New 700 at Bent Up Cycles

I dropped off my old 700 at Bent Up Cycles today. By tomorrow it will be my "new" 700 with reconfigured frame and 20" wheels. Stay tuned for more details.


Dana Lieberman, owner of Bent Up Cycles, holds up the new 700.






Dana wastes no time and gets started on transferring components from the old 700 (on the right) to the new 700.

  1. I'm very pleased to see the transition from thinking of selling your 700 to getting an upgrade.

    That being said, if you aren't using the old frame anymore, I'm sure I can figure out how to put it to good use... :D

    1. Hi Charles, I'll have to put you down as number three on the list. Soon I'll have pictures and a list of what's left on the old frame. Basically it'll be frame, seat and 16" wheels.

  2. Very cool and congrats! I love the 700 although if I was in the market for a performance trike I'd have a hard time choosing between one like your's and the Ice Vortex. Interested to hear how the 20" wheels will change the ride for you.

    1. I'm interested as well. I'll be testing it out on a hill that has little traffic, no signals and requires no braking. I always max out at just over 44 miles an hour before leveling out. There's no snow here like in your end of the country so I'm good to go just about any time.
