so so nice! Just read the lfgss thread of this. Was it 700c to begin with, but it could take 650b and you made this conversion when you built the new wheels? Cheers

HI, when you had the drop bars, what tyres were you using? Are they Panaracer Pasela 35s?

I'd personally prefer the drops, but the riser setup looks rad for trail shredding

Hi there, where'd you get those Kodak-bottles and what fenders are those? Looking for some decent fenders for my awol .... thanks in advance!

Hey. The bottles are from Mash and the fenders are available through your Specialized dealer. I think they were in the Globe series. Cheap stuff. Had to paint them black myself though, and they won't fit much bigger tyres than 35c.

Just read the bike's Story online and your Plans to ditch the fenders and the paselas in favor of bigger tires; I planned the Same, but the other way round!
Two weeks ago I toured about 300km in two days on the Awol and about 100km of them in the pouring rain ... I wished a had fenders! The only fenders I think are visually acceptable are hammered fenders like VO or mud butler, and those come in max width of 45mm, so not enough for those fat boys. How did the Awol work out aus a classic Road tourer?

Yes, the reason I went as small as 35mm tyres was to fit fenders that didn't cost a fortune. I think VO has a bigger model that will fit Fatboys, but the look isn't perfect.

I enjoyed the tour a lot. We were on some gnarly gravel roads and even some smooth single tracks too. It handled everything, but I do feel that it's on the rougher stuff that it really shines. On the road it's just another bike that can haul a load – although in a perfectly good matter.

I think having both setups available is perfect. One for longer road tours and one for weekend getaways or mountain adventures.
