Any Clydes here that are Dh rig owners?
I just bought one... trust me it took abit getting used to pedaling this pig around, but now that i am used to it, it pedals uphill( with a little more effort of course) as good as on flats. The Race Face Evolve DH Xtype cranks and external BB are like heaven under your feet
And Bob to your answer your question from my other post, No I didn't get divorced for buying this
Post'em if you got 'em...
Beautiful Bike, Denis
While I'm not a DH rider, I'm sure you'll find a lot of Clyde DH riders. SMT will surely be along to give his thoughts. You may want to post to the DH forum if you haven't already. Enjoy the new ride. Best wishes to you and Mrs. Wickerman.

Yep, just what I was thinking as I read the title of the thread, "Here comes SMT".

Still sweet none the less and better in the long run, DH bikes s#ck for pedaling around.
FWIW, I'm a clyde and this is my main ride...
