damn!, this is the kind of bike I love coming across. thick tires like a hip hop honey with more storage options than military cargo pants & hand position options suitable for a mime. Not to mention a respected drivetrain that can go the distances this thing looks like it was built to do, all with the silver fenders which make this bike! & stretched leather saddle giving a wink of pure class as you cruise past insecure elitists in an old school mountain bike from a period when it was all about having fun anywhere you want to ride. This bike has more than gotten a 'Response' outta me. Incredible job of creating a down & dirty bad boy that gives the illusions of being so free that it has a set of wings tucked back into the frameset somewhere.

This looks really fun to ride. Would you ever put different tires on it if you were to ride in the snow?
