Re: New Bike

You need to stroke that thing (longer pedals) for more torque

For those you have to do the Card in the spokes mod as well as the infamous tassle grip mod.

Re: New Bike

Looks like it has the stock 954 seat, better upgrade it!

It's not due to the bike's design though. Some fine shavings off those solid wheels to adjust it to the riders weight/riding style and she'll be good to go. It has a very low center of gravity and most of the weight is on the front wheel as well if you look carefully.

I agree, that should help it turn!

Re: New Bike

Also a little Givi flyscreen. When going full out, you'll want to tuck and reduce you're frontal area. This could increase your top speed by 25% or more. 4mph to at least 5mph.

More if you're going downhill with tailwind. The screen can actually act as a reverse parachute with the tailwind!

Yes, and at that point you would have to remember to take your feet off the pedals as the speed at which you could pedal could become the limiting factor.

EDIT: At which point some nice freeway pegs might be a nice touch!
