I am pretty satisfied with the Smart Sams for the price!Hi QueSera
Great Pics - looks and reads like you have done a lot of up-grading. I am most interested in your choice of tyres. In addition to the Continental 37mm it came with I have a second set of 28mm Vittoria I put on when I am just on the road and it makes a big difference.
Also considering upgrades such as the ones you have done - esp to fork.
Bike rides well - easy to do 60 - 80 km rides - and feels pretty good on road and off-road. Looking to do more off-road through some of the trials close to home and keen to see if the upgrades do make a difference. I know upgrading tyres would make a difference already!!
