    havnot - Nice Kona. What size tires are you running? What about gearing? I just picked up some 32's for some gravel grider rides. Trying to decide what gearing to go with. Thinking 63 gear inches (42x18).

    Is there no rear brake? I don't think I could deal with a front roller brake as my only brake.

    Yeah, I see it's with the 3 speed hub. I'm don't know how well it holds up to backpedaling but with that front brake you will have to use your legs a lot. I just don't find front roller brakes confidence inspiring with their internal modulating mechanism that make them mushy and weak.

    I doubt he's sprinting around at 30mph on that bike. I'm sure it's fine.

    Exactly, even though i have taken this bike on a big ride with some serious hills goin more than 30, thats not what i made this bike for. Its mostly a low speed commuting bike

    brake has enough power for me, my legs do most of the work i just use it for the oh **** moments and bleeding off speed on descents

    Changed out the black Odyssey Twisted PC pedals with some tangerine ones in my never ending quest for más naranja.

    Thanks. Running a 35mm up front and 32mm in the rear. I can get the 35mm to fit in the rear, but the clearance is a bit tight for my liking 2-3 mm only with the Forte Gothams that I'm running. The front seems like it can take up to a 40mm tire though I'd have to wiggle the tire through especially after having just installed the Kool Stops. The bike as you can see doesn't have any brake bosses for mini-V's or canti's, but the stock road brakes work just fine since I don't plan on doing anything in the mud. I'll use my mountain bike for that!

    I'm currently running a 42x16 (71 gear inches) right now and it's a good on-road ratio. However, found it tough going off-trail when I hit any sort of steep or semi-steep and sustained climbs. I was able to power my way through some of the shorter ascents. In the pic I posted, I had to hike-a-bike to the top, though I can clear it with my geared MTB. However, the descent was such a blast!

    So all and all, I find the 42x16 ratio good for undulating terrain, but difficult for anything more than that. Saying this though, I am just getting back into biking of any kind so I'm not that bike fit at all. Thinking of picking up the Dos Eno freewheel and going dinglespeed. If I can find the 16/19 freewheel cog, then I'll probably add a 39t chainring upfront and run a 42x16 and 39x19 setup. The 39x19 ratio would be about 51 gear inches. The dinglespeed setup would be like having two bikes in one.

    My originally stock Phat Phixie that I picked up at a pawn shop for cheap. I was going to leave it as is, but couldn't help myself. It has a flat bar and spd pedals because those were in my parts bin. I ride it 30 to 60 miles and it's comfortable enough. It weighs in at 19.8 lbs if anyone is curious.
