i thought i'd try 36x17 with the bonti 1.8s. feels pretty fast. had not tried it before sunday. another plus is the mud abilities of these tires in comparison to the nanos. and mud is certainly a big potential. and a good chunk of a pound lighter. i wish the tread pattern was a bit faster/smoother.
thinking i'm going to strap my battery to the bottom of the top tube up by the headtube. i could probably strap it down below the down tube by the BB but i don't like that for weather resistance as much. and i don't love the higher mount as far as climbing a SS bike is concerned. hmm? i could always remove the battery and get it in my pack when not in use. weight is weight i guess but the pendulum effect is pretty powerful.
