    Another data point from a person on the internet you've never met: I'm 5'9", skinny and long arms. I tried a meidum 2013 Misceo (not trail) and felt too stretched out on it, it put too much weight...

    Put me down for the Allant too. I'd take either the 7.2 or 7.4.

    No, no way. You're kicking ass, that's what you are doing. You bought a bike to lose weight, you stuck with it and you lost weight. I don't even know you but I'm happy to read your post. You want...

    Maybe. The ride is likely to be more harsh on the narrower tires.

    I've had the exact same experience. I like to stay active on and off the bike and people honestly dont' believe me when I tell them that I don't crave that kind of food anymore, nor do I feel good...

    Another good tire from Freedom WTB is the Ryder. I have the 700x32s on my Kona, they also have a 700x38 that might be a better option. They have flat protection, roll fast on pavement and have some...

    This advice is spot on, I think either of them would be a better option than the Novara Buzz (at full price).

    Definitely. If designers need to hit an overall price point for the bike and spend more on the frame, they have to cut back on other areas.

    Personally I don't think the parts on that Jamis are...

    That's just a gorgeous looking bike, well done! I'm really pleased with the paint and logos of this years Jamis lineup, I've seen a few at our local shop and they look great!

    I agree, my first bike since being a kid had a frame that was too large. It was hard to notice when I was testing it but became a real comfort issue after I owned it for a while. I ended up selling...

    Then the only difference you have left to consider is the price, and you should go with the Kona and use the money you save on other things you need or enjoy.

    Kona makes a good bike. I have a...

    I'm going to go against the grain here and suggest you sell the bike (as is, unmodified) and get a new one that you can test ride first. It's the only way you'll really be happy with the results.

    I didn't mean to give you the impression the 32s won't fit, they definitely will. I just meant to provide some background on why the 32s you rode earlier were more like 29s in real life. You can...

    Given what you said about where you are going to be riding, wider tires might be nice to have. I'm a 700x35 guy but I thought I'd try 32s on my latest set and I ride in similar conditions as you. ...

    The bike is nice but I think you should look at different brands. You're not going to be comfortable with either size and will likely spend the next year swapping components like stems, seat posts,...
