    Since winter is imminent I've decided to throw some narrow tyres on the Cotic and give cross a go. The geo is a bit wack but the 42c Resolutes combined with a negative rise 100mm stem do make the bike feel a whole lot faster.

    Very in to this. My bike has ended out going through a similar process to yours and have just received a pair of WTB Resolutes to try my hand at cross. Big tyres + steel + drops are just a consistently rowdy time

    Been making some incremental changes on the Kona with a Works Components angleset, some SLX brakes from my old mountain bike and tubeless. Nothing too drastic but adds up to make the bike feel that much more comfortable.

    Also discovered a crack at the top of the seatstay of my old mountain bike so that's being properly retired. Was interesting to have it out and see how geo has changed in the last 10 years.

    It's just a cheap foam tape underneath the cotton tape for a bit of added squish

    After almost a year of not managing to get this stem and my bike in the same place we finally have a result. Will probably paint it properly in the future but for now I've thrown on some clearcoat and called it a day.

    Thanks to @Hulsroy and stayer cycles for making this happen!

    With the move back to New Zealand and mountains on my doorstep I figured the Cotic could do with a reprieve.

    Enter, the first complete bike I've bought this decade. Have a few longterm plans for it including an angleset and new brakes, but in the meantime it's just good to be riding mountain bikes again!

    I've been running i21s for a few years and currently have 2.2" front and 1.9" rear. Have thought about replacing them with something wider but also have had zero problems with them

    Glad you got it sorted!

    And my partners, so not technically mine. It's been great, once you get the fit sorted you can't really go wrong with a 90's mountainbike

    Just in case you need any more inspiration...

    Regarding the derailleur; Is it possible to loosen off the bolt and rotate the entire derailleur clockwise around the hanger?
