Been an owner for a few months now and have the sort of awkward learning phase out the way. You know over leaning everywhere, annihlation of the supplied pedals because you are learning the economics and limits of cornering and balancing in general, even though I have skateboarded and used commuter scooters. This was still a new piece of kit to get my body and head round. In this time I have looked on pimp my Halfbike, got inspired and decided what I needed do to customise it to suit me.
What you can't see:
ControlTech Terminator handle ends. The Amazon reviews I missed where correct. These can be right royal pain in the arse to fit if they do not want to grip the inside of the tube you are extending. What was meant to be a 15 minute up grade turned into an hour of four letter words and fraustration. I had to go back to the drawing board and use the modifcation one of the Amazon reviewers left in the review. Which was dremel a very basic knerling pattern onto the outer end screw surface it give some traction for the thread to do its job against of widening the other sections. When you 6mm Allen bolt tried to apply the screwing motion. So the second attempt was what I had in mind. So far so good.
Stuff you can see:
Ergon GP5's. Looked at the GP 4's that others have used but plumped for the Large, Standard fitting 5's. Really nice and supportive hand and wrist positions. For people who may or may not have broken their scaphoid in their lives, (especially handy pieces of kit now the terminators work properly. Can't tell you how much this messed with setting up the handle bar grips).
DA Bomb, Double Cross MTB pedals. I have planter faciitis and spent ages trying to find longer than wider pedals. I went for the biggest surface pedal I find that was good. To be able to cover and support most of the arch of my foot. The Catalyst Evo's were the other ones I liked but can't get them over my side of the Atlantic.
80's BMX inspired mud guard mod. Saw a few mods and had read what other thought about their mods. So made a neoprene slightly tappered extension piece so it fitted between the frame but gave a bit more protection from the puddles.
Van Boot bike stand mod, to hold the Halfbike while in transit. All the parts I used can be found at DIY/Hardware or a bicycle stores. Or if you are clever scrounged. One car/van boot tray, Two door kick plates, One rivet gun, One triangle wall mounted bike stand, four flat quick release boot catches, Cable C clips and an assortment of screws, bolts, nuts, rivets and a general tool box of goodies. Bobs your uncle and you are there. I do have a more detailed photo guide for anyone who asks about the bike stand. Pics attached. Will try and suss how to put more pics up in one go. Peace
