It reminds me of the Celeste green on a Bianchi.

Snow riding would be scary even if the correct tires are on.

Any chance of a few more pictures from different angles? Reminds me of the polished aluminum aircraft of the WWII era. Nice

Updated picture of my Matte Bark Electra Cruiser 1 . I changed out the rear cog to a 24 tooth . I spin out around 11.5-12mph . Awesome for spinning up the small hills in my neighborhood.

Love the Matte Bark (didn't know the name until you mentioned it). I bought my wife a pre Trek Coaster 3 recently. It's fun to ride, and light for what it is. I might add a front brake to this as well. I'm worried that a rim brake will scuff up the anodizing on the rim, so I'm considering trying cork pads. Definitely going to add a front basket. I wanted to use the same Topeak MTX rack I have on my daily, so we could share my DXP bag, the MTX mesh basket, and baby seat. But I've been thinking that might be a mistake, since it's the mens frame, and it's easier to swing a leg over the rear wheel, than over that tall top tube. The front basket will probably look better anyway. THIS ONE looks pretty good, and price is icing on the cake.

Holy mackerel. When someone asks for more photos you don't fool around. How about one with Mount Rushmore in the background? Or on the deck of an aircraft carrier? That's some bike you have there! Thanks

Just finished assembly and a 15 mile shake down ride on a BikesDirect Special: Gravity SaltyDog:


I'll provide a more detailed review of the assembly and riding impressions later tonight.
