i think this might be a fun bike to just run flat pedals on and grab for casual, unplanned adventuring.

cool stuff.

I know it was designed for the flat bar set up, but don’t see why a drop bar wouldn’t work?

It is currently wearing flat pedals and I spent the morning blasting around up north on dirt, gravel and busted up pavement! I am going to throw some frogs on it and see which I prefer, but the bike is extremely fun and capable.

Hey there. I recognize that crankset and bottle cages. They look fantastic, I am glad they are going to good use. Have fun that bike does look like a fun zipping around the woods on.
Have a Great Day.

Yes, I decided to try them out on this instead of the Moots! So far so good!

Thanks and the routes are in my head as I don’t use Strava or anything else, but I would be happy to share them with you or even show you around up here. Plenty of great roads both paved and unpaved. I am in Fulton County pretty much right in the middle of the state.

That looks like a machine we would all enjoy, but none of us have. There is no better pleasure than to grab a bicycle at any moment we fancy, while wearing casual clothing or kitted-up, and with no agenda other than to enjoy leveraging our body forward. This machine has that soul.
