Congratulations! I hope you are enjoying your Sport Elite. I'm supposed to get mine tomorrow and can't wait!

I like the color of yours. I did consider getting the brass but was afraid it might be too yellow. Yours looks like a beautiful shade and definitely not too yellow! :)

Went for a 22 mile ride today; got it over 30 mph on one of the downhills and the sense of speed was about the same as when I got my LWB recumbent up to 45! It handled just fine though. One thing I noticed when I was setting up/checking everything, was that the speedometer setting was 1615mm. I did a rollout check and reset it to 1555; I realize it's only a 4% difference but I like accuracy.

Stock CST tires on my Rover measured 1550 on a rollout test, which is the most accurate. I think the instructions on the Planet Bike computer I got, said 1500 for a 20" wheel. Always better to do a rollout measurement, all tires are different. I love that Brass color...... :)
