I have some chromo Marys on my Swift and find them really comfortable, the rise and backsweep give a nice relaxed feel when pottering along but they are still pretty responsive in the twisty stuff.

I bought 2 pairs in the On One sale but might let a pair go if anyones interested.

I like the idea of the dirt drops to and might be tempted with a set of Midges on a future build.

I found that they suit my rigid bike more than my quite compact and racy XC hardtail Kili personally, they work for me on the Rockhopper best as it's a long, tall frame... feels ideal as a tourer in the lowest photo (like you I have some slicks ready for that purpose)

Probably the same reason they suit the 29er Swift
