I am the owner of a good beginner 'bent, the EZ-Speedster. (I have the middle model, not the top of the line aluminum one, nor the bottom of the line, heavy cromoly one.)
Kenda tires, 1.5; mediocre SRAM shifters, no fairing (yet).
Now, here's the situation: I would like to go faster. Short of getting an Bacc. Aero (my dream bent) or a lowracer of something -- and short of working on the engine more than I already am (I'm jogging a few km a day, and riding a couple times a week, and doing 400-500 stairs twice a week) -- what can I do to make the 'bent go faster?
My own thoughts so far:
- get better, lighter, more aerodynamic wheels
- switch to a thinner tire, maybe a Marathon
- fairing and/or tail fairing
- start saving for a pricey lighter bent
Advice and tips greatly appreciated. Thanks.
