    Hi Robert,
    I’ve started a small group of skatebikers in Calgary too! (except all of my bikes are old restorations). Been riding mine for 25 years now.

    If you’re looking for a comfortable seat, try the Kris Holm street saddle. It’s a bit pricey, but it’s super comfortable for long haul rides. I’ve done a few ~15 mile rides on mine. Wide longboard trucks help a ton too.

    Hi Rich,
    Funny coincidence! I’m currently finishing up a Le Run rebuild too. I think one of my bikes came with a manual – I can dig it up and send some photos if you’d like them for your site.

    Hi Rich,

    Photos of the bikes and the manual have been uploaded here:

    Unfortunately, one of the bikes is currently unusable – the spindle on the bottom bracket has worn down so the crank is wobbly. I haven’t been able to find a suitable replacement yet, so I’ve turned that bike into parts donor. It’s been a fun project though.

    Rich Helms,
    I have designed a skate bike and I have a new name (SWCykles aka: Skate Wheel Cykles) I consider myself a pro with 3yrs. I love my skate wheel cykle that my vision is to form an extreme team of fearless riders. This is necessary so that people see how the cykles are supposed to be mastered for serious fun! Email me and ill send you some pictures and video of how i ride my SWCykle.
