The latest iteration of the '96er

I gots stuff on ebay right now trying to make my way to a jake the snake. I look forward to seeing yours when you get it.

Two people have suggested that I put 700c mavic speedcity wheels w/ cx tires on my 26 hardtail. apparently it fits with 35c tires & disc brakes. Any thoughts, MG?

yo rf -- i know a bunch of guys that have done the 700c 'cross wheels in their disc brake mtbs, and as far as i know, it's worked well. i haven't tried it personally though, so i can't comment from experience...

i still think that, for cross, a dedicated cross bike is the way to go, but if you're in a pinch, the converted mtb is a good, lower cost option. plus, you've already got your position dialed on the mtb, so you wouldn't have to go through the "getting to know you" period with it like you would with a new/different bike.

daverill... i'd marry your russian sister, but my wife might have something to say about it, so maybe not. don't you just love blog-spam?
