Very nice collection Miguel! I agree that trekking bars are the way to go if not going with drops. I have them on my Cimarron and never grow tired of riding it. The MB-1 is really sweet.

Thanks for the reply. I have the same hubs so I can only assume the previous owner had the 27Ē rims laced to his OEM hubs. Perhaps he thought at the time 27Ē tires would be easier to find on the road.
