Well "go fast" in my case is a relative term, but with 26x1.25 Panaracer Pasela TG tires my Atlantis feels quite zippy. The bike is amazingly versatile. Wearing 26x1.75 Schwalbe Marathons its more like a mountain bike, but for road riding a 1.25" or 1.5" tire works best.

I've replaced the link wires that came with the IRD cantilevers with a Tektro BRH05 yoke so that I can get clearance to mount a front rack, and I'm in the process of replacing the Sugino chain rings with TA rings.
