[FONT=Arial]undefined[/FONT] I have just rented the EZ1 Speedster for a test ride . After the ride I have a bit more knowledge to go on that the bent reps don't talk about.First off I am not an experienced bent rider, however the ride was good in speed and manuverabilty. But the reason I want a bent versus the dual susp. mountain bike I own is for neck/hand pains and a lower elevation. I ride mostly hard pack gravel mining / logging and train track beds ( groomed no ties or rail as in tourist areas). I tried to put a bmx tire on the front of the Speedster and although you can fit it in the tire rubs the fork on both sides, and will not turn. The back tire fits but the fender ( could be wrong fender) is not wide enough to allow tread.
Now the big question.
Are there any bents out there that people ride on gravel trails without the inherrant problems of losing the front end or jolting the kidneys to mush???
