My new Aventon arrived Thursday 4/17/2014. Overall I am pretty stoked on the whole deal. It came with riser bars and bullhorns, so I set it up with the bullies and some bar tape the color of tennis balls. It was a bit late when I got home, so after assembly I was only able to take it for a short ride up my street. My street is a huge hill. I had thought that since it was geared taller than my current fixed gear, that I’d have trouble on the hill, but I made it to the top easier than I though. I think that I’m going to benefit from having more momentum from turning the larger gear.
I haven’t properly given it a name yet, but the matte black def reminds me of the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird and the Northrop Grumman Stealth Bomber. Before a name sticks I’ve gotta put some miles on it.
