DetailsWe have updated the Visc SL9 to have a 349 iso (up from 305 iso) rear wheel. This dramatically improves the bike and makes it really the ultimate urban and business traveling accessory. We did this change because the standard 305 wheel, when used by many taller riders, had the center of balance too far back over the rear wheel. This made the bike prone to popping wheelies on hills, but generally just made the bike uncomfortable. Changing the rear wheel made the bike much more stable, and also made it faster, as the wheel is part of the gearing, and more ground is covered with every revolution of the wheel. The SL still packs into most standard suitcases, and you can do this without removing the rear wheel, and in some suitcases, also without removing the front wheel. With it you can visit the world's great places and get around with comfort and style when you arrive. Outfitted with fast matching Primo Comet tires on the 16" 305 /349platform, plus the wonderful Capreo Derailleur gear set and rear hub. The Visc SL9 349 rides well and is remarkably easy to travel and multiply your rides.
