same as front. I like these wheels. I hear bad stuff about them, but I find them easy to tune, and pretty reliable for the price

This is my most ridden bike, I love it. I can ride it all day. It's light enough, takes a beating well, and is my friend. After a fairly gnarly crash a few months ago due to my stem breaking, I had to replace my bar, stem and levers. Paul Sadoff made me a brand new stem with the original jig but using beefier steel and a bigger bar clamp to accommodate a new bar. I finished it off with Brooks tape, and now I love this bike more than ever.

Rough Roads

This bike can definitely handle rough roads much better than road bikes without being heavy. I bet it's really comfortable.


in fact, that's how I use it. I live in a rugged area and the road from my house is unpaved, so I kinda need a cross bike like this. I go on rides with roadie friends and I keep up fine. I've never weighed it, but it's super light. And it IS really comfy! I commonly call it my couch on wheels. Once, I was riding down some brutal fire trails for a long 10 mile stretch and the only part of me that was fatigued after were my hands from trying to keep them on the bar. Light, comfortable, and bulletproof. Thanks for noticing!
