I've just bought my new Cruiser. I had a half-hour test drive, and about a half-hour ride at home before tornado warnings made me quit!
While drooling over the trike at home, I noticed that the biggest chainfring up front has a few teeth ground down a bit. This may be due to accidents during test rides at the shop where I bought it, or maybe somebody just slipped and banged the ring on the ground while putting it away.
Should I worry much about it? I could post a photo somewhere if an engineer would like to see.
I'm short, and got the short boom. My shoes can bump the cross member if I don't position my feet properly. I'm sure those special bike shoes would fix that!
I'm interested in the 26-inch rear wheel, but don't know if I will need the lower gearing for hills. After a few rides I may get a better feel for that. Any 26-ers care to chime in?
Man, everybody looks at me on this thing. Lotsa thumbs up and grins. The biggest grin is on my face, though!
glad to be part of the insanity
