Once you're cruising at over 10mph, it is fine, but it isn't as nice a ride
as a Coker. It is more twitchy which is great when maneuvering around things
and dodging rocks (I took it offroad only a little). But overall, the
Coker's fat HUGE tire and massive momentum is the nicer more stable ride. I
plan to put in more miles this week.
A half dozen riders tried it this weekend and all were successful (John Foss
the most). The little bit of "gear slop" bothers everyone a little and is
another point against it, but everyone enjoyed it.
