    Winter Ride Is Ready

    I was trying to keep the cost down and still have a decent first winter bike. All in all I did ok I think. Not to mention it was a lot of fun putting it together. Now all I need is a little snow!

    Cool-blue Rhythm disc adapter

    How is the DM-UNI Universal Disc Brake Mount Adapter For Rear Rotor working out? I am kicking around the idea of putting one on my old Klein hardtail so I will have wheels that are interchangeable with my newer bike.

    I cannot seem to find many/any reviews on teh DM-UNI.

    Thanks!

    So far so good. I had to modify it a little so that it would fit, but it wasn't by much.

    How do the 2.7 timber wolves work with the dx 32 rims? I put together the exact same setup, but we wont have snow for awhile, and im dying to find out how they work in the snow.

    So far they have handled everything I have thrown at them. I still need to play around with the tire pressure a little to adjust for different trail conditions. Right now I am running them at 20 lbs. and with the DX32 rims it gives me a nice wide footprint.

    You won’t be disappointed.

    It is by far! I tried the 2.3 and 2.5 upfront as well. None of them performed or perform as well as the 2.7. I guess that is almost a given being that the 2.7 on the DX32 gives you quiet a foot print.

    I like running the 2.7 upfront and the 2.3 in the rear. I find it gives me better control. I tried the 2.7 in the rear as well but that did not quiet work out as well for me for some reason. I found it to be a little sluggish for my likening. (If that makes any sense)
