How's it ride?
The ride is very smooth with the 33mm tubulars. Riding it is a whole ‘nuther deal. The chainring is a bit steep. It is a fast bike, very light and nimble but it is not quick like we are used to with multi gears. The coaster brake has a fresh film of grease on it so at the first ride it was needing a walk down that first hill. It’s a fun bike to ride but not a comfort bike.
