I can’t quite picture how you’d even use the lowest part of the bars. Like having flat bars on a slammed stem.
Not sure either, but that is part of why I would like to give it a try :)
Pure 80s madness. Love it.
I've found just the bike for you.
So much want right now. Was hoping it was an Ebay link.. .
Finally managed to squeeze in a first ride on the Kestrel. Surprisingly it feels just like any other bike. I was expecting the lack the of a seat tube would add some suspension into the mix, but that is definitely not the case. Feels as harsh as any other modern bike.
So good. Stem looks great and the spinergys go perfect on this. Amazing build, enjoy.
I love this thread. You seem to buy the bikes everyone else would love to build but ultimately says 'nah fuck that'. The Kestrel is fantastic.
Thanks for all the kind words.
I changed the Deda because it was too long and crazy flexy. The 3T (Chromix it think it is called) is the exact opposite in terms of flex. Hoping the Specialized bars will add some comfort to the mix.
There is a softride tandem on eBay
The Kestrel is really starting to grow on me, so I decided it was time to treat it to something nice and shiny.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
