They do look good.
Are you putting same size discs and cassette on those wheels? Make for an easy swap out and lock out for the tarmac.

Thanks! 8)

Nah I'll just swap the crossrides tyres over with them.

Still need to have a go at straightening out the WTB's a bit more, just changed the bearings in them too. Also I don't have a spare 8 speed cassette. :P

My very confused looking bike, in front of the shed I built a week or two ago, I'm loving the tyres!!

Road cycling for me this week, well turbo trainer at the moment as it's throwing it down!

P.s. I made that mud guard, but I've not fitted it properly yet. :lol:

I dont know the weight. They arent hugely heavy though but do come up small for stated size.

Bike looks great.
