    I'm rolling a 2.2 tire but it was rubbing on my first ride tonight. So I'm going to put my small block 8 back on.

    Not sure on what to do about the headtube. My LBS thinks I should take the spacers out and roll with a riser bar. Not sure thats the route I want to take. I love my salsa flat bars, I got them on all my bikes.

    Give risers an audition-you may dig it. I have risers on all of my bikes now and for me in the long run it was a great move comfort and control wise.

    Awesome rig BTW.

    The guys at Biowheels were right, I lowered the stem and put a straight seatpost on. The bike handles better everytime I ride it. Now I need to get a riser bar and it should be dialed in just right.

    Here are some pics of the bike in the woods. Bike's getting alot of use. We are having a really nice fall and early winter here in Ohio. The winter bike will keep hanging until the weather turns nasty.
