In February of 2010 I took delivery of my new Globe Live 3 to replace the home built commuter I had been riding. We are just leaving the grips of winter here in Wisconsin but the 100 miles or so I have put on the bike confirm that it is a good choice for my purposes and well optioned as built.
The bicycle is factory equipped with an Alfine 8-Speed Internal Hub, Carbon Belt Drive, Full Fenders, a large Front Rack and a Belt Guard as well as Tektro Hydraulic Disk Brakes. To ensure a comfy ride I replaced the narrow factory seat with a Brooks B67 Saddle and also included the Brooks Leather Grips. For small personal items I have added a large Acorn Seat Bag. For safety I have mounted a Cannondale Tail Lamp and Blaze 2-Watt Front Lamp in addition to the AXA Defender Frame Lock.
