    Had to get busy with some other bother this weekend, unfortunately. Posted some photos in the gallery just now. SYSMIC S3 in gallery Might take more pictures, of folding and dissasembly. Still waiting for the superlight barrows.

    hehe, thanks Joel - but no, not yet. Finally got the axles and wheels ... today! Still missing 1 set of wheels, the "Zero Gravity" barrows - but thats the local transporter messing about, they are close and I'll get them tomorrow probably. The Midi XL's on the alu rims (4"w front and 8"w rear) looks great, the fibreglass rear axle looks solid, and the pegs are solid. Was in a hurry, had to just chuck them quickly into the warehouse at work - didn't have time for assembly or photos. But there will be a report with pics and comments coming soon. The biggest issue is the fact that I cannot ride the wonderbuggy for a while - freezing cold in Norway for atleast month, more like 2. It might even be well into April before the snow goes. Maybe I will get my colleagues to push me around @ work, while I enjoy a meal and some beers 😁

    I'll surely do that, when I get axles and wheels. If you take it all apart, it fits nicely into a bag, considering wheels ofc. The frame feels very well made, sadly I wont get to ride it for months, probably - we got snow now, and freezing temperatures for weeks ahead.

    yeah-well, not under the tree after all. But half a buggy arrived express just the other day, from China even(!). Also e-mailed with Chris, wheels, pegs and backaxle is on the way soon. It all fit together nicely, just slightly excessive long straps... 😄

    'nother update -> There will be a buggy under the tree this year! That's for beeing a good kid I guess, now with the Covid and all 😉. Sent an email today, and Chris replied that status is packing and hopefully sending next week. No rush for me, as the buggy season starts in March or so. Unless winter never comes ...? Maybe I''l be buggying in +2 to zero degrees celsius in January ... if it's dry weather... only a sad few hours of daylight, too ..

    Just got an update on the S3 from Chris this weekend, there's gonna be 1 month(ish) delay because of a new model seat (some changes for the better, he assures), and the makers of these things are quite busy, as it goes. So, my sliver of hope for a last buggy ride before the winter hits Oslo seems very thin now - these last weeks has been very mild so I had my hopes up... Ah, well - that'll just make it more of a christmas present, then.

    I am the same situation, tried to get ahold of an S3 1 year ago. Got put on hold 'cause of supply difficulties and e-mailed Chris maybe 2 times more only to get an order in for now oct/nov shipping. You and me both. I've kinda waited 1 year already. But, now - I can't wait !! Bag's are not in stock, but I'd love to get one. Or 2 in different sizes. Chris says they might be back though 🙂 Please keep the rest of us informed if you figure modifications other ppl can benefit from also. I've ordered mine w/2 sets of wheels: 3x lightweight 'Zero gravity' rims on barrows (good for travel, and lw setup for performance) + 3x midiXL's on 8" wide rims for the rear and 4" for the front (good for comfort, traction and high speed, also ground clearance and terrain/soft ground). Absolutely can't wait 😉. Too bad this years buggy season is all but over, and travel is suspended for the foreseeable.

  11. Oh yeah! Go for it !! I put a FS Infinty 2 bar on Peak1 6m, and it really benefitted from getting a better bar. Almost like it changed into a Peak #1,5 - better control trough turns, bigger range and, [gasp] trim adjustment OTF !. I even imagined the kite lost some of its worst flutter noise when depowering. And best; you lose the 'bar-bite' that makes it very hard to turn and use depower on a Infinty 1.0. Definately a great upgrade, 50 cm is probably useful for the 6m and 9m both - YMMV. *Edit; Ah, and think about the fact that the race bar comes with thinner lines. Better performance(?) but less strenght (?)...
  12. Cool if you found something interesting! I mostly posted this because of the hilarious text in the first post, cut out from the advert for those tyres with snakeskin deco'd sidewalls. Thought it'd be something for you aussies to chew on... Cooler than whitesides?
  13. Make a striking impact, as the days of black tires come to a screeching halt. Every specialized design ignites a thrilling wave of identity. Every color roars with vivid moonlit glare. Enter the new territory of renegade rubber. It is time to fire up your image, and burn it straight into your tires. http://www.classic-cycle.de/en/Tires-Tubes-Parts/Tires/20-inch/SweetskinZ-20x2-125-Rattleback-Freestyle-Dirt.html Something for igeighty to barbeque up for your next meet? Some interesting rims and tyres on the site, BTW. 20" rims upto 132mm wide !!
  14. My humble thanks everyone, good input from good ppl. I am drawn towards the V-Max II, thinking it's more of my intended ride style. Hopefully it still turns tight. I've been getting more time now on my friends Bigfoot, really getting the hang of it I feel. Need to fly the kite with the steering wheel (lotsa steering in our shifty winds) aswell as with bar and lines. I would have to undo the rear axle of the V-Max each time for transport. But atleast you guys warned me, so I am prepared for the extra hassle. I am gonna look into different wheels probably not this season, but next maybe. Can't compare with that lovely 313 anyway... He since colored whitesides on all 3 wheels. Mudguard is from toilet seat lid. 313 numberplate also on the rear - this buggy reminds us so of Donald Duck's famous ride. :-D
