Custom Bike - 6~8 weeks
Bike Repair - 1 week
I have really come to appreciate the genius of this bike's design. Since purchasing it last September I have disassembled and packed it twice, unpacked and reassembled 3 times. I can do both in about a hour now. None of my pre-purchase fears about my own lack of mechanical expertise have come to pass. I am especially pleased that shifting is flawless after re-assembly with no special skill required on my part. This would be a great touring bike even if it didn't break down for free shipment on an airplane, but saving the airlines' ransom makes it peerless. Great job!
