That Kona just looks fast if that makes sense. Nice balance to the look of it.

It was in this form.

Rode the L2B on it with slicks.

Certainly made me giggle.

Back to 26'' knobblies know though.

A potentially irrelevant (as ever) aside, but just fitted a NOS Smoke 700x45c front tyre to my cyclocross bike and had plenty of clearance.

Not sure what point I'm making, possibly just that cyclocross frames can take pretty wide tyres, or at least some frames can.

Depending on exact tyre choice, a CX tyre is about the same diameter as an MTB tyre.
