The deeper the better for this bike!

Light is brilliant, magic shine 880 £120 off eBay.

On 10% power I get 4 weeks use easy and on 100% it kicks out 2000 lumens and gives you a suntan 8)

Just been to the London Bike Show....had a quick look at the Moonlander, such a cool bike, the salesman guy was quite shocked I knew so much about them!!!! :wink:
I found the wheels quite odd..the one on display was laced to one side of the rim. I like the Bill and Ted trailers that are available...cool names.

The Salsa Beargrease looks good..

Yeah the rear wheel is offset, so it's aligned with the offset frame.....this allows you to run 100mm rims and use a 135mm rear hub :wink:

Hence the deep dish on rear....
