The Minion up front has got to be a 2.5. I was on the fence about what tires to get but figured I would get what Joey here is riding since he's kicking so much ass. But my 2.35 looks way smaller and they don't even sell the 2.35 in a 3C compound.

Sick-ter. Styled and dialed. Only thing I don't get, is why a set of Tricon's need to be mounted ghetto..? Nice work Joey, well done.

what do you call those small plastic connectors that bunch up the brake and shifter cables (in the pic with the cockpit/handlebar/stem setup). i need those!
