Yeah, definately a convert, it felt great on the sand as it just floats along but the biggest suprise was riding over all the large river type boulders in the estuary. the was no getting pinballed around, it just rode over everything with no complaints at all.
The size was a bit of a concern as its a 16'' with high tyres but last year when i got it it was the smallest they did, now they do a 14'' and I needed to get it out as I know theres a frame with 10% off in a January sale at triton, but it ends in a couple of days. Thankfully I really dont need to, it fits fine and is comfortable to ride. i rode the beach, rocks streams and then went into the woods and I never once thought about the size, even when i stepped off a couple of times. so I figure its fine. Probably if I ran flat bars etc it might be a bit long.
The crazy thing was how it soaks up evrything in the tyres, its like suspension and really smooths things out, rocks, ripples, tree roots etc. I was riding over the ripples on the beach no handed
I really like it, complements my 1X1 nicely
Bummed as well as I thought Dunkeld was this weekend coming, heather just told me, glad someone looks at dates and stuff.
Carlsberg dont build Singlespeeds but if they did.......they would probably look just like mine.
I've spent half my life on bikes.........the other half I wasted
