Oops, I did it again...

Those tyres weigh about 1kg each.

Looks ready for Kamikaze (mountain - not divine wind suicide), Just need some Japanese flag decals and it'll be perfect.

Ohh I do like this frame - and it suits the dirt drops - nice build.

With those tyres you can sleep safe in the knowledge that quicksand will never catch you out:

"Liquid underneath with a sort of dried crust on top, rather like a mouldy rice pudding"

"But Sir - Katie must weigh all of two tons!"

Keep coming back to look at this bike - very cool.

If you swapped the U-brake for a rollercam and added some WTB parts it could almost be a 'Pottsahara', or something.

Potts is what inspired the drops.
