Re: Wtd: 100mm 29er fork

Re: Calling all Pinnacle Ramin 3+ owners

Just checked and a 29mm id rim with a 2.6" Specialized Butcher fits fine.

But, I've measured the tyre and it is actually 2.44" at the widest (62mm).

I reckon a true 2.6 would be a bit tight but worth a go.

Re: Calling all Pinnacle Ramin 3+ owners

It'll only just fit 27.5 x 3.0 on the rear so 29+ won't fit at the back.

Re: Changin a rockshox fork from 120mm to 100mm

I'm fairly sure the 29er Pike can't go smaller than 120mm (i have two of them and I've changed the travel a few times).

But I'm probably incorrect!

Free: SPIUK Nervio mtb spd shoes 9.5

Bought these a long time back because they look just like trainers. Problem is they're a size too small. Free to a good pair of feet. Loads of life in them. To be honest I think they're indestructible. I'm based in Farnham and Fordingbridge if you can pick the up. Alternatively I can try to work out...

Re: Hot and bothered

I seem to have regularly undertaken big rides on stoopid hot days (London to Brighton x 2, L2B Off-road, numerous South Downs Way, Pass'Portes... all over 30c). I seem to cope OK, but i get a bit slower. The only time I really suffered was on the SDW one year and my water/energy drink/electrolyte mi...

Re: Calling all Pinnacle Ramin 3+ owners

Yes I've got one nicknamed the Tangerine Tractor. I've done a lot of miles on it. Current guise is 29+ up front and 27.5+ out back. Sort of a semi-fat mullet. I love the fact i can run it singlespeed without a tensioner. I nearly sold it a while back after entering a 'race' in December and strugglin...

Re: What suss fork for a Ramin 3+

I've stuck a RS Recon 100mm on mine before. It won't fit a 3" tyre but it worked OK with a fatter 29er wheel. I've changed my lower cup so it'll take a tapered steerer.

Mines a large and needs a 190mm+ steerer.
