A new steed has joined my stable “THE CATBIKE MUSASHI”. This will hopefully be my new double century bike and it will replace the Catrike 700 which I will be putting up for sale soon.
The New Steed:
I have already upgraded the pedals to some very nice matching Candy 2’s.
I also upgraded the handlebars to some Bacchetta items as I found these to be much more comfortable.
Zach Kaplan and myself simply could not get the supplied front brake to work so we swapped it out for a Bacchetta item which works very nicely.
I went out for my first ride today. It doesn’t feel as quick as my my Corsa but it is nice and stable and handles the bumps very well. I need to get a lot more rides in before I can form any real opinions but it is certainly fast down hill. All is not well in the Musashi camp though. When I use the big ring the chain tube rattles like mad which is very annoying and something I have to fix.
