Thanks. She loves it. The Nishiki gave the benefit of twin tubes along with English threading to make it easy :)

Yes,the twin small diameter tubes gave great strength with no weight penalty. I have had several pass thru my herd ,by several different makers. And your right,the English threading does make life easier than French.
