The long reach makes me feel like a 9 year old riding his first supercycle. Im like leaning way over the front axle and it feels ridiculous. With my road bike,.pedalling out of the saddle my butt is hovering over the saddle placing my weight rearward for stability and excellent power transfer. It could work well on singletrack.. mostly.

ITs been a long long time ago, but i picked up some aggressive "Rain tread" tires for my bike and thought they would be the ticket for light duty trail use ---- so i hit it on some dry days -- Was unique and fun for a ride or two. Then i realized my real mountain bike was more fun
I got some Dia compe side pull brakes. I can fit up to 45 in the front and maybe 32 or 34 max in the rear.
