    Update: or, Mary Wily...

    So here's a few changes since the last pics I put up- WTB ExiWolf up front, Kenda Klaw in the back. I had 2 of the bad batch of Nanos on here, and they've both crapped out. WTB made it up to me by replacing 'em with the Exi. On-One Mary handlebar.
    How do I like the changes?
    The ExiWolf is an awesome tire for me. I run it usually around 20-22 psi, and it definitely takes the edge off of the rocks. Tracks great, handles dry rocky and rooty stuff with aplomb, floats well in sand and mud, I love it. Haven't noticed the weight while riding.
    Mary? Oh, I just love Mary! This is a stellar handlebar. MeanTodd got it to me, and I haven't gotten the time on it that I'd like, but so far I think it's the bee's knees. Confidence on the steepest of drop-ins, very easy to unweight or lift the front wheel, better wrist position for the slams.
    However, I don't recommend them for everyone. Only those who like to ride their bikes. Off-road. Or on, for that matter.

    Nice...

    I love that saddle. Makes me wonder what it would feel like smoothly sliding over my spandex covered...

    ahh, but I digress......

    Where can I get a LiveWrong bracelet?

    Love the bike los. Now that I've started riding fixed off road I've really been thinking a 29er would be a benefit. I'm trying to decide if I should save my pennies for a Chester or a Wiley. Your Wiley is absolutely amazing. Since I don't have may pennies saved yet I've got time to decide.

    UMM... what's with the brake lever cable direction?
    Is that just for style?

    I'm all about the style!
    Actually, I got the hose for free, but it was too long. Since I knew I wanted to get these bars eventually, I figured that I could just do some creative routing. It's still technically too long, but it's sort of remeniscent of non-aero brake cable routing on road bikes, back in my younger days!

    Mia got Marys

    I just put Marys on the Mia today, I have not had the girls out far a spin yet. I hope I like them as much as you do. My first impression is that they seem narrow compared to the Jones bars on my 29r. I'll have to ride them and then see how they feel.

    So, how is she riding. I am totally digging my Wily. It rides so smooth!

    If that was the case, I guess the Jones would feel wide compared to most riser bars, which is what the relative hand position on the Mary's was modelled on.
