I like your solution of turning the bottle cage backwards to fit the bottle. I use a shorter wide-mouth bottle because a standard bottle is too long. I am glad that I saw your solution.

The bottle was hitting the steering post,...a definite no-no! I need shorter water bottles.

Becoming a favorite

This BF Pocket Llama was made for my neighbor, who seldom rode it. He passed recently and his wife gifted(!) their two matching custom Pocket Llamas to me and my wife. Riding this bike reminds me of Bill and Id like to think that hed prefer these bikes get used. Im leaving the badge on the bike with his name and the bikes serial number.

Bill was quite a bit shorter than I, and I commissioned a longer seatmast from BF. It now fits quite nicely. Looking forward to some bike travel with these.

That is a very kind and generous gift from your neighbor's widow and you are to be commended for treating these bikes with such reverence. Best wishes for many enjoyable rides on these fine machines.

We had so many delays getting these in it wasn't even real. We got them in two weeks ago today, I stocked the shelves, put one in my car and drove to North Carolina and biked around Emerald Aisle for a few days to put it through its paces and it was great! The 2.125 tires make a pretty big difference.

They are made by a small company called HengYuanDa. I was reluctant at first, but they have a great ride quality. I don't know their durability yet, but they roll great, have a nice tight tread, and a very comfortable ride (without feeling squishy). I will try to take a better photo of the tire tomorrow.

Weight?

I recently changed the tires on my 406er after a bit of research. There are quite a few wide, plump tires for 406 but most all are real porkers in weight. And I'm no weight weenie.

Weight? I take it it's a bit of a porker since you ignored the question earlier.

45-50 psi. I value the slightly less rolling resistance, but they're still quite cushy.

I run about the same on my 53-406 tires. 45/30psi back/front is the sweet spot. I weigh about 70kg (154lbs).

Good question. Safe so far...

How much do you weigh? Tire pressure, as you know, is load dependent.
