TBH - Crossrides have always held up for me, and holding up my bulk dependably when i hit 40mph downhill is top of my list!
The only thing to fault on them is the cheap looking hubs, I think the flat spokes and detailed rims look great for the price.

The forks are actually set at 100mm at the moment, I have the travel reducer and just need to get around to fitting it - but as they were serviced before I fitted them im reluctant to do this until the next service.

Thanks for your comments - as a couple have noted, the bike was built to ride, and ride well.
I dont think the pictures do it justice, its drop dead gorgeous in the flesh! (blame the photographer)

Looks awesome Jamie. Those Biscuit Tioga Psycho's looks familiar. They really suit the frame infact all Konas in general.

I'm searching for a set of these tyres if you ever decide to move them on :wink:

Lovely bike by the way
