I wholeheartedly agree about tanwalls, those would definitely look worse.

It's more that those tires are insanely heavy and don't really offer great grip. Pound and a half added just in tires.

Those tanwall WTBs can be found in blackwall as well.

I'm an out-of-shape overweight, old mountain biker. I'm just looking for something to ride when it's too wet to ride in the woods. Don't really care about weight a whole lot

No experience with the WTB but on my previous commuter bike I was running a pair of Schwalbe Supermoto and I loved them. Very light and plenty of grip.

The overall weight might not be your main interest but you'll notice it when it's rotating weight.

I 2nd what memento said about the rotational weight. You don't want to add any more weight there than is absolutely necessary. Also, love the detailed touches, memento. Cockpit is on point tup

The rims just barely fit between the brake pads, and the tires (both came in underweight, too) measure in at 27.69mm.

Nice, love the profile silhouette.

I don't really like SRAM but the colours really are a good match for that frame. 10/10 would ride.

I like the carbonara pump. Big Grin

To be fair, I like this Specialized a lot better than the modern ones. I like their mountainbikes but never been a big fan of their current road models.

Good looking bike all together! Robin
