- Mike from Michigan here. Just wanted to let you know I just purchased a Catrike 559. I got a steal of a deal... 2016 Catrike 559 with a Rohloff Speed Hub and a Schlumfp High Speed Drive, 3-fenders, Power Grips on std pedals, wrists rests, padded seat,
dual mirrors, headrest, twist shifters, and a rear rack, all in excellent shape and for just $2600. I have to drive to Boston next week to pick it up.
So, I couldn't yet afford a Dumont (although I still want one), but what can you tell me about the 559 that I need to know and/or might like to know. I am thinking about changing out the Schwalbe Marathon Racer's that come stock for either Kenda Flames or Schwalbe Big Apples and keep them minimally aired so as to provide passive suspension. Do you think that's a good idea? What else would you suggest I consider?
Please call me as I have lost your phone number. If we head to Tucson maybe we can ride together. Reach me (9AM-11PM) at: 517-721-1016 home or 269-986-8419 cell.
