    First Time SS Build

    This frame has been sitting in my basement for four years now. I've finally cobbled together all the parts necessary to get it on the trail - here's to the first scratches and rock dings on an otherwise brand new frame!

    How do you like those Chronicles??? The tire tread looks awesome. I'm starting the Tour Divide in a month...and I can't decide between the 27tpi Knards or the 60 tpi Chronicles! I've ridden the Knards a bunch and I know that they roll really nicely in all conditions and last forever. I'm tempted by the chronicles because they're a 1/2 lbs lighter (each tire!) compared to the 27tpi knards, and the tread looks really nice for dirt and gravel. My knards are a bit old now and I want to get new tires for the Tour Divide...just can't make up my mind if I want to stick with what I know works...or switch! Thoughts?

    Hmm...I've not tried the Knard in 29+, only the 700x41c on my cross bike. The tires performed well but had issues with so many punctures. The Chronicles are the only tire I've run on this bike. A good friend has been on a Krampus for a few years now and ran the Knards extensively when they were the only thing available. He had a rough go with them and did a long post on here about punctures and Knards that you can look up. Fast forward and he tried the Dirt Wizzard too with similar problems. He purchased the Chronicles after seeing mine and been very happy. Knock on wood, but I've always had great luck with Maxxis tires here on the super sharp rocky trails around Austin.

    Not sure they'd be the best tread for the Tour Divide, but I'd have huge confidence that they'd be tremendously durable. (but don't quote me when you are out there!!

    The 120 tpi knards are pretty frail I've heard, but the 27tpi are pretty bullet proof.
    Surly Knard Review, Velocity Blunt 35 Touring Wheel - BIKEPACKING.com

    The Chronicles look nice 'cause they actually claim to be tubeless ready, and puncture resistant....compared to the knard which is just beefy rubber and no claims for tubeless. That being said i currently run the knard 27tpi tubeless on rabbit holes without issue. Split tube method though...

    I have been running the Chronicle (front only) in this type of a terrain (see below) and it worked very nice. The grip in uphills is tremendous, however cannot judge how much I can attribute it to Chronicle thread and how much to plus tire in general.




    Did somebody ask about Mr Stooge stoppers? Magura MT5, but I have mixed feelings about them.

    Hi guys. Before I spend my hard earned coins, I wondered if anyone has any hands on experience with the Carver Trail 490. It's going on a 120mm recommended frame. Anyone had/got one? Ta

    2007 Monocog

    1x10 drivetrain parts coming next week to make it into a practical Urban Assault Commuter. I know it's not anything special or fancy, but it was my first 29er and bought it new almost a decade ago. I was recently looking to buy something more modern, but decided to make a few upgrades to this one since it fits me so well and has some sentimental value.

    Monocog---->1x10

    Got the 1x10 setup. Took me forever to install and still need to put the final touches on it, but it rides and shifts perfectly. Most intense mechanic work I have performed myself.

    Brilliant! Was there "rigid" category in this race?
    Looks like a surly fork, no? Or sth longer?

    Stock Surly Karate Monkey frameset circa 2011, the last year of canti studs on frame and fork.

    Nearly ended up racing in vets, but the Hardtail cat was running so jumped in that

    I have been riding a 2015 salsa el mar and really like it. This year I am thinking about getting a rigid fork so it is a better do all (gravel etc) bike rather than a single purpose bike. Do carbon forks ride a ton better than steel on the trail or is it mostly about weight?

    I replaced the original steel fork on my Karate Monkey with a White Brothers carbon fork. Both were the 9mm quick release drop out. The carbon fork was slower to respond to steering input and the bike was easier to loft over obstacles on the trail. I think the steel fork may have rode a little softer. In the end the weight loss was the biggest benefit.

    I was involved with the development of one of the major carbon forks on the market. The difference in ride feel between different brand carbon forks was pretty surprising. Not all carbon forks ride the same, and I would say that yes, going carbon could make a significant difference, especially if you notice and care about such things things as compliance and steering response.

    The differences in ride feel between a Norco and Salsa carbon forks on the fat bikes I've owned is also surprisingly noticeable.

    ...I am heavily biased though, so take my input for what it's worth

    Lynskey Ti 27.2/400 seatpost with Enve clamp, 228 g
    Specialized Chisel carbon fork
    1x11 TRSr 9-46
    www.carbonfan.com 30/24 Skyweight wheelset (1290 g)
    Hollowgram crankset, Look S trak pedals
    Wolftooth Camo ring, spacers, topcap
    Paul Boxcar stem, Thomson binder, TRP Slate T4 brakes
    XT shifter/SLX RD
    Santa Cruz carbon 760 bars
    Fabric ergo grips - love these, like ESI Chunky with a fat palm nub on the end

    About 19.5lbs with Racing Ralphs, under 19 with Thunder Burts but those are barely usable.

    My new Custom steel frame. Filet brazed OX Platinum tubing with translucent Blue powder coat, Paragon rockers, Whiskey carbon fork, 180mm XT cranks, Enve handlebars, SLX brakes, Project 321 SS rear hub laced to RF Arc 30 rim, 35mm carbon rim front, 2.6 Nobby Nic front/2.4 WTB Trail Boss rear. Super fun.

    I keep trying to get better pictures, but I'm just having too damned much fun riding to bother stopping for photos.
