XX stuff arrived today Its so light it feels like plastic lol
Will get some pics soon
Should have got the 135mm dropouts, but anyway.
So much win right here.
Also, Stans crest or arch/DT 240 6-bolt/aerolites FTW (with a dt240 ss rear wheel too!)
I am going to speak with Greg at Two Wheel Enterprises tomorrow re some wheels for the bike. At this point in time i am happy to stay with the quick release rear hub but will look at changing the rear drop outs later down the track. Luckily its a bolt on rear drop out so i didnt really have to worry to much about it straight away
so whats the deal with 29" whats the advantage?
or is that like all the hardparkers with 20" rims at Auto Salon?
mmmm by the way though.....I'm starting to fancy one of those Yeti's
in the middle of a midlife crisis
Yetis are and always will be a piece of porn kit...
as for 29er... some say its the way forward, some say its a fad... its meant to be more maneouverable, both the guys at work ride 29er SSs, and Bev rides 29er dualie as well... he gets them for the size as he is liek 6'10"
bigger wheel = more momentum, easier to roll over shit.
summed up in a nutshell.
If you're bigger they just fit better. If you want to roll over shit then they're good too. They make up a little if you have mediocre bike handling skills. They're flat out faster on flowy trails, arguably slower through very twisty stuff, and faster up steep climbs.
Not quite as comfy as a duallie, prolly not as flat out fast as an 80mm hardtail (atleast over short distances) but a pretty good compromise.
Now, I just need ido9s to tell me his address and where he leaves the spare keys to his garage.
haha, no chance mate
I also need to man up and ride clipped in. Would be such a waste of a bike to ride on flats lol
I went and spoke with Greg at TWE today and have decided to go with Stanz 355's with TWE hubs. Black hoops, black hubs, black spokes and blue nipples Expected weight is about 1500ish and a cost of $899. Should be about 10 days and they will be ready to be picked up
