Well since the frame was made in 2006, I kind of doubt it! I had a guy that practically thru his Cruzbike and cash at me when I had a Bachetta Strada for sale. I will admit he got right on my Strada...

Ever rode one? I would never recommend a first time recumbent rider to start off with one. Most new recumbent riders have a hard time with a high racer let alone front wheel drive. I kind of agree...

Did you waller out the holes at each end? I will be the first to admit I never knew this until recently, but in my defense, I cut them with a Dremel so never had an issue. Still, it makes it better.

Yeah, I pondered the decision on wheel colors a little bit. They had a freaking blue that matched but I wasn't patient enough to wait for them. I may think about that later but I like it for now.

I think the solution may be to just run the brakes outside of the bars. I did a little tune up on the shifting and and it is shifting well. Also, I guess I could run the Jagwire links but not sure at...

I think this is accurate. I ordered 1 1/8 spacers and they have some play. I should have known since I had a Bacchetta Ti bike with a 1 inch fork and riser set up and had to get spacers for it. So, I...
