Bonktown had the Del Norte on sale for a pretty decent price recently, $370 plus shipping. I had been looking at replacing my old Nishiki because it's just too big and uncomfortable, even for the short rides to the subway and errands. I was going to order a Windsor TimeLine from bikes direct, but decided the Swobo was closer to what I wanted.
Swobo has a funny box. It was sitting in my house since Thursday afternoon before I put it together on Saturday. I didn't even open the box until I knew I had time to put it together. The only changes I'll make are adding fenders and I may need to level the saddle. My spin around the neighborhood makes me think it will be a good fit for what I want, but I'm going to have to get it dirty ASAP so I feel better about locking it at the subway. It looks too new right now!
- One part of the box
- The complete bike
- The bike being replaced (going to my dad if he wants it, a swap meet if not)
By the way, Bonktown has had both the Swobo Del Norte and the Swobo Sanchez listed at least once or twice since I made this purchase. Both get listed for $370.
