    I don't do tour riding; but I'm 6'2", a little heavier than you, owned both a 62 cm and 60 cm Cross-Check. The 62, I commuted on for about 10 years and have at least 36,000 miles on it. So the...

    Thanks for the replies. I checked out the Australian guy's review and his links to others. Tough choice. People's photos don't show anything close to "crashing thru dense vegetation", so it's...
  4. Extrawheel/Bob choice - How important is width on single track?

    I'm trying to choose between a Bob and Extrawheel trailer.

    I know the Bob is about 18" wide and the Extrawheel set up I'll be using will be about 25" width. My handle bars are about 23", but I...

    Man, you forgot to mention the VeloOrange bell on your spec list. I rotated the dome forward on mine for better aerodynamics. Okay, it was it was easier to find the spring/clanger thing that way.

    It's a standard Tikit that I put a Nexus 8 on. I used a Surly Singleator to take up the chain slack. The handlebars are northroad type and the swing back prevents the fold, so I put on a longer...

    How do you like the steps with the i-9? I switched from a Nexus 8 to the i-9 and love it. Got the Velo Orange bell too. I'll get a photo up tomorrow.

    I've had both a Tikit and NWT with an internal gear hub Nexus 8. I'd say the NWT is more like a travel bike where you pack it up for a trip, unpack it and ride for a week or so, and then repack it...

    Nah uh. I got an i-Motion 9. It's a 4-spline cog. I wished it was a 3-spline and could take a 16 tooth cog, but it still works on my Cross Check. It would have been nice on the Tikit though. 29...

    tcs - How about the cog? Is it a regular 3 splined cog? The reason I asked was that I wanted to put a SRAM i-motion 9 on my Tikit, but they don't use a 3 splined cog. The gear inches looked good...

    Yeah, I have one on a Surly Crosscheck and another on a Bike Friday. They are 8 speed. It's generally recommended to get the premium red band version with better bearings or the newer Alfine line. ...

    Okay, much thanks. I can see the mounting points now. On the regular Tikit it's about in the center of the curve connecting the seat and chain stays. On the Seasons Tikit the mounting point is...

    Here's the photo. It's got both types and the single hoop support looks a different length to me.

  15. Vic, a Tikit fender question for you please

    I've got both a Seasons Tikit and a regular Tikit now and I want to switch to rear fender/rack to one and the solo fender to the other. The regular Tikit solo fender "hoop" support doesn't seem to...

    My longest has been about 45 miles so far. With winter, I haven't had as much a chance to ride it as I would like. I felt confident on that 45 mile that I could do a century on it. But I swapped...

    I guess it's not unusual then. I needed something just to get it started too. A fairly wide flat blade screwdriver pushed in near the grommet at the base and then give a twist usually did the trick.

    Jeeze, that's the cleanest sidewalk I've ever seen. And it's winter. That's just not right.

    Vic, I glimpsed a hubbub adapter. Is that a Nexus 8 with a double chain ring? How is that combo working out? I know it goes well with zebras.

    It's a black Nexus. I didn't know that they came in black either. It's an SG-8R25 so it's the red band version, even though there isn't a red band. Personally I would have preferred silver, but...

    Oohps, my bad. I just recalled that BF sends it with a multi tool that has a 3mm allen wrench. Since I already had one when I got a NWT, they didn't send another set with the Tikit to save me a few...

    It's just for the Seasons Tikit's adjustable rear dropout. I think One Way Tikit (the fixed gear version) has the same type. The Seasons Tikit has an internal hub and to adjust the chain tension...
