I reduced the handlebar. This handlebar had a length of 640 mm. Although there is no problem in the United States, in Japan to 600 mm that it can go in to a sidewalk.If the indicator of a gear puts until it touches a handle, as for about 20mm+α of one side. Since it was aluminum, I cut off simply by the grinder. But it is still broad. (^^;)
The tire "KENDA KWICK TRAX, 700X32c" is attached to Quick 4 as standard. This is slightly weak. That it is weak has weak appeal. It does not clarify.A run sound called Quuu is always sounding small. Then, it changed. This tire is a DETONATOR foldable of MAXXIS, 700x28c.Since a bead is Kevlar, it can fold and is light! It is thin, and since it is light, pedaling is light. Especially the beginning is easy.
Then, although I almost looked at the neighboring bicycle shop, it is only R3, Air, and RX3 that every store is in stock by Escape of Giant. The fork of carbon is needed. While being in this way so, I met with the bicycle of the photograph. It is "Cannondale Quick 4". Although this bicycle has the fork of carbon and a difference is not known with a photograph, a calm degree of comfort carries out owing to the long riser handle and the long wheel base.This bicycle is planned in the United States and is a comfortable bicycle which Americans consider. This completely differed from the European type.
I rode on this. If the top tube which looks thin with this photograph from side is seen, but from a top, it is wide and strong. Since the fork is also aluminum, a degree of comfort was also very hard. Instead, a satisfactory line can be saved even if it leans in a curve.It was my impression which is referred to as being an object for short distance although it can run invigoratingly.
However, it was the reply that there was no RX2. ”Oh, what is necessary is just being able to order” I said. "Now, the search system of Giant is being downed and maker stock cannot be checked"Really? is the thought at that time. The world's largest bicycle maker's search system will down ? "I will check tomorrow and will telephone. But I think that there is no RX2 now. Can you come and ride?" This bicycle picture is "Escape RX3" and test-ridden.It is 2013 models of two years ago and that were very popular. This model came out in 2012 was changed greatly, and it became the present style mostly. And since Japanese Yen was high, we were able to buy it with the very reasonable price.
It's said the company the "giant" of Taiwan that the half of the bicycle in the world is made. It can be said that the width of selection is wide. This is a model "escape RX3." A front fork is carbon although it is as cheap as US$717. Since the suspension attached "Ordina E3", having got over of the level difference was very easy. I would like to use a carbon fork, for shifting to a rigid fork. I decided to go to a nearby giant special agent to see bicycles.
The "Bridgestonen Ordina E3" which appeared repeatedly at this blog. I rode for two years. Then,I wished to make a vehicle type change for long distances.On this bicycle, as for an effect, it is to change tire width from 700x40c to 35c thin, and a pedal came to run comfortably. What does not have a high gear beyond it although remaining power is still in strength of my legs by a top gear is the point which became less unsatisfactory. It could ride with the easy posture, and it carried out with this, there was no big trouble, and it was a good bicycle. (^o^)
【 SONY α-900 】 ‐世界最強の長焦点レンズと言えばカールツァイスのプラナー85mm/F1.4なんですが、今、これを一番便利に使うならばα900が最右翼。AFが効きます。フルサイズフォーマットですから玉の強さに負けないハコはこれしかありません。SONYの態勢に不安がないわけではなく、彼らはピュアな光学ファインダーを捨てる見込みです。この100％ファインダーは超優秀なファインダーなのですが後継機では続かないというアナウンスが既に出ているのです。それが解ったとたん900の市場価格が上がりました。日本のコンシューマーは馬鹿ではないようです(^^)。本当に900のファインダーは捨てるには惜しいです。こう思うのは年を取ったからなのか。若い人たちはそう感じないのか？後継機が出ると、その答えも出ることになるでしょう。。。
