After putting a whopping 200 miles on the candy blue 700, I’ve decided to let my brother, Jon, adopt it. This will replace Jon’s black 2009(?) 9 speed 700. He rode it today and remarked how much faster it seems. Maybe it’s the 406 front wheels or the Ultremo tires or that it’s significantly lighter than his old 700 or the combination of all of these factors. It’s a fine trike, but I just seemed to chose the Vortex to ride instead.
