Re: My impressions after 1st long ride
I have the levers on the left HB reversed from your set-up. The brake is on top so if I need to grab a handfull of the front rim it's the first thing my fingers grab.
Gravel sucks no matter what, it puts my butt and hands to sleep and a mirror should be mandatory.
I take mine out for 10-15 mile jaunts on mixed roads. About 15 MPH is about it on gravel and full-tilt boogie on pavement of around 28 MPH.
