Ole' Baloney somehow got out of his stall and got a good frolick in the snow. The hardest part was getting him back inside. :D

No, Really!

Have you tried running your rear tire the other way? Is the grip while climbing and accelerating any different? Is it a pain to use a disc w/ the horizontal drops? Damn I ask a lot of questions. Nice bike -- sweet integrated seatpost clamp.

It's a Boy!

HaHaHa....

Actually, it is the medal for the virgin of Guadalupe. My wife made me put it on after I wrecked and got a 9 inch scar on my leg.

WTB recommends the rear tire to be run as the same as the front. Acceleration and climbing? I've run both ways and didn't notice any difference. I was running Conti Gravity 2.3's on there, but they slipped and skittered. Horizontal dropouts aren't too difficult to deal with, you just have to have a 19mm box end wrench and a 5mm hex. Flip the bike over, adjust the wheel position, then eyball the caliper position in relation to the rotor and make your adjustment. I admit that it is a bit more tinkering than a dropout with an EBB.

Ole' Baloney is a good bike, tough and fun.

I was kinda worried when I read that your 'Ol Baloney got out (not sure what the pictures of that were going to be like)...but, good looking steed there.

Yup Ole Baloney...

Is one Heck of a ride.

Apprently I confused El-Cid with my opening statement. :D

I'm really happy with it and he didn't break the bank.

Happy Trails!
