Lightning riders

Michael Kapala


That’s my bike, and it rides like a dream. I still love my steel-framed Lightning Thunderbolt, but this R-84 takes cycling comfort, speed, and sheer joy to a whole new level.

Want to carry a cool Camelbak Podium Chill water bottle on your Lightning bike? It’s a bit too “fat” for a standard bottle cage, but works great with a Lezyne Flow side-loading cage (right-side loading configuration). The cage keeps a good firm grip on the bottle, but allows it to slip in and out easily (front-loading) while riding.
