    Nice bike, does look fast.

    I also opted for Racing Ralph 2.1 / Nobby nic 2.25 for my singlespeed build (tubeless with stans solution, on Olympic rims).

    What do you think of the tyres?

    Same bike as mine except yours has better components ;) Any more pictures of it so I can compare to mine?

    The 2.1 NN/NN combo is ok on my local loops, took me a while to get the psi right so that they felt ok, can't see me running them through the winter though. They are the new version and are holding up pretty well so far.

    At the minute I have an old style ralph on the back which is pretty worn. This is a good fast tyre for when it's hard and dry and rolls well. I usually have the back at 45psi which is fine for the xc stuff I ride. It is not good when it is wet!!! I would like to try one of the new ralphs on the back next year, might even put a pair on over the summer. Thought about tubeless myself but can't be doing with the hassel tbh.

    Nice Rockhoppers! Wife has a standard 2008 Disk and it's a fine bike.

    But if I had one, I'd always hanker after a Stumpjumper - which is why I have two... :wink:
