    Tires?

    What kind of Geax are you running on that machine? Looks awesome.

    Nice SPOT!!

    Nice bike you got there. Have you considered saving the fork and slapping a riser bar on there to raise things up a bit? It would be cheaper than buying a new fork. Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy the new bike, it's sweet.

    Those are 2.25 Blades. Sweet tires, great traction in mud and loose conditions, plenty of cush to them too. Not had a chance to try them in the dry on account of living up here in the wet corner of the country

    PS - sxconway, that's a cool looking ride, seems like you might want to try some riser bars ? Get a bit more height and some width for when you're cranking up those hills...

    tires and bars

    they are geax blade cheapo tires o got on ebay for 15.00 run them tubless by taping up the rims and throwing some liquid latex jizz in with them. i used geax sedonas before and loved them these are less wide then the sedonas but a little taller. i am due for a fork anyway. the frame is built around a 80mm not a 63mm and the reason i dont use risers i because i like the bar ends for climbing. i cant wait to give it a real workout when the ice melts.

    thanks

    I like the Black,very stealthy.(I agree,lose the fork)
    I've been inside too long.
