    Since you brought it up .... I think it looks like a standard 40 ft bus. The jerky video timeline seems to show 2.5 secs to pass the bus. 11 mph is 16.1 fps x 2.5 = 40. Right about my guestimate. The...

    There is nothing worse than a cheap bike with cheap deraillers.

    All I see wrong with the van is the bumper is tilted down a bit. Not likely an upright hit from behind.

    It has a 46T ? Well it doesn't cost much to try different cogs. SA was always designed for up hill and down hill, which I agree with. I like powering down dips to get momentum for going back up. You...

    No, I haven't bought a Linus, but looked at them a lot at the local dealer. Their style really stands out in a crowd. DeR is a derailler. I now have a custom tour bike with a Rohloff and an SA XL-FDD...

    Yayyy Glad you came to your senses after considering a yucchy DeR. Linus must be getting desperate building that POS.

    For me, the Fork/ steertube is the deathtrap here. Nothing straight about it. The stem is rather high in there.
    The frame likely has stress in the head tube. I would scrap it.
