From the caption: "Ron does a lot of touring with his Swift and sent in this picture of his bike loaded up. He packs it into a 31" Samsonite hardshell suitcase. Some of his changes include Shimano Alfine 11 hubs, Sun Rhyno Lite rims, and Schwalbe tires."
This is pretty much exactly what I'm considering. I'm wondering if Ron hangs out here, because I'd really like to get in contact.
PS: Any Swift owners in the Seattle / Everett area reading this? Would you mind letting me take a test ride? I've not ridden on 20" wheels yet and I really ought to before buying one.
