    How did the Torpedo 2 speed conversion end up working? Are they very heavy?

      Works a treat, they can be temperamental at times. Luckily Dustin got it dialed and running sweet as a freewheel. Big Frank is big, ramps the bike pretty regular, and we have a couple of people running them with no issues!

    What kind of flat shifters did you use with the Gobbo Build Up? Which model/year is the rear derailleur? I’m stuck with a bunch of veloce nine speed parts and flat bar bike. At the moment it has a veloce hubs, 9-speed cassette and no way of changing gears.

      Just an old Shimano ratcheting shifter on this build, no idea on the year of the derailleur, although I have not seem too many black Campagnolo groupsets… so it might be searching google to see about that.

    I need a recumbent due to back issues. Are you planning to? used to know sun rider recumbenrt, the model ”a easy rider ‘ all the bell &’whistles, seat was oversized for comforlt, simano gears , ATP and dual disc brakes . Completely convertible, with or without the wind fairer . Grocery basket in behind seat big enough to carry up to. 65 lb dog.

    What do you think about this bike? Look up Sun Rider, Easy-rider.

      Seems pretty sweet, I don’t much about recumbent bikes, the best place I can think of for sound advice and expertise would be Cambie Cycles.
