Great upgrades!

Made some recent changes worth mentioning.
Took a test ride on one of my favorite local rides, see if you can ID the ride.

Replaced original tires with Kenda K270, front and rear. old tires were very worn, mostly rear with only 2500 miles. Took the bike out today in light rain with some mud. What a big difference! it was a new experience to actually hear the mud coming from the tires! Great grip, both front and rear. Downhill front braking was remarkably better.

The Ricor front fork Intiminator does all it says it does! No more bottoming out the front fork, much more stability and better feel. Easy installation too.
