    I'm using a Barley with the SQR block. There's quite a lot of front/back sway, particularly going uphill, as the bottom of the bag sags down below the point where the SQR supports it. No side to side sway though. Has anyone else encountered this and fixed it?

    I’m after a fashionable “Gravel” bike. Before make use of our newly increased C2W limit and put a deposit down on a Secan, thought I’d check here.

    Basically after a Fairlight Secan, Mason Bokeh, or something else similarly nice that’ll work with a range of wheel and tyre sizes. Still need to work out the exact sizing options but something around 580mm stack, 390mm reach with some flexibly either way sounds about right. Would consider anything from a frameset to a full build.

    Thanks!

    It was probably 1-2mm max, only on the elbows of the spokes at the hub flange. I've found a random washer in my garage to put on the NDS axle, which appears to have fixed it. Obviously the washer is smooth rather than knurled like the outer locknut is, so it remains to be seen whether I get any issues with it slipping. @velosaurus - is this what your solution looked like too? Any issues?

    Looks cool! Think yours is the later model with round tubes and slightly different dropouts?

    My On-One forks seem to be fine with my cx wheels (Formula hubs), but I’ve just noticed that with my 650b Fulcrum 7s driveside spokes somehow rub against the inside of the fork (not the actual carbon tube, but the chunky metal dropout).

    Not entirely sure what I can do about it, maybe a little washer on the DS axle might space it out enough, or file the metal bit of the dropout slightly?

    Been thinking about what to do with the clear coat, as it's quite tatty in places and raw brushed ti looks much better, but I don't know how thick it is, or how much effort it is to remove.

    I've picked up a pair of On-one forks, which look to be a knock-off of the RC31 design. I know the RC31s had a rider weight limit, but I shouldn't be hitting anything too gnarly on this bike. Saw this on Cotic Soda recently which, along with your excellent build, is the inspiration. Although mines on a bit more of a budget!

    Finally accumulated most of the parts so I can start putting together this Rock Lobster Ti frame. Can't quite keep up with @ectoplasmosis levels of ano madness, but going for a similar neo-retro Ti build.

    Plan is for rigid carbon forks, 1x11 drivetrain, 650b wheels with "gravel" tyres and flat bars. Still trying to work out the optimum bar/stem dimensions. I've also got a pair of 26" Hope/Stans wheels with proper MTB tyres which should get me through the mud a bit better.

    I might have a pair of S500s. Will have a look through the garage and PM you.
