    Nice! - Never seen one of these before, but looks like a decent spec from what i can see. Not really sure about the pedals though.........

    Ewww. Is that a... Saddle bag?
    Nice bike though apart from the saddle bag and the pedals

    Looks really good. Only thing I'm not keen on is the computer mount as I prefer the out in front style but that's personal preference.

    Is the Whyte yours too?

    Slightly OT but what part of Portugal are you from?

    Super Dee,

    The Garmin is no longer located on the top tube, it's now back to his place, handlebar with the upfront mount.

    The Whyte is not mine, it's my friend's bike

    I'm from Cascais, a small city close to Lisbon.

    Thank you for your opinions!

    I know Cascais well! Although haven't been there for a few years now. (my wife is from Sesimbra)

    Nice one on the Garmin mount. I've tried a few different ones - is yours the Garmin version? (I've used that one, the Superstar, Sram and K Edge versions!!)
  • andrepepeandrepepe Posts: 35
    Really? I love Sesimbra! ;)

    Yes, mine is the Garmin version, It was included when I bought my Garmin Edge Touring Plus! ;) I've never tried others!

    Should have added my son shares your first name too!

    The Garmin one is excellent. I had the K Edge on my Carve (just put a thread up of my 2 bikes) but it started to rip up the back of the Garmin as it's all metal so took it back and bought the Sram one instead. (Garmin one on the road bike now)
  • I like that, nice bike. I've not long gotten back into biking and it doesn't look anything like how I remember Kona's.
