I currently have another Firefly. It’s an “All-Road” bike but I had it built pretty much with a proper road bike geometry that fits up to 38c tires since it was – until now – my only bike. So with this bike, I wanted something completely different, otherwise what’s the point of having 2 similar bikes. Hence, the steel fork, 1 1/8” ht, 26” wheels (because I felt like 650b will be too close to my 700c fatty tires). I really liked the aesthetics of Jan’s bike so I wanted something similar to that. I’m not really sure how I’ll split up the time riding both bikes because they’re both capable but I’ll definitely be using this bike for more bikepacking, adventure type of rides.
