It’s not always the case that actors become involved in the screenplays and the characterisation of the characters, but apparently Selleck had quite the impact on the creative team when he suggested to twist his character’s James Bondish-typecast who is also incredible charming into a more average guy and probably more approachable that the audience eventually got to know and fall in love with.
Considering the abuse my hands received touching off those rounds, and the fact that I’m a lousy shot, that’s a more-than-merely-acceptable group for self-defense. Yes, well, look what happened when I let loose the .357 dogs of war, shooting the Model 360 double action, rapid fire.
Magnum didn’t skimp on the little things with this model, you get a slap guard to protect the nice paint from the chain, a larger tapered head tube for strength, and those hydraulic disc brakes with adjustable reach levers… That’s a big deal for hand fatigue and for stopping a heavier, faster electric bike. I love the Wellgo platform pedals used here because they are larger and sturdier feeling than many cage style pedals and plastic pedals, but I do wish that in addition to the chainring protector, there was a second plate on the inside of the chainring to create a guide which would reduce chain drops. I did not have an issue with chain drops on this review ride but it has happened to me many other times on other similar bikes. It can be annoying and dirty, but it’s just part of riding a bike sometimes. At least the Alloy chainring protector that you do get, will keep your pant or dress clear of the greasy chain. Magnum has done a whole heck of a lot right with the Metro and I think the price is justified. It’s nice to have help setting the bike up and then tuning it as the shifter cables stretch over time. The 8-Speed Shimano Acera drivetrain is solid (several steps up from entry level) and I appreciate the more refined trigger shifters here vs. a large oversized thumb shifter on the Ui5. At the end of the day, I might personally still get a Ui5 because I don’t weigh a lot, there aren’t a lot of hills on my commute, and I appreciate a lighter weight bike… but the hydraulic disc brakes are a big draw. For commuting purposes, I would get a trunk bag and maybe some panniers to carry my work supplies. Big thanks to Magnum and High Country Electric Bikes for partnering with me on this post and hanging out for the shoot. It’s fun to hear what a shop employee thinks about a product and introduce the team bringing it all together.

What actually ended up getting him through the doors at a dealership was when he heard about the Little Red Express and wanted to see one in person. Instead, when he walked into the dealership, he met face-to-face with the brand-new-for-1978 Magnum. David was stopped in his tracks. Here was exactly what he had been daydreaming for. “When the Magnum came out,” he told us, “it was like someone had heard me.” Here was a car that had everything he wanted: the B-Body size, muscular, squared-off body, sloping nose with aero covers on the headlights, and it could be had with a 400 under the hood.
