The shorteners are good, but they are definitely not for weight weenies.
I would also definitely recommend straps for the rear.
Our longest ride is maybe 25 miles or so, they complain about the saddle more than anything
That explains why there were straps on the rear on mine too. My wife wasn't too happy with them so I immediately binned them. Guess I will have to dive in now and retrieve them.
Came across these lovely Groovy Luv handle bars on a local forum a couple of days ago and immediately jumped on them. I had planned on using both for the tandem, but when I reached out to the seller one of them was already sold. I did purchase the remaining (steel) one, only to come to the conclusion that there is now way to fit it to the single bolt stem I had just purchased for the tandem. So change of plans, the bars are now on my fatbike.
I was planning on upgrading some bits on the red Bike Friday tandem and giving it a fresh coat of paint. Then this came up for sale. It was priced reasonably for what it is and seemed like a great way do the refurb, without loosing the ability to ride a tandem.
So what's the deal, you just change the top and bottom frame tubes and make it as long or as short as you like? Cool!
I don't know to be honest, but I guess that is how it works. Will see how it works when (and if) it turns up.
Picked up this amazing piece of engineering tonight. It's a Rotor RS4 crankset. Crazy heavy and does all sorts of crazy stuff. I will try and shoot a short film tomorrow to show how it works.
Thinking of putting it on the Kestrel. I also have non aero chainrings to go with it, which will probably look better.
Some updates to the fat bike. Added some weight on the bars. Spared some on the pedals. Also added some comfort.
Frame bag in the making thanks to @Tijmen. He will also be doing a set of panniers if all goes well.
New wheel day. Purchased recently on Ebay for a steal at 150 euro. They seem to be in good condition. Fitting the tires with Effetto was super easy.
