    Pacific Reach (non-folding) folder sized bike

    Well I have been on this forum off and on for a couple of years and had a few bikes since then.

    I recently had a Dahon Jetstream P8 but althought it was great I was fascinated with the Reach and managed to get hold of probably one of the very few Special Edition Scandium framesets in the UK (100 worldwide), so I had to sell the Dahon and get the Pacific as a stable mate to my beach cruiser.

    Its all done now but wasnt sure which part of the forum I can join, since this is more like a Mini-Velo I guess but has the same frame size as a normal folder, so now this is the closest forum I could join up with as it has 20'' wheels.

    I love it, built to my choice, but it rides amazingly well and I love the fact is it so light and quick

    Here is most of the spec and some pics, I hope you like it:

    SRAM XO rear mech

    Avid Speed Dial Ultimate brake levers
    Tektro R559 brake calipers
    Kinetix Pro Red 20'' wheelset
    Hope skewers
    Thomson Masterpiece 31.6mm x 350mm layback seatpost
    KCNC Scandium 8% flat bar
    Thomson Elite stem
    Schwalbe Durano tyres
    Brooks Team Pro Vans saddle
    Hope F20 flat pedals
    KCNC SC13 Twin seat clamp
    Selle Royal Mano (Athletic) grips.

    Thanks, I like it and am glad I got it done the way I wanted it. I could have gotten a new SL out the box but wanted to get my own built. Since I already had the Kinetix wheelset that I was going to put on the Jetstream, I am glad I could put them on this bike instead, because even with the Kinetix on the Jetstream, it would still have been a pretty heavy bike.

    I didnt weigh the frameset but the whole bike is 9.5 kg (about 21lbs). I could get it a bit lighter with a different saddle and pedals but I was going for a certain look as well as lightness and quality parts so I am pretty happy with it.

    I dont think there is anything I would change on it, maybe a more comfy saddle but I have had the saddle about a year and I really need to start using it and wear it in, but it is taking a while, typical issue with the Brooks Team Pro I am told :-).
