I did the build to be as light while strong as possible, these tires are thin and light but that is it. With a rigid frame and pumped to the max, they are harsh when it comes to bumps. they roll fast and handle well but at the cost of comfort.

Nice bike. I like how rigid mountain bikes essentially made a come back as gravel/cyclocross road bikes.

Thank you. I just think These type bicycles are great to re-purpose. Once you find one with good bones to work with and do it up right. you will love it. I also think they are a great deal down the line compared to the same money on new. Steel is real for a reason
