Will let you know after tomorrow!

Hopefully get some pictures of it in action but again I will be swapping the tyres and wheels as I dont want these tiogas to get worn/damaged etc. as they look good but are actually quite brittle on the sidewalls and never used before I got them so want to keep them that way.

Well, I tried to change the wheels/tyres on saturday night before the Ashton court meet but I found out that there is very little tyre clearance! I was trying to fit some 1.95 tyres but they rubbed the chainstays! The Tiogas are 1.85 and that is about the limit! So I figuured I should just use it as it is.

I have to say it did really well!! It is noticiably long in the frame and I know its too big but we didn't do any downhill really, just gentle sloping single track which is what it was meant for in the first place.

I felt the bike has a lot of character and I'm really pleased I spent the time on it. I think its future is woodland trails and not anything too serious, but we did the red run at ashton court and it was fine.

Thanks to Tiboltrider for this pic!
