My son really took a liking to my Specialized Globe, so he's co-opted it (okay, I gave it to him, but he asked nicely and my back yard looks fantastic! LOL!) and I was reduced to a full-on MTB, and my Seven roadbike... I really enjoyed my flat-bar "fun bike" for anything from casual rides on asphalt trails, to trips to the store, rides with teh kids, etc... I really miss that bike already (and its only been a week.. LOL). So, time to build the Diamondback Ti frame (mid-90's frame made in the US).... I am not done yet by any means, but I am pretty close. Waiting on some tools (headset reomval/press so that the King HS can go in..).
It will have a mostly-mountain drive-train, but will ride on a carbon rigid fork (disc compatible), and Michelin slicks..
