Congrats, did you buy from Lenny's? I noticed they have been discounting them pretty heavily.

No, I got a great price from a local dealer and now have support from them if I need anything or upgrades.

Wonderful bike highly recommended!
Excellent!

If you add these 2 or 3 things, your enjoyment of the bike will be significantly higher.
  1. A flat MTB pedal with sealed bearings: https://www.amazon.com/OneUp-Compon.../dp/B074Q41G3Y/ref=psdc_3404891_t2_B018J1J7QE

  2. A kinect seatpost for your weight and seatpost size: https://www.amazon.com/Cirrus-Cycles-Aluminum-Seatpost-Suspension/dp/B077VDPW4V?th=1&psc=1

    This seatpost will make your ride exponentially better.
    I may have an extra with me that I bought last year, happy to send you one if you need it.

FWIW, the kinekt is 25% off here with coupon. Also not a bad place to buy a saddle:

From the Gepida website, the history: "1993: Our story began in the middle of this year in Murányi street, district VII where György Berkes, aged 20, rented a store of 40 m2." By pure chance, I know the Murányi utca in Budapest very well.The District VII is the one with surviving Art Nouveau architecture (since Budapest has seen the most of development during that era).

Hi Ravi,

You basically read my mind, I'm looking to upgrade the seat and seatpost. I'll check out the pedals and send you an email on the post.

Nice photo, Stefan, we've got something in common, I attended school two blocks from Murányi utca. Many fond memories of BP.

Also to make an attempt to stay on topic, the Kinekt is worth the money.
