(Link Removed - No Longer Exists)

Hated losing the nice color coordinated grips and seat, but these are SO much more comfortable that it's a no brainer (for me).

I ride for fitness and fun and really I have zero issue with a 20mph speed limit. I'm sure if I commuted on road with cars I might feel differently. The Stromer does 30mph with some effort (off road enabled) and it's exciting, but really too fast for the riding/areas/conditions I do. My trike is also off road speed enabled but I usually am in the same speed range as the Hai and Stromer, high teens is fast enough for me to get my speed jollies and not unsafe. :)
Getting 3-5mph above what I would be peddling on my own is really all I'm after. Lots of fun, wind in the face, but still biking. And working out. Just not as hard. ;)

You know I had in mind this exact same configuration. Full susp, Super Moto X tires, Ergon everything.... super comfy. You should name your bike 'Salma Hayek' ;) lol

Beautiful ride, MLB! Noticed the stamp on the rims -- DT Swiss spokes; you won't be seeing the spoke breakage that riders of other bikes have been experiencing.

If I thought about that much I might never get off her. ;)

I do love this bike! Never had a full suspension bike, and at 220lbs I'd never been on one that wasn't sacked out by my weight so that it did little suspending.
It's so much fun that I can't stop riding off the paved trail as much as possible, even just riding beside the paved trail. LOL
And between the nice cushy seat and the suspension, I'm up to 20 miles before I start to have discomfort. Edit- That's with padded shorts.
After 15 years mostly off upright bikes (wedgies), that's amazing to me. :)
