Thanks people
The Specialized was an experiment to see if I liked SSing, built up from bits I had....and I did :D One frame had to go and it was the Specialized so decided to build up the Kona. Suits me fine, maybe not historically correct (sorry Anthony :lol: ) but its built up by me, for me, in the style I like.
The gearing is a compromise and based on what my majority of cycling comprises of...which is commuting/easy singletrack...and when time permits, something more challenging. The ratio is 38/16...too easy on the flat road/ harder on climbs...but its teaching me a different way to ride, and thats what I like...oh and the silence and simplicity. Less=more and all that.
Thanks for your comments
Carl
