O_o, did you assemble the PF frame yourself?

Their service concerns me a little as they only have an web form to fill-out to contact them (no phone number or address listed).

Was this due to a failure to communicate?... Congrats, Eric, you're ready to jump into some of these tandem-friendly rides now, too!

I just got this bike. It's a Pashley Moulton TSR30. 20" wheels, full suspension, space frame, Campy. Don't see it much in this country. Will pick it up in August!

Congrats! Looks like a load of fun. Just curious: why 26"?

I scared her by starting across an intersection when she wasn't ready, so that one was a communication problem. I got scared when we were coasting over a bumpy wooden bridge and started wobbling. She saved us by starting up the pedalling again! All smiles at the end though, with some nice comments like "Hey I was right with you the whole time!"

We're going to do the 30mile Tour of Napa Valley on Aug 17. Should be fun!

Nearly 2" lower standover height vs the 700C, so she can captain with our kid in back.

In order (right to left) the evolution of my choices:
- 2001 Cannondale R600 Triple
- 2007 Trek Mandone 5.2 SL
- 1987 Trek 1000 with Campagnolo
- 2004 Specialized S-Works E5 Custom

Some of people's bikes are beautiful! I guess i'm more of the 'technical' less artsy person

it was actually my first time up diablo.
i have read it time and time again on this forum, and wow - i fully agree that the driveway at the top is no joke.

all in all it was an awesome ride, and the descent is well worth every inch of the climb.

Just finished restoring this bike (in the foreground) - a 1970 Moulton MK3. It shares a stable with my 2007 Moulton TSR
