Look dude, Baum's aren't for riding, they are for taking pretty pictures of,
If the first Corretto he bought rode perfect he wouldn't be replacing his already after only a year, now would he?
Where is your EPS hardware, is it inside the stem? How can you adjust or see the status lights?
Baum is lucky to have you to finance their show bikes.
Sour grapes hey? The first Corretto I bought is perfect, the second on I bought was a track bike and is perfect, the 3rd one I bought was for my dad - he loves it, the 4th one I wanted Super Record EPS and didn't want to chop up my old one for it... It's nice to piggyback off a show for them as I really appreciate the level of quality and detail Darren and the team go to and know the difficulty in funding a bike of this level in house for a show. Plus I like other people to enjoy them in person as much as I do.
EPS hardware is there... status light is viewable from the secret hidey hole - you adjust EPS via the levers, not the DPI unit.
The rest will be internal very soon. The people we were using for the internal battery came up quite a bit short on what we were hoping to achieve appearance wise, so it is currently back at the drawing board but not too far away from a solution I am told.
I pick it up next week, so I am keen to take it for a thrash that week. I'll post some pics and let you know how it goes!
The Baum threads get locked on here because all the nuff nuffs come out of the woodwork to talk about a bike that they have never laid eyes on in person let alone ridden and its disrespectful to the owner as well as Baum Cycles when most of the stuff is inaccurate or skewed to someones personal agenda.
I made my decision to ride a Baum based on the advice of a World Champion who has purchased two Baums in the last 5 years who said they are the best bikes he has ever ridden. For his there was no pictures for him from a studio photo shoot, no shiny paint job, no Lightweights, but its still his favorite bike ever...
My collection of bikes is not limited to Baum, I have some others as well. Nothing I have owned or currently own ride close to the comfort and quality of my Baums.
