I assembled my Kokopelli this way: I use it for mixed on-off road rides: there are many flat paths I can ride fast on 1.5 crossroad tires, and the 50-34 crankset allows a fast pace on tarmac. Very good training sled.
bars are those specy drop bars that were mounted on rockcombos. Not period correct, but very effective.
More, it's a cool commuter

Actually, it's very interesting, and a nice alternative to road rides. I mean, you ride smoothly on road, you see a nice path, just get into it without worrying for your 7 kilos carbon bike, ride off road, and then get back on the road. Plus, Specy drops are comfy as well
