    Can you let us in on which one you got please ?
    Bike is really awesome by the way :thumb

    I have mounted my pedal tip on the bottom to make it work with my 30mm low pegs, but it feels a bit insecure....

    Thanks, and sorry this took so long as was out of internet range for a few days..

    Dang it, I read somewhere that it wasn't adjustable so didn't look at it to see.. embarrassing. First adv bike after old cr's for years.. thanks again.

    Nice bike I really like your grafics. I'm very inspired for when I buy mine. Speaking of that does anyone know if in switzerland the 790 will go down in price because of the 890? I'm still deciding which to get.

    Why not? Just contact satapiikki and set your bike up with some spike tires .. but most likely it will be one long fall in helsinki area so knobbies will do just fine

    I was thinking the same thing the other day. I've been postponing buying the 790 because of winter and maybe see how the 890 will be, and now with this weather I've been regretting waiting. Also I'm living in Geneva do you know any nice dirt roads in switzerland to ride, because most are forbidden.

    Your best bet will be to cross the border and head over to France. :thumb

    yah that was what I thought :(. I did see that the TET route has some dirt roads and it mentions a wild camping spot in the Jura area. Does anyone have any experience with that?

    I know the feeling.. got the beast in the barn and take it out every other day looking for new places to drive off-road in the netherlands... got “in touch” with some mad farmers already claiming the roads are private property etc... googling my ass off for GPX files with nices routes on them but so far not that much luck... guess i gotta plan some trips to belgium/france next year when corona allows!
