    Looks good! Why not go tubeless?

    Thanks mate! Because for now looks like I will travel with my bike every 2 months and actually don't want to mess everything up with sealant.

    No reason you'll mess everything up, you can let the tyres down if that's what you mean? Although you don't actually need to, if an aircraft hold wasn't pressurised bicycle tyres would be the least of your worries!

    Very nice!

    Will think about going tubeless. But the worst thing for now is saddle. I am back on bike after 2 years and pretty overweight with wide bones so Tundra 2 is not for me now. I was starting my cycling with fizik nisene about 5 years ago, then switched to fizik antares, then to Bontrager Evoke R. Then I built lightweight Cube Reaction 29 GTC also with fizik tundra and wasn't so bad at that time because my censored already adapt to saddles, but for now after 30min it is hard to handle that pain. Im thinking about Evoke RL in L size.

    Thanks guys! This bike is really amazing, but my cycling skills after 2 years is terrible, actuallycI don't have enough strenght to perform as much as I want, bit will keep going. Today bought Specialized Phenom Comp. Get measured in Elite Shop and sit bone widht was about 124mm so took 155mm saddle. After 50 min ride didn't feel discomfort. It is downgrade in weight (220g vs 260g), but pretty huge upgrade in performance.

    Thanks guys! Really love Thunder Burt tires because of rolling speed and grip that is amazing for that kind of tire. Will post later pic with new grips and saddle.

    Agree on the Burts, so much more capable than they should be, looking at them.
  • persikspersiks Posts: 61
    You really should try them if you don't spend all day in muddy terrain.

    By the way, specialized saddle is perfect for my butt. Can't feel it when riding. :)

    Is it the angle or is the saddle pointing massively downwards??
  • persikspersiks Posts: 61
    I think it is because of picture angle. It is little bit downwards, but not massively

    Not trying to mimic Kulhavy's Epic?:

  • persikspersiks Posts: 61
    Nice angle. Maybe I should try like set angle like this one. :D

    I'd have a go if it made me anything like as quick as him!

    Today my bike saw wet forest conditions. TT tires are pretty slipper on wet rocks, but enjoyed riding really much.
