Re: Come on all you KUWAHARA guys

I've got two on the wrokbench, a Laserlite and an Exhibitionist - should both be ready by mid-Feb latest! Meanwhile, the cruiser is done, except for installation of OS tires...keeping the new Tiogas on to ride her a bit, but it's friggin' 20 degrees out...

I have a second 24" Kuwi frame/fork in white too, but plan to sell.

I love it actually. And really that's saying a lot. I was holding on to the mid school for far too long. It rides like a dream, a ton of room given the 21" top tube. I have zero complaints about that ride.

Out of the box there was an issue with a front wheel bearing, however I sent it back and they corrected it. It's seen only 3 or 4 sessions this year at Rays MTB and is holding up just fine.

Very cool. I'm thinking about buying a new school Kuwi, and the Bravo's the one I've been eyeballing.
