Sounds a little redundant but hey, maybe you can convince yourself they all fit a different niche?!

That’s a beautiful Seven! Love the color, panels and just a great setup.

Smoothies in the Front, Knobbies in the Rear.

Took the Crust out for some Putnam County ramblin this weekend with some pals. Good times and perfect roads.

Nice crust. Wouldn’t you normally want more grip in the front and the faster rolling tire in the back?

depends on the situation.,

my primary reason for putting something with some meat out back is climbing and keeping rear traction.

awesome. i am looking for a ritchey swiss cross if anyone hears of anything... ideally somewhat built up... tempted by cantis but the new disc model looks more practical ?

My late 90s swiss cross fit a true 38 w/knobs and nothing more. Wish I could find another in a size up, that was one of the coolest bikes I've owned.
