Im guessing that it is a fat bike fork.  I forgot to state that I was looking at standard dropout spacing ie 100mm not boost or fat.

Buy, Sell, Trade / WTB: Carbon rigid fork

Im looking for a carbon rigid fork to replace my suspension on e.  Wheelsize doesnt matter but it must be a straight 1 1/8 steerer.

Contact me via pm or my username@gmail.com.

How much for the Thomson

I just did a lap of lc and it was a mix of dry almost pavement like hard pack for 70-90%  but all Creek crossings and some spots were loose still but had dry trail next to them. Now when I say loose I'm running 45psi in a 26x1.95 small block eights.

The monon was clear all the way up to 96th last week, so my guess is its all the way clear before todays snow except for crossing some small streets such as 52nd.  Now the culture trail does actually still have some snow on it at crossings for some intersections.  Just a reminder that the fall creek trail is closed after it crosses 38th but there is a detour. 

Now I wonder if the city will plow the trail or just wait for the weather to take care of the snow?

Any news from this meeting as I would have loved to attend if I wasnt out of town.  I might be moving into that area of town and would love to have trails.

Hello new commuting helmet light.  8)   I might have to order a halo soon as I need a new light setup as 2200 lumens isnt quite as bright as I thought it was going to be but just enough to scrape by with with my vision.

I think this combined with 2 of these  http://www.zoralight.com/?id=svitilny/zora_scorpion should be finally enough light for me to actually be able to see at night(around 18k lumens).

Im not kidding I feel like i can only see enough distance with 2200 to have about a 1-2sec reaction time at most some objects like pedestrians are even less at 1sec at most.  Lets not even get started with the walnuts those things are barely visible I just see a spot and cant tell if it is a mark on the pavement or actually walnut which makes riding on the monon in some areas in fall as white knuckle as doing a rock garden at 20mph.

Rants and Raves / New Frame suggestions
« on: November 18, 2013, 12:58:34 AM »

I have been looking at a better frame and was thinking about going steel this time around as my current leader lh515 doesnt match the component spec of the bike.   Who makes a decent steel 26in frame anymore?   I have seen gunnar but that seems about it for a 26in hardtail.

I spoke to Parks today and am working on some behind the scenes stuff and the event application. I'll post when details are more definite.
Sweet hopefully Im not at my parents when this happens.  I have a crazy light setup i would love to test off road as on road its brighter than a car.

It's certainly not an easy or a fast job, especially for a first timer, but it isn't rocket science, either. If you're at all mechanically inclined, it's totally doable. When I got started, I figured that even if I messed up and had to take them to a shop to be trued and tensioned, that'd be cheaper than paying for a build.

As another newbie wheelbuilder, I'd just say to take your time and double, triple, or quadruple check your lacing. I found it helpful to do a couple of sessions of truing, too, so that I didn't rush or get frustrated. I probably put about 10 hours into building my first set. (While I'm at it, I'll also raise my hand and admit that I got slowed down a bit because I kept turning the nipples the wrong way. Yeah, figuring that out sucked.)

Have fun building 'em!

Luckily Ive gotten that nailed down as I true wheels all the time.
Also Ill have to look into a tension gauge as I thought they were around 120-150 retail.

Got these wheels finished the other day, and they turned out pretty nice... aside from the flex in the rear wheel that I wasn't expecting to get. Under heavy load I'm getting 2-3mm of distortion in the wheel. Spoke tension on the drive side are all at the mfg's recommended max so I know that's not the issue.

I can't actually "feel" the flex (at least on flat pavement), I only noticed it because I had a bigger tire on the back that rubbed the front derailleur when I really mash it, so I guess I'll have to see how they are on the trail when things dry up.

Thanks again for the input everyone!

What setup are your running ? I have the same issue but my wheels are only around 1200-1300g and at a lower spoke tension than most rims on the market to prevent cracking.
