Is anyone going to s Wales soon in a car or van? I bought a beast of a new frame and am looking for an opportune moment to go pick it up. It’s a kona process, its yellow, Arup is currently building its wheels.
damn, groovy bike
come bikepacking with us next time!
Damn, that is a good looking bike.
Looking for 3" rise bars with at least 15 degree back sweep that don't weight more than a loaded skip. Something like Hunter Smooth Move. Any one seen anything like it?
Epping early tomorrow am? @Dogs maybe?
maybe, what time? how's the forecast?
Forecast is fine was thinking 9ish
Ace - meet at obelisk about 9am?
I'm 50/50 - assume i'm not coming but will text you in the morning if plans change
Sorry, I'm out sunning myself/dodging the marble sized hailstones/doing 30km climbs in Boulder.
I’m running 10 mins late
Big ride, that. I am done. Thank you @yakut
Thanks for suggesting it here, and for navigating today.
Anyone got an experience with a Marin pine 1 ? Seeing the rigid version come up cheap and fancy it.
some of them had problems with the forks - i think there was a recall
and the spacing at the front or rear (can't remember) was a bit weird
otherwise cool bike
Were they the ones with that weird QR boost standard?
All 2016 and 2017 were recalled due to forks snapping at the crown. They also had a weird axle standard.
This is one of them. It could rocket up in price but collection only which is why I think it may go for cheap.
Edit: This looks too small for me anyway.
That's a 2016, which has a normal (for the time) 135/100 quick release wheels.
Those are the death forks. The reissued forks have three black bands round the bottom to distinguish.
I'm about 90kg in mtb riding gear but want a lightweight (say sub 1600g) wheelset that doesnt flex too much.
Right now I have Mavic Crossmax sl pro wheelset thats around 1500g but often feel the rear wheel flex a fair bit and they go out of true often.
Am I simply too heavy to expect wheels in this sort of weight range not to flex or feel like cheese? Bike is a santa cruz 5010 and the riding I do on it is mostly trail centre stuff up here in Scotland. 7 stanes etc
Carbon wheelset around the same weight likely to feel more solid? Try loose weight instead? I'm not exactly a fat bastard - 6ft2 and could lose 5kg at a push!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
