beautiful setup and reminds me of my gray 7.4 fx on which i have the bontrager delxue rack and bontrager fenders. i ride on smooth surfaces always so i swapped out to 25mm tires and this thing is now a mountain climber. what do you have mounted to the cockpit? a bike computer and what else? cheers.

I have a Garmin 520, a Nite Rider Lumina 750 front light and there is also a Nite Rider rear light attached to the rack (but it is out of view. Yesterday I installed a Brook's B17 saddle. I'm running 28mm tires. I moved down to the 28's from the stock 32's and I'm pretty sure the 28's are here to stay.

nice. i have 28mm tires on my older 7.3 fx. did you notice the steering to be a bit more twitchier as you went down a tire size?

Not really. It is running Continental 4000sII @ 28mm. I'm very happy with the ride characteristics. Right now it's ridden 95% on smooth roads and paths. The current configuration is setup to do casual rides under 30 miles. I have a road bike I use specifically for higher mileage exercise. I really have no immediate need for a wider tire. Once the virus passes, I have some tentative plans to do some overnight rides where I'll have to pack a few extra things so I might size back up to 32's for that purpose specifically.

I bet that's a very comfortable ride! Does the rack have front mounting struts (keep it from rotating forward and rearward)?

I used to live in Herndon, right behind the high school off Dranesville Rd. I spent countless hours riding the trails in Sugarland Run park with my friends. I never did ride the W&OD much when I lived there. I'm out in Winchester now...I need to get back to Herndon and check out some of the places I used to ride.

The rack is integrated with the rear fender which has a strong steel rib running down the spine that is bolted to the rack near the top and mounted tightly to the bottom bracket area.. Doesn't seem to need any additional support. I've loaded it up with grocery panniers and about 35+ pounds of food. 55lbs weight limit.

Nice thing about this bike is it comes with fenders, rack, rear kick stand, and integrated front and rear lighting. It's super comfy and it's relatively light for an ebike. Upgraded to a Brooks B67 and have Ergon GP5 grips on order.

When I'm riding with my fiancé, I'm usually riding my Roll and she's on the Verve+. Great way for her to keep up (or for her to stay ahead of me!)

Moved to Reston from Hawaii (don't ask) back in October and have enjoyed the W&OD a lot (my apartment is about 2 minutes from the trail). I'll check out the Sugarland Run trails. I believe there is a direct connection between the W&OD and the park trails, right? - thanks!!!

Real nice job you did there. Trying to figure out what changes you did other than chainring, handle bars and tires...

yeah those were the vital changes - of course you also need road STIs first thing

then the less-vital changes to make it all work right:
  • switched to a wider range freewheel
  • switched the v-brakes to 80mm mini-v brakes to get the lever-feel/modulation correct
  • swapped in a shorter stem
  • added a chain guide
  • longer kickstand to compensate for the taller tires
  • different saddle to compensate for the more road-like riding position (not shown)
  • shortened the chain a bit
  • redid all the cables/housing/tape

then the "just-because" changes:
  • scraped off some decals/stickers
  • lightweight pedals
  • lightweight skewers
  • chainstay protector

Customization: replaced the stem (110mm --> 80mm), CF handlebars w/ESI Chunkies instead of the Bontrager isobar / grips, aluminum seatpost with FSA SL-K carbon post, Selle Italia seat instead of the Bontrager seat, & replaced the tires w/ tubes for tubeless tires........new wheelset on the way..........

This bike has served my purposes after five years and is still a joy to ride. I do wish that it had through axels but still a keeper.
