Re: Forks

I’d like to add x-fusion forks into the mix. I just fitted a set of Slide 29er forks to my Fargo. £200 brand new. 80-120mm adjustable travel. 32mm stanchions. I was very sceptical but am impressed so far. They are working very well. I’ve dropped the travel with no problems. They have the option for ...

Re: Suspension Seatposts and Stems

That's a very kind offer, I'm 80kg +- 2/3 most of the time so 2.1 at about 25-35 psi, I hope will have some comfort in it without being too draggy. If it doesn't work to well, I'll msg you to see what I could borrow and try out. I’ve been running 2.1 Nano’s at 22-25psi with an all up rider/bike/lug...

Re: Six Moon Designs Deschutes

Not sure if the 8” peg is strictly needed but the front line does take more load than the rest.
If you go on eBay and are willing to wait a few weeks for delivery from China you can get very light ti pegs for much cheapness.

Re: Best Saddle and Shorts for ITT’s and LD XC Racing

Interesting topic. Think the replies just show how personal this is. I go all out for old Brooks leather saddles - they don't wear out. Fargo has a Swift titanium and Krampus a B17 narrow titanium. Related to your other post I sometimes use a USE shock post for 24hr ITT’s when I don’t need a seat pa...

31.8mm for the Tokens. Don’t know how much bulge the Jone’s have but you’ll probably be fine.
I’ve a set I put on my Fargo occasionally. They’re cheap and cheerful but I find they work well enough/are comfortable enough.

Re: Best ss set up

Have used all options for Rohloff rather than SS but the principle is pretty much the same. I’d go with EBB and adj. dropouts in joint first. EBB on a Thorn and Salsa Alternators have been faultless. Horizontal slots on my Krampus are ok but do slip occasionally even with a tug. Getting the wheel in...

Look at the Nitto R14

I have one, it's pretty much the same thing as the salsa, except for the fact you can actually buy it

Re: Six Moon Designs Deschutes

I have the Gatewood which in most respects is like a Deschutes excepting the hood and smaller floor space of the Gatewood. It pitches fine on uneven ground, never managed to pitch mine on anything else. I got mine unsealed and used it a while (including rain) that way. It worked fine with only a bit...

Possible but don’t think that’s the solution I want. I may just end up getting the Sugru onto the fork leg dial to give me a bit more grip :geek:

Remote fork lockout lever. Dropbar options?

What options exist for a fork lockout to fit drop bars either on the 31.8mm or the 23.8mm section. I guess I could use a LH brifter as i’m using a Rohloff but that’s an expensive option even second hand. Maybe a thumb shifter? My internet trawling hasn’t really found anything except a Suntour remote...

Re: What you done t' your bike today

Reduced the travel and ride height of my new X/Fusion forks.

Drilled out the head easily enough and have fitted a screw with a Phillips head instead ...

Re: Those SOL bivvy bag things

I’ve not used mine like that. Mine is mostly used to replace a trad survival bag. It’s a just in case option for me. Slept in it just fine when I did use it on the Kernow 600 audax a few years back on a warm may night.

Re: Those SOL bivvy bag things

Just to add a bit of confusion: I use the SOL Emergency for the same use as Bob and Sean.
It’s pretty tiny and light. Slightly stretchy foilised plastic laminate material. I’ve dossed in it - clothed in summer - and it wasn’t an awful experience.
