Let the day begin. A bit over 21 miles this morning. The 26 x 2.125 tires on this iteration of Big Red transformed it into a totally different bike. Very nice ride.

Beautiful spring day for a shakedown ride on the f’ugly 4 gill. All good except for a squeaky saddle which i fixed on my return to the office. Had it wound up in top gear and she’s pretty fast.

Man, are your feet ever close to the ground! I thought Good From Afar was a tough stance to manage, that is plum crazy!
That they are! I've scraped the pedals at least a few times just learning how to steer this thing! It is crazy, but I wouldn't have it any other way! Also, you might have given me a new idea for a paint job on this bike!
At least if he wrecks and falls off the bike, Injuries and carnage will be minimal.
It also helps that I can't get it to go that fast either! :bigsmile:

Another beautiful spring day to be out riding. Had this beast of a ride wound out a few times today in the top 2 gears and have come to the conclusion it needs a front brake. The coaster brake on the Nexus 7 seems much weaker than the coaster brakes on any of my other rides and definitely not skid worthy. Have a great weekend everybody.

Dang, I thought my bike was a beast to ride! Yours is on another level! How do you even get on that thing?!
Same exact way @yoothgeye does.
Just need a little forward momentum. I can push off going up hills as well. Have to sit forward when climbing steep hills, front lifts slightly.
Wish I tried tall bikes sooner! Visibility is one of the best parts. It's easy, a lot of fun and pretty quick too... Going up, staying up.

ciao
