The Kestrel is really starting to grow on me, so I decided it was time to treat it to something nice and shiny.
Thanks for all the kind words.
I changed the Deda because it was too long and crazy flexy. The 3T (Chromix it think it is called) is the exact opposite in terms of flex. Hoping the Specialized bars will add some comfort to the mix.
23 or 26 is a big difference no? Do they fit the frame? Clearance on my 650 frames is already tight with modern 23 tires.
That's strange. They don't show up on Conti's website.
Finally managed to squeeze in a first ride on the Kestrel. Surprisingly it feels just like any other bike. I was expecting the lack the of a seat tube would add some suspension into the mix, but that is definitely not the case. Feels as harsh as any other modern bike.
So much want right now. Was hoping it was an Ebay link.. .
The right consistency mud will definitely throw the chain off.
If I am not mistaken, loads of xc racers are using of front chain guide.
Not sure either, but that is part of why I would like to give it a try :)
