I think he has abandoned 98
As for tyres, my shcwalbe crazy bobs are heavy and massive but have bead to bead tread. I still managed to almost slide out on them a couple times though for being too sideways!
Almost knee down on a pushbike.
Nope...I'm here still
just very busy with other stuff. The DK is finished off with some stuff from the Vicious. I don't exactly know what I am doing but I think the rough plan is to keep the DK as my classic retro stylee bike, and build something else, modern, forks, disc brakes
Yeh, the tyres, I have become used to them...I think I will feel 10x fitter when I fit narrower and lighter tyres, not sure which yet. I'm only commuting at the moment so was thinking Marathon Supremes (I think they are called that)
First impressions DK vs Vicious and this is based on nothing but road riding, is that the DK seems more 'composed', a little stiffer maybe. The Vicious seems to have more flex and feels lighter, whippier, if that makes sense.
Biggest diff. from builds is the Phil rear hub, it's almost silent compared to my previous Hope Pro3, just a gentle tick. And the wheels roll, and roll, and roll.
For ever changing my mind and my cars
