I ended up swapping the wheels and tires with the Electra I had stashed away. I am not sure which look I prefer yet but I am leaning towards the whitewalls/silver wheels.

I just have to say that I recently finished a bike that was a knockoff of that Nirve design, and the original is s nicer by far. Your welds are so much more tidy, those dropouts are a far better style. That really cleaned up nicely.

What brand was yours? Was it one of those Micargi cruisers? I had one not long ago that I flipped.

Really bad welds, all kinds of alignment issues, really thin tins, it was obviously not made with quality in mind. I can immediately see the difference on the Nirve.

Ah ok, you turned it into a sweet unit though!
