    Yeah, skipii's geared giraffe was mad fun to cruise around on. Definitely harder to ride than a schlumpf. One of these days I will make a youtube account so I can upload some vids I took with it as well.

            Tell me about it

            Great picture!

            And nice tire too! I think it has become my favorite 26er tire.

              How have I never posted in this thread??

              I added a speed stripe to my G29er, hopefully it'll make me go quicker!

                My ever-changing road ride has (at least temporarily) gone geared!

                I'm only borrowing the wheelset right now and it's required some fettling to get right, but I think I've got it all sorted now.

                I thought the tyre would be horrendous on road but despite being quite loud, it's surprisingly good; Not too skittish and it handles camber really well in high and low gear.

                  Made an upgrade to the G29er... Replaced the D2 rim with a Light Bicycle carbon one. They also sent me some blade-shaped spokes which I thought would make lacing a pain, but they actually made some steps easier, so now I have an aero carbon unicycle

                        I had a rim brake on the D2 rim, but this carbon rim has no braking surface so I had to take it off. I might put a disc on it (Got plenty of clearance to do so with a bit of grinding) but I'm pretty happy without, so might not bother and save myself the hassle

                          Not a chance you're stopping that thing quickly with 110mm cranks when at any reasonable cruising speed!

                            I can stop reasonably at 'cruising speed', it's when you get to 'racing speeds' that it gets a bit dodgy. The lighter wheel stops even easier

                              For me it's just feeling confident that I can stop if something happens in front of me. Especially on a shared use path, if a child or dog or person ends up in front of me, stopping in more than about a meter is not really good enough. You can't do that without a brake when your wheel circumference is multiple metres.

                                I probably wouldn't be high gearing it (at least not at raggin' it speed) in those situations anyway I never actually learned to stop with the brake either, just slow down big descents.
