I got my new Sun EZ Sport CX (moly frame - I'm a bit on the large side) back in mid-March and blathered on in typical newbie fashion about how I'd bought the perfect bike, yadda, yadda, yadda. Mr. Blazing Pedals told me I'd be looking for my next 'bent in about a year-and-a-half. Well, I've spent literally hundreds of more dollars getting the thing configured the way I want it, you know...perfect...and then I rode the XL Stratus. DAMN!
So, Mr. Blazing Pedals Sir, you're wrong. It only took 4 months for me to get the itch again. My Sport will be kept for a commuter since I really do like it, but the Stratus will be my ultimate touring mount! It's JUUSSSTTT perfect! OK, perfect with some serious modifications to follow. Now that Longbikes Slipstream, it's interesting with the LWB USS setup. And hey, what about an Easy Racers model! Of course, to be fair I've gotta check out the SWB bikes too...and the trikes! Whew! This is gonna be expensive! BBJ
