Bought a Globe last year. I have made many changes to it. First I took off the fenders and the Cargo basket on the front of the bike. Then I added lights all around, reflectors on the spokes and top tube. Next I gave her better hand grips, a speedo, SPD clipped pedals and a racing seat from Specialized. Finally a rear rack, lock and bottle holder. The Nexus 8 speed is awesome along with the 2 pronged Swiss kickstand. Now I am ready to go anywhere.
