That’s near enough - I was wanting a big wheel kickbike with the capacity for tyres suitable for forest tracks. I wa tempted by the MiBo GS but thought it was a bit heavy. So this is a Kickbike Race Max 28 frame with carbon cycle cross forks, clearance for 700x40C tyres front and back. Much of it came from parts liberated from the bits box.

Trying to find forums for adult scooters in the UK is hard going, so I've just created a new forum for anyone interested in them.

Very good, you could get it mentioned on other cycling fora too, maybe in the US, the biggest English-speaking country

I have a link posted on the Human Powered Forum too, & have just had 2 new members join, one of which informs me that there is a Facebook group of about 400 - that is so reassuring to know that they are becoming reasonably popular over here now. :D

(Also put a link on the Reddit scooter forum.)

Just managed to get logged back in to the forum, (no idea why I couldn't before, tried several times), so thought I'd give an update.

Been out several times on my KB Cross Fix, getting to know some of the Army land behind where I live, finding nicer ways to get into the countryside, (rather than using a main road).

So hopefully when I've got my stamina back, (after the Covid lock down inactivity), I'll start to get some miles in.

I'm designating it 'Boot & Scoot' - I prefer to wear my walking boots when out & about, they are especially handy when it comes to puddles & mucky ground, which we've had a lot of just lately. :)

Kickbike Cruise MAX => Tourer

Kickbike Cross Fix => Off Road

Kickbike G4 City => Commuter

Which leaves the original Swifty Zero => Fun
