 :152: Where about are you?? Our Necastle dealer has been tops with all aspects to date. They gave me their demo for a few hours... that's the one I have owned for a few years now.

On the foot of some nice roads. Lots of us have been happy with the CT...however weight keeps cropping up as an issue for the slightly verticall challenged.(sorry) You can get the seat lowered, loads of guys have done it. If you want buttons and technology stuff and electrikery, look elsewhere...the CT doesnt offer that. If your'e looking for a bike that does what it says on the tin and does it well without all the electronic gadgetry, the CT could be for you. Try it, test it, give it a good go, you might just be pleasantly surprised....

The fact that you can strap crap to the top of it is awesome. I have the givi trekker outback or something, very practical, not really made to strap goodies to top of it....also there is brackets for the outback for the rear/side of the panniers for extra fuel or water bottle's and so on....I really like them a lot... and proper lashing points on the lids..
