    How she sits right now. Finally got the double guard for my MDS (not in pic), sprocket stalls are my jam.

    Fixed my voodoo monstrosity as gears are just not for me. Still needs a lot of things*, but that can wait will student loan comes in

    *BB, urgently. bearings so dead it wobbles about 3mm either way despite the cranks being tight
    tyres, probably something 40ish, semi-knobbly
    grips
    shorter stem
    saddle
    wheels eventually as these are outrageously shit and i've already buckled them just riding over roots in bushy park

    other than that, she's dead good fun. ratio as about right for mild offroad i find so i'll be sticking with it.

    rebuilt rear wheel with silver spokes to match the front. first time I've actually had 48 spokes in my rear wheel in about 2 years. I give it a week...
    put my gland back on NDS on the rear, need to find a way to mod my alloy ratchet guard to run them both.

    I've U'dTFS and can't find the answer to my question:

    Will SKS Longboards fit on my Large 2012 Pompino frame running 32c Paselas, and if not, which SKS 'guards will give me the best coverage?

    I had longboards on my large pomp (bathroom blue) with 32 randos at various different chainstay lengths. no problem at all. IIRC they're specced at 35c max, but I would imagine it would be pretty tight on 35c.

    longboards on same frame/fork with 28c marathons here

    edit: welp, I was wrong. Longboards apparently go up to 45m (see below)

    scrap that.

    had a much better idea. will get a bolt on disc cog for my voodoo with front disc brake.

    Just had a look now, putting the wheel the wrong way around in the drops (assuming rotor = cog sorta thing) the chainline don't look too far off.

    So once I place an order with velosolo (19t cog, 42t chainring) it should look like this

    but with less cables and sprockets.

    Aye, get that a lot. Just can't be doing with low seats.

    I actually raised it as it's my only rideable bike at the minute and I need to get to work tomorrow, and even with the seat as it was I still got sore knees. Put it up so I could get better leg extension and it's surprisingly fun to ride so it's staying.

    Raised/levelled my saddle because it makes pull up bar to manny easier. and because i can. and sit down wheelies are the best.

    18cm of post on show, level with crossbar. dreamy.
