    ... and if we just ... My refreshed Ala Carte and Specialized rigids

    Both have perfect magic gears run on Salsa rings and Surly cogs.

    The Ala Carte gets wheels (Stans Crest and Hope II Evo) and brakes (Elixer 5) upgrades. It runs 32-20 and handles trail duty.

    Spez got a baby upgrade, runs 32-18 (with half-link), and handles light trail and road.

    Must be a real pain getting your fingers under the front QR on the Salsa. Does it even close all the way, up against the fork leg like that? Those type of QR don't often play well with discs as it is... Lovely looking bike though, very "General Lee," minus the dirt.

    The flats are burning my eyes. I like your wheels though.

    The QR was temporarily on there as I took it off the rack. I love those flats so have them on all my bikes.
    They are indestructible and maintenance free. But are quite heavy - 560 or so grams.
    I may switch out for lighter platforms. The bike weighs in at 21.6 now even with the large tires and those pedals. That's plenty light for me.

    After todays ride in muddy and wet conditions, I am sold on the new tires and brakes.
