Crema Duo




After owning this bike for over a year (which is a long time for me) I've finally bought a second wheel set for it.



I've been running i9 hubs on my 650b set so have kept an eye out for something with the same hubs in 700c and jumped on hellveticas purple trail/ultralite set. New bearings and freehub and they are rolling great, with 38mm Schwalbe g-one allarounds (thanks to adomhell)



New wheel day feels like new bike day . Even with such big tires with a little tread, the bike feels quick and nimble on the road, very smooth on the flats, and punchy out of the saddle on climbs. I hit a few tame gravel roads and bits of singletrack too, less cushy but way faster than the beefy mountain bike tires.

Man you're putting in work with that bike!

Glad you're fully using it to it's potential in the bay area! I can't wait to get up to Tam/Alpine/Bofax/Hawk Hill/Etc...

This has always been one of my favorites. Any update on the Onza tires? I’m curious about durability, how they roll on paved and off, cornering in the loose?

The onza canis have been excellent tires - though definitely a trail tire. They are loud and quite slow on the road, but make up for their ability on loose trails, steep trails and tight corners. They’ve had 6 to 8 months of steady use and the center knobs are now wearing to the point that they’ll be replaced soon. In that time have never had a puncture or sealant leak.

Playing around with some compass snoqualamie pass tires on the 700c wheels. These were heavily used by a friend so they wouldn’t set up tubeless, but even with tubes they roll so smooth. The bike has a whole new liveliness, and the stance is really nice with the big slick rubber
