My only wish was for a 6 speed other than that it's a great bike. I'm planning a trip from Ohio to Nova Scotia in June 09' on this little bugger. If anyone is interested let me know.
I just switched to IRC GP 110's and installed a Happy Trails rack for aluminum panniers. I've also added a Garmin Quest II GPS, battery tender and auxillary power outputs.
I'll try and up load some pics. Wardie
I've been looking everywhere for a 41t sprocket and can not find one anywhere! is there any site that has them they you could put up a link of?
