Yeah, but i like to ride my bikes hard & rarely on road.
The Mosso's were very light & very cool. However, they are VERY stiff & i found it unacceptably harsh banging over roots & rocks & was concerned for the integrity of my wheels & tyres.
They also made the bike too twitchy, as the frame head angle is designed for suspension forks which are a good 3" longer & was too steep with the rigid forks on. They'd suit an older frame with a more relaxed head angle more.
The forks on there are about a kilo heavier, but make the bike so much nicer to ride & more useable for the type of riding i do.
If i just polished it & just did road riding, the Mosso's would be fine, but i dont. I use my bikes as they were designed to be used. . . which means hard . . . ! This bike will get a lot of abuse. . .
What if the Hokey Kokey really IS what its all about. . . ?
