OK, here's my Jeffson converted old Kona singlespeed. Its not light, but should be fairly bombproof.

Now running Pace RC31's (the best deal ever scored on tardme! unwanted spot prize brand new in the box for $350 incl shipping.... I just about wet myself trying to get them....).

You would be surprised at how good those whitelwall tyres are (apart from looking completely bitchin'). they seem quite soft, and they're really grippy on hardpack (like canterbury clay in summer) and even hang on quite well leaned over. good on the road too, not so noisy or rough as offroad tyres. Best thing about them is they are $25 each on tardme.... about $27.50 with shipping.

After all the drama with the Hope headset, I went and bought a cheap-ish sealed bearing Cane Creek and it popped right in there....

I'm happy now. the only change I would make is maybe some lighter wheels at some point (though I love that black rim stainless spoke combo). I'd change out the frame too if I could find a 14 or 16 inch litespeed Obed with a disc mount.

but in the meantime, I'm happy. see? >> happy face :)

How do those bars feel? It looks a bit stretched out?
