Boom , I am interested in hearing more about the bike when you can . On first
looks alone i would love to build up this frame set with a "shore xc " build
and maybe second set of lightweight wheels for big rides away from here
Like I said , "shore" blinders on . Basically on my old Satori's ( yes I had
two) I shreded my Ardents , and my Schwalbe options . I built a wider rim set
(flow ex) My call for the 35mm stem bar combo is for the stiffer , potentially
lighter options . Once you have the wider bar on there . There is a lot of
torsion pushing that larger wheel around on the trail. And I am buying into
the 35mm on my Knolly now. (I have been running a 70mm NSB overloard stem with
a RF sixc carbon bar. The new 35mm sixc and havoc stem in 65mm felt stiffer to
Oe tires.. agreed most are changed out right away . Nit picking.
A low rise bar would help to shorten the front end . but i havent gone back to
flat bars since 1998 …
The look and style would have me asking her out on a date or two , despite her
To be fair with my comments on displacing water . I made the statement with my
"shore" blinders on . The spec of this beauty would most likely be fantastic
for 2/3 s of the rest of the world .
But the tires , rims and stem, handle bar and brakes just dont hit home in
what i would be looking for . Solid , good looking on the shop floor . But
depending on the price point may be costly to have the goods i am looking for
I just assumed that most new trail bikes would come speced with a 35mm carbon
control center. a slightly wider rim set and . I am just flat out am biased
against sram brakes due to past experiences . I really hope to have some
experiences going forward that will change my mind.
I still love her………. just no crackers in bed please
WTF is that ? The bottom five lace ferrels look like they will last less than
five rides. .
the first pic is of the sole and had me interested . Boom paper bag off the
head ! damn woman you look like my grandmothers retarded sister. »(great aunt)
. Great aunt Gertrude may last all night ….. but these shoes look like they
will last less than five hard rides
