I am thinking about upgrading some parts of my Dahon D7 to make it more comfortable and, if possible, somewhat speedier. So far I have come up with these two options and I was wondering what is your take on the matter:
a) Brooks Flyer Saddle (~$100) + Schwalbe Kojak tires (~$70 for a pair)
b) Brooks B17 saddle (~$70) + Schwalbe Big Apple LiteSkin tires (~$100 for a pair)
I weight 150lbs and I plan on using some bullhorn bars at around the same height of my seat post.
Sooooo what do you think? Any better suggestion? The reason why I would not pair the Flyer and the Apples is because I think it would add too much weight to the bike if combined but I might be wrong!!
Brooks Flyer (860 grams)
Brooks B17 (540 grams)
Big Apple Lite x1 (505 grams)
Kojak x1 (230 grams)
Many thanks in advance!!
PS: Do you know if the D7 stock wheels will accept the 20x1.35 Kojaks?
