    It was actually designed that way. I had all these numbers in my head and just had to get them out! Here is a full explanation of what I wanted and why. It definitely wasn't just to be different. http://gardenandtractor.blogspot.com...7/96fitty.html

    Aki put the new Coconino to the test for about a week after he built it up @ the Coconino Cycles Compound. I got to ride the bike around for a bit and it rode well, the 29'er/650 B combo felt spot on,,,,,,,,,,,Aki loved how the bike performed at 7000+ feet and I'm sure he'll be out on the trails near Osaka this weekend on his local trails

    Thank you very much, Steve. I already took some "park lot ride" for my winter combo ( = speedway snow rim/ Endomorph) and felt like Honda moto XR, but not real trail ride yet cos it is still hot (90F) and humid (that why I escape from here every summer) at "sea level town" at this moment.

    This pix is recent my flag ride (thanks a lot for my good friend, Unagione) I think The ESB (extra stout badass = Stout/ Gordo combo) will perfect match to most of my local trail as well
