  • Thanks. There's some decent moments in there and I am slowly dialing in my framebuilding setup.
    I need some better arbors for my holesaws which I'll order next time I order materials and I need to save up for a foot pedal. Pulse is great but I need a bit more control and flexibility moving around joints.

  • The clamping mechanism for the steerer is a really nice touch

  • Thanks but I can't take credit for that. It is common on early 90s stems. This one is infact a GT 130mm 1 1/8" stem for 25.4 handlebars. But I needed 31.8 bars and a shorter stem for this:

  • Just Googled a bit. It is called a GT Flip Flop stem apparently.­ic.php?f=3&t=171652

  • There is another GT stem design which caught my eye.
    Stupid clamp system but there is potential in stealing the tube mitrering concept and redesigning it for current needs.

  • I had a Kurve a while back and although it was very comfortable I did crack the carbon shell after a while. I am around 72/3kg.

  • So I've heard this a couple of time now. Probably not a wide choice for my size then

  • Have seen many cracked ones cheap on eBay but have been wanting to try one myself still.

  • I had a test go on this last night. It wasn't any better than my flites. So I'll probably pass it on. Two friends have expressed interest in it, but if they don't want it you can have it for peanuts.

  • Very kind of you sir

  • Speaking of things I need to shift.

    I am having to sell this frameset. I am not going to find time to race cross this year and I need cash for more framebuilding equipment. Let me know if you are interested.

  • What are you asking for it?

  • Mmm I am not sure what to charge. Forks were redic price back in the days but hard to sell now I guess. Maybe 200gbp for forks, frame, seat clamp + shipping.

    Edit: I could sell it complete or most parts together. But I need purple headset and spacers for my road bike and Thomson seat post for my ssmtb and flite for my cargo bike. Was going to use the wheels on my road bike as well maybe.

    But Salsa Cowchippers, 3T stem and all other bit could be sold I guess. If you want it complete or as parts or whatever just get in touch. I just need to shift it as I can't see myself finding time to ride it.

  • speaking of things I need to shift

    Do you have the geometry to hand?

  • It is a Vision Crosstrail frame. I cant find any geo charts online.

    I think seattube is 73 degrees and headtube is 72. Top tube is 580mm ctc I believe.
    I can do a measure up tonight if I am lucky or on Monday.
    I'll do a proper sales thread as well and confirm geometry.

  • Interested in the cowchippers if split.

  • Are you interested in selling your stayer single speed cx frameset? Keen if so

  • No sorry. I made that into a geared rando

  • Probably better just get another geekhouse...
