    nice :)

    I've got a duster build on the go...when i say on the go i mean every single part is waiting in the garage except the frame which im still waiting for :evil:

    How are the wheels? Ive got some crossrides for mine but i've heard reports they are a bit weak and go out of true easily...I'm thinking of getting some hope/717s built up...

    :shock:

    Just noticed you're tyres, are you sure about those? I put some of those on my mums bike as she rides on the road quite a bit but i would think they would be not too good off road...???

    Conti Traffics 09 are way more versatile than people give them credit for, those outer edges have great digging in properties and can handle a surprising amount of xc if you push them. More than you should expect for the price / design, that's for sure.
  • I really like the wheels, theyve been on for about 3 months and are still fine as for the tyres I mainly use me bike for work so mainly roads but they are pritty good offroad too I thought, they are as they say the perfect in between tyre! I think if you were doing solely offroad stuff then a proper set of offride tyres would be more suitable.
