    Downtube 9FS Update

    Decided to go for some drop bars. Love this change. Cross levers make braking in city traffic a non issue. I like this bike more every time I ride it. Single bar end for shifting means no more index...

    Started off as the Monster Commuter with Big Apples - but those tires were just too big and I could not mount fenders with them. Going to try out the Duranos here...

    Rear Downtube shock - anyone replace?

    Took the Big Apples off my DT9FS as they won't fit under my fenders. Put some much harder Duranos on there. Noticed that my rear shock is stiff stiff stiff! I am not sure what he quality of the stock...

    Hmmm I would have to drill and tap a hole on the drive side of my rear fork. Since I converted to disc brakes I'll have to see if they would get in the way of this type of rack.

    Well,
