are made in the US then shipped here, the prices are a little higher and I'm not sure they offer the same components.
What's the real benefit of getting a custom frame besides a closer fit without stem change? I can't figure out how much extra a custom fit frame is compared to a stock unit.
How much do the stock NWT and PR weight?
Is the bike pretty safe to throw in a box for flights? I don't want the suitcase/trailer.
Will it mess up the folding/packing on a PR to put a shallow drop bars that are wider than the stock bars?
Anyone do randos on either of these bikes?
Any other tidbits of advice or information are welcome. I have a full touring bike and a road bike. We have really good public transportation here but generally bikes aren't allowed. I want to be able to just bus or train out anywhere in Korea and ride.
