Been toying around with the midge dirt drops and finally set em up on my rigid SS 29er! Did a 12 mile urban trail ride yesterday through some rogue highway trails in my city. It did everything I had hoped it would. 32-18 gearing made me nervous but I was able to muscle through. It was nice to have that extra top end for road connectors to different trail heads. Outfitted it with bb7's and a brooks saddle and hope to start using it for a 24mile daily commute once I get some more j.paks! (Joe is the man!)
Now for the bike...
Ridicule if you like - the frame is actually a mongoose deception frame that my buddy had in a scrap pile at the lbs. it was free so what the hell. Aside from wheels i had a full bike sitting in a box at home. I built it up with flat bars and road the hell out of it. Once I realized the frame really isn't that bad, or bad lookin (aside from kickstand yoke) I decided to convert it into this beastly commuter/trail bike. I have 8sp Barcons i will throw on for some touring in the coming months.
Hope y'all dig it!
