they rode smooth and fine, better than they seem. Tonight i'll swap them for mtb tyres, tomorrow i'll ride in the nearest coast mountains.

the beer at the bar wasn't specially nice :-(

Genuine question: why don't the tyres roll off the rims? Or do they?

because they weren't laced at the moment. in fact i use some mavic 230 with dx hubs. that was to see the effect. i've just laced the front one this week. the pic is from last week.

A dictionary definition of philistine: 2 (usu. philistine) a person who is hostile or indifferent to culture and the arts, or who has no understanding of them.

ok thanks.

I'll post a pic in its conventional configuration with normal wheels and tyres, turbo seat and spd pedals. And a lot of dust too.

well, here there is a sentence that says that you'll never go to bed without learning something new...

thanks guys

Now with decent wheels (RM20s w dx hubs, original Dart in the front, reissue Smoke in the rear) and the turbo seat. Forget the seatpost, i'll fit the xt post soon.
I hope you don't make a philistine smile this time :-D

Sorry, phone pics and very sunny hours, not the best conditions for the pics

Cheers
