Takara Kabuto Bike Review
We tried and tested the Takara single speed bike for three days in the mountain area near to office area. The place is perfect for trail and cycling. The bike was impressive of course, but there was some glitch also that we realize during our whole experience. What to what they are? Keep reading.
Sturdy & Solid Body For Great Performances:
The Takara Kabuto is made of steel alloy. It comes with two frame size, 54 and 57 cm. The entire tubular steel frame and forks make it real weight. But to support the matter, most of the part of this single speed bike is constructed with powerful but light alloy resources.
And make the weld extra strong they use tig welding. It’s one of the better welding systems to join the parts and makes the joining durable.
More Speed & Stability:
The bike can speed up more than 30 km/hr. With the increasing rate, the bike is best for proving the proper stability in hard places. The wheels and rims are a significant part of the bike. These can deliver the max speed and firmness that every biker wants. The Takara Kabuto has got light alloy hub and features 32 spokes.
Moreover, the broad yellow tires added more color accent and style which looks beautiful. You can go for either green color tires with a green body, blue color tires for the green body. If you like simple color tires, choose black tires with a blue frame.
Most Convenient Setup:
First of all, the bike comes with all the necessary parts that you need to assemble. The installation process is relatively easy even if you are a beginner. There is an instruction guide available inside the box. So you will know what to attach one after another.
Yes, you must require some tool for the setup. Like, an Allen key set, a couple of sockets and an adjustable crescent wrench, etc. nothing much. These are needed to keeps the screws tight and secure in place. If you have some experience with fixing or installing bike you can do that.
If not, call for an expert or your local shop for help. And other more things, during the setup, check the seat height, again and again, to find the most comfortable position according to your height.
That one thing we all were curious about after speed is how the brake is worked. Well, Takara did not disappoint us. The alloy side pulling brakes are very functional and steady.
So when you need to stop it stopped. Even in its topmost speed. Also, when you need to slow the speed, the brake is equality responsive according to given pressure on the clutch.
But yes, in the beginning, the brake was bit soft. After a few adjustments, it becomes that solid what we needed.
The Construction Of The Seat & Kickstand:
The seat and seat padding of this single speed bicycle is compact and thin. The filling could be a little thick and comfortable. It’s pretty basic, so we were not that impressed by that.
But that does not mean it’s the worst seat for long way travel. The seat is sturdy and could hold up the body weight accurately. If you are not too heavy like 90+ kg, then the seat will not be a problem.
Now the kickstand. The kickstand is solid and made with strength and flexibility. So when you need you can brake and kick the stand to park the bike.
Or when you are in a rush kick it and hop on the cycle. Nothing complicated. Just make sure to use to some oil in the joint of the kickstand. Oiling the cycle’s joints time to time is mandatory.
That will prevent friction and remain the performance best always.
