    If you are referring to my bike, then thanks! I like the bike with flatbars. I often have a large wire basket attached to the rack for carrying things. It's a really great bike for bashing around...

    I hear you about dialing the pressures and sizes, but if you want to run bigger tires for comfort just do front and back if you can and dial performance with pressures. At least that makes sense to...
