I sold the IRO for this because this did naturally what I modified the IRO to do. It's a stout frame and I love the amount of versatility it packs. Skinny, big, medium, it doesn't matter, it can do a lot! I have fun with it :) I'll probably add the rack to it later;)

I had fun making the mudflaps. I don't like water bottle holders on the frame when riding fixed because it's easier to reach behind than below when your legs are constantly moving so that's why I have the water holders on the back.

BTW: The pic with the HEDs was a joke and not a serious setup.

Added the disk fork to really make it good for the wet weather

* Added racks and riser to make it an all around hauler. I love this bike

* Gave it gears in order to fully assign it hauling duties. It rides very well and the Paul Thumbies are very useful.

Fat tires rule. Because they work.

was mounting those xc tires

on the h3's part of the joke? it seems like that one was all one you.

yup it was

yup it was

Sweet ride, I kinda like it

Sweet ride, I kinda like it with the HEDs!

hahaha

Nice joke with the h3's.

That is another sweet build!

That is another sweet build! Tho I will miss your inspirational IRO! Are the Mavic rims able to handle such wide tires? For some reason, I thought the specs had them maxed out at 30.

Cheers,
Riff

Thanks. I'm going way

Thanks. I'm going way overboard with such fat tires, but I think a lot of times they push conservative #s. I was always curious if it would work or not and found it did without issue.

geez

this bike is all man!

thanks. I think it's nerdy,

thanks. I think it's nerdy, but nerdy is cool!
