Overall it's going pretty good. I still have a wobble in my crank and the gear box still makes the whining noise. I hit a bump that broke a spoke and un-trued my rim but was able to fix it. I don't like the fuel tank. It needs to be bigger and the cap needs to be easier to get a proper seal. I'm probably going to replace it with a camping fuel bottle.
You may want to check with Staton for a larger tank, I believe I have seen larger tanks for the Sabaru that would be bolt ups and have the exact same fittings as the existing tank which would make for the easiest swap out.

How well is the kit handling hills and steeper grades?.................Don
