Congrats

I had this as an 11,000 mile long term test bike.




And it was a very good bike as long as the terra was firma


I also had the previous more manly (spoked rims) version for about 10,000 miles and it was the same.

Thanks everyone. I've read almost universal praise for this model. I do hope that this will be decent on some dirt roads and smooth trails. I've been lucky so far with the RT taking it where it doesn't belong.

Did I mention it's nearly new?

It's absolutely fine and fun in those conditions.

Fwiw I found the bike liked Anakees better than all the other mostly pavement-oriented tires I tried (and I tried a lot between this and the other one). Best on-pavement grip (especially wet) and pretty good for dirt roads. Of course, that's "current" information as of 6-7 years ago

Good, at this point I have no delusions of grandeur regarding mud, rocks, or deep water crossing. Not yet.

It's got the OEM Anakee 2's on it I think. Still okay for the time being.
