I agree with this statement. I originally thought about getting a front suspension fork after a particularly grueling ride on over-inflated stock tires, but once I switched to 20X2's I changed my...

Another Update

I just ordered a set of Specialized 20"x2" Rhythm Lite Sport tires for my Hooligan. The Rhythm Lites have a slightly knobby, raised center ridge for pavement, but medium sized side knobbies for the...

I've had my Hooligan for a few months now, and I have a few more observations to make:

1) Don't overinflate the tires. The wheel base is short, and too much air will definitely harsh your buzz....

Newsjeff, the seatpost does not have a quick release. I don't know how much the Hooligan weighs (I gave my scales away because I thought I didn't need them!), but it is heavier than a folder - it's...

Azreal, sorry about the late response. Yes, the bike has quick releases, but I have the standard fork version of the Hooligan, so I couldn't say what it's like to remove the wheel on the single fork...

I wouldn't call my saddle plush, but it is designed for a more upright riding position. I wouldn't buy a saddle optimized for the crouching position when 90% of my riding is more upright, yet it...

But if the saddle is comfortable the day you buy it, what are you gaining by using a saddle that is finally comfortable after a hundred miles of pain? A few grams of weight?

I agree a good fit is the most important factor when buying a seat, but the idea of "breaking in" a saddle is ridiculous to me, as is the idea of getting "used to" a saddle. Even one ride ruined...

Skinny saddles a pain in the *

As someone who gave up road bikes long ago, I have a question for roadies - do those ultra-skinny saddles really make a difference? I see so many roadies in the classic, off the saddle, just-sort of...

Pat, you might be able to attach a child seat to the back of the Hooligan - the frame is definitely sturdy enough, and the low center of gravity would make it more stable than most bikes with such a...

Road Bikes and Tire Size

I picked up a Cannondale Hooligan this weekend. If you don't know what it is, it looks like a BMX bike with a tall seatpost and eight speeds. The tires are on 20 inch rims.

A Different Kind of Riding
