    I like the road tyres, but the off roads would be cool for something different.

    What you doing with this one Matty?

    I think I'll go with the duros.

    This one will be an adventure bike diggs. The last big ride I did was on a dax and fuel was an issue so next step was to build a gorilla.

    I'll probably set up 2 sets of wheels which may turn into another build because you can't waste spare wheels right?!?

    You know you’re going to have to take the whole thing apart again to fit the steering lock?

    Smart move, I couldn’t find a fancy alloy one that fitted either, only the two stock types that the blokes on here recommended me.
