Hello all, I've been off the forums for some time since crashing my 04 Speed a few years back due to an impaired driver. I've been wanting a 700 ever since it came out. Absolutely love its looks etc. but it isn't practical for me. I love the way my Speed handled in turns, less flex etc. and can't see myself giving up that go-cartk like feeling unless I have to. I also live in Newfoundland, Canada and there are a lot of hills/mountains so climbing ability is well up there. I also have a Schlumpf HSD that I can swap from my 04 to the new model. I would think that if I were to purchase a 700 I would probably require a Schlumpf Mountain Drive for it. So I'm seriously considering another Speed.
Question: Has Catrike fixed the problem regarding the frame diging into the back/shoulder area? I don't remember reading about this problem with older models.
I'm also looking for suggestions regarding what colour to get. I'm not kicked up on yellow but thinking of either Bangal or Sparkle orange. Part of my reasoning is having something that'll hopefully catch the attention of drivers.
While lurking the forum last night I read that the Speed will be discontinued very shortly. So it looks as though I have to place an order very shortly. Thank you in advance for your help.
