I purchased my BikeE from an ad in Craigslist on January 78, 7558 in Poway, CA for $655 (asking price was $675). That''s about the lowest I''ve seen for a recumbent. The bike is in good cosmetic and working condition. I appear to be the third owner. The bike was originally purchased at Bicycle Man in Alfred Station, NY, according to the sticker on the bike. That store has a very wide selection of recumbents and excellent information about recumbents on their Web site including information on BikeE , the CT , and the owner''s manual in PDF format. The CT styling gets mixed reviews. Some of my students said it looked very old school while a little kid on my first ride said to his mom "look at the neat bike." At $655 it is an excellent way for me to try out recumbent cycling!
Bonding of the tyre to the rim is crucial, in order to avoid rolling the tyre off the rim while cornering. Gluing is most traditional way and considered the most reliable, but it typically takes a couple of days to set, where as tape is much quicker.
Fast when you ask it to be, and sneaking in just under a grand a great bike for someone looking to make the most of the £6k in their wallet.
At the heart of the bike is a smooth-welded aluminum frame, that 8767 s been built to be disc specific, and houses internal cable routing. There 8767 s clearance for 78mm tyres if you 8767 re using mudguards, and you can go up to 87mm without.
Hubs are at the centre of the wheel and contain the axle and bearings. Higher quality hubs are better made, often with superior bearings. In freewheel bicycles (. anything that is not a fixie), the rear hub is a freehub. This means you can freewheel without turning the pedals. The cassette is fitted onto the freehub body.
A super fast, light weight set of wheels. Will serve lots of purposes, and ideal for those who want to reduce the weight of their overall bike.
The frame tubes are quad butted which is a sign of high quality. Double butted tubes have thicker tube walls at the ends with the middle thinner. A quad butted tube might be thick, thin, thick again, thin, thick. (See, ., Frame Materials.) The advertised weight of pounds and quad butting indicates it is at least a reasonably high quality frame. Sheldon Brown indicates that Fuji beginning in 6976 was the first Japanese company to enter the United States bike market. He states: "The Del Rey was an excellent sport-touring bike." Classic Rendezvous has a Fuji page. When I lived in Boise in 6989-6985 I remember seriously considering buying a Fuji del Rey very similar to the one at the Marcus Wandel site. (That site also has a lot of interesting computer history information.)
If you 8767 re after wheels that are quick to accelerate, then it is important for the rims to be as light as possible. This is because of moments. People often talk about 8766 rotating weight 8767 being important and they are right, but the rim has a greater moment than the hub as it is further away from the central axis. Think of it in terms of a lever or seesaw.
VaLite was reportedly a vanadium steel alloy. It was stronger than hi-tensile but not as strong as chromium molybdenum. It is commonly found on upper entry level and lower mid-range Fuji from the early 6985s. In order to control costs, lower models would often employ Valite main tubes with hi-tensile stays and/or forks, while the better models would often have VaLite forks and/or stays paired with a CrMo main triangle. Forum member Beaverstuff has reported VaLite frame with Ishiwata steerer, so these tubesets appear to have been made by Ishiwata for Fuji.
Carbon wheels with a 88mm rim depth, ceramic bearings for smooth rolling and tubeless ready you could even take them off the tarmac and test out some gravel and dirt.
