    Curry rack is looking good! Kinda reminds me of August Bicycles' porteur bike.

    Starts with a cracked frame, ends up with a super minimalist locking seatpost.
    Love it!

    I did. Setup was a painful, but I didn't had any experience in tubeless at the time.
    Fast and comfy tyres, whether you put an inner tube or not 🙂

    I'm currently running the 48mm version (which isn't advertised as tubeless anymore). It works, and is close to Rene Herse for a fraction of the price.

    English isn't my native language, did I say something wrong?

    Hot AF !

    For years I've been toying with the idea of a fat tyre fixed but nothing existed. I finally "hacked" my Pompino last year, as a proof-of-concept. It works, but it is far from ideal in terms of clearances, and lacks the refinements such as fenders and lights (not to mention quite heavy, not a very "refined" ride)
    Your bike and @cgg's Stayer are exactly what I had in mind : super functional, super clean in execution, absolutely lovely.

    I hope having one made eventually by @Hulsroy and join the club :-)

    Liked his first videos (from about 3 years ago if I recall correctly) where he was sharing knowledge about bearings and bottom brackets. Informative, and much less swearing at the time.

    No experience with those specific tires, but as a general rule, here are a few things to check :
    -is the rim worn in any way (dented or very worn in case of a rim brake model)

    • is the inside clean (no debris on the rim bed, no old sealant, etc.)
    • is the rim tape ok? (no wrinkles, well centered)
    • try seat them with soapy water, "massage" them in place (it helps to identify which part doesn't sit right), then pump to max recommanded pressure.
