    Nice hack, I have a 2015 frameset and was wondering if later ones are any different. Probably will go for the same setup as you then.

    Does the current frame have a mounting hole in chainstay bridge?

    Are rear-facing horizontal dropouts suitable for kid trailer towing?
    I have a 2015 Longitude, would like to carry my child in the future on our tours, just not sure if attaching the trailer will cause axle to slip.
    Would using a bolt-on hub or 10 mm thrubolt like DT RWS prevent that or should I better look for another frameset with thruaxles or vertical dropouts?

    I think the main advantage will be better chain/tyre clearance with 3.0 tyre, enabling 3.0 with 2x drivetrain if one wishes.

    Having ridden SSCX a lot this spring, I have decided to turn my Longitude to 29+ SSMTB. Oh what fun it is! The rollover is amazing and even with 30 mm rims I really enjoy the plus tyres, together with rapid engagement of Halo hub.

    I just have a problem with slipping rear axle, rear is 5 mm QR sadly. I have Tuggnut on the drive side, should I add another one or change for a better QR axle? I have a bolt-on one, but on the side that is supposed to be held by hand (while the other is turned by allen key), it is round and even holding it with material it keeps rotating while trying to tighten it more.

    For steel frameset, is it better to keep all the screws in even unused (e.g. triple fork mounts, attachment for derailleur housing when singlespeed, bottle cage mounts) to stop water and mud from entering the frame, or leave the holes open so frame can dry out easier inside?

    Looking to replace the brake cables in my (rim brake) Singlecross, does anybody have any experience with Clarks Zero-G? I found it here in Poland for less than half price of Jagwire Road Pro. I would like to have some decent-working cantis (Tektro CR720), but not sure if paying twice as much for Jagwire will be worth it.

    The proper adapter is already in place. I also just got a reply from Genesis that 160 is officially approved by them.
    Now one more question - is there any noticeable difference between RT64 and RT70 IceTech rotors?
    I have spare RT64s from previous bike, here I have one RT70, I could get the second one too, if there is any significant improvement. On the other hand, I heard a lot about IceTech rotors being more susceptible to warping, what is your experience?

    I have just received my Equilibrium 931 Disc, I see that the previous owner has used it with 160 mm rotor in the back, while by default it has been 140 (in original spec). Should I switch back to 140 for the peace of mind or can 160 be used just as well?

    EDIT: just got a quick reply from Genesis that 160 is officially approved by them.
