Alright all you reserved prissy lycra-clad peeps...I'm sorry about the hypermasculine/tacky title. I couldn't help it. Soooo...let your imaginations run wild! Bring on the Spam!
I got some new Cross Country tires. I got tired of that freakin' Freeride crizzap, so I went with some "skinney-Minnies".
I don't know why they worked, but the profile of the Nevegal allows me to fit a 2.5" in the rear. (heehee, neener-neener)
The Excavators must have had a slightly taller casing b/c a 2.35" Excavator rubbed my chainstays. The Nevegal seems to seat a little closer to the axis, so it fits in the bulge of my frame pretty well.
Round 2 is my "broken seatpost"...for some reason, every time I try to shift my front derailleur...my stupid saddle drops to the floor.
