Anyone have a Naked bike? And specing questions.
Hey there everyone
I am wondering if any of you have or know someone who has a bike built by Naked. I am considering getting my custom touring frame from them due to their proximity and reasonable pricing. What would you suggest for specs for a really tall rider (6'8") with plans to do everything from weekend trips to yearlong international tours? Where are some good resources for coming to my own conclusions on this subject? I have seen some good sites but one area where there is a lack of info is drivetrains. I prefer to have my 220mm custom crank arms on there for hill climbing and to get full range of motion while pedaling but aside from knowing that and to get a triple crankset and cogset erring in favour of easier gears, I am coming up short of advice for specing drivetrains.
Thanks in advance for your input.
