    I just really dig the Thudbuster, it sucks up those little rocks and roots and makes it easy to keep laying the power down. Makes my back feel better after riding hard for an hour or two. Not good for big hits but it's just a seatpost after all. Maybe a dually would be just as good but when I stand up this bike really jumps and the duel sussy bikes I've ridden have been better at....how do they say...."sitting and spinning?" Plus it's simple, cheap, and light, gotta love that.

    So without the cover my legs rub on the bumper and holes form in my shorts....with the cover on they slide and do OK.

    I think shiggy's point was that if you have a suspension seatpost, then the bike isn't a rigid and therefore shouldn't be posted here...
    now the trick question : is a Slingshot with rigid fork considered a rigid?

    i'll have to take some better pics.

    fork rides good altho i don't have much to compare it to. the blue fork has much more clearance than the other forks on the black/grey and pink bikes. that WW LT has mucho room in the blue fork and in the pink bike it barely fits.

    Thanks mwills. I've got another Soulcraft Holy Roller/ fork on order, just wondering wha the ride is like. I suspect it may be on the stiffer side of the spectrum given the unicrown design. Mine is going to be 80mm corrected though, so it may be a bit softer... We'll see.

    my blue fork sure looks beefier, because of the added width and added tire clearance. given the appearance, i can't really tell any difference between my forks. i would agree that a corrected fork (longer blades) should ride a bit softer.

    did i read that somewhere around here? that you were doing a drop bar frame? if you want my notes lemme know...

    Funny that he ignored the two even less rigid bikes just a few posts up......

    goofy angle. i'll work on that.
    the handposition in the drop is 50-60mm below the saddle. about the same, a bit lower than my flat bar bikes. worked with soulcraft to fit this bike as close as possible as my others. worked just like i was hoping. i'll put my hands on the hoods about 1% of the time on a ride and the tops maybe .01%.

    Strong!

    This is my pendle/touring bike. Just testing out some bigger tires, and will try it out on a local XC-race tomorrow.

    That's nice and all, but the rider behind you went TOPLESS!!
    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Yeah, pink is fast. I won 1st SS and overall on it yesterday in a 6 hour solo. That was my first race on it (and 1st suspension-less ride longer than an hour).

    My urban identity crisis Monocog. Profile BMX cranks, Odyssey chainring, 28/17 gearing (I might go a bit higher), Hope Pro II rear hub with 36 hole Rhyno Lite. Schwalbe Big Apples and Avid BB7 brakes. Oh yeah, and ODI Longnecks!

    Future plans are to replace the front skewer with a bolt-on, if not a more radical upgrade of the front wheel (trying to keep my spending under control). And maybe some different handlebars. I need to go check out some different styles in person.

    you may want to go with

    a really short, block type stem (downhill) if you really want to make it look like an urban crusher. yea that frame/fork is so versatile and bulletproff. i have one as well and i've configured it in a similar manner as well as a back up cross bike with light wheels and drop bars. cool!

    I've considered it, but then I realized that it would mostly be for looks. Block stems are heavier and is all that mass really necessary? I don't think I've ever heard of broken stems being a very common problem.

    OK - Here's my Raleigh XXIX that I changed over to a 2 x 9 for the Telluride-to-Moab trip. Got home last night. This is the bike up against a tree a few minutes before the afternoon thundershower, Columbine Hut in this instance! The bike worked fantastic for the trip - very comfortable and it ran the Ute Creek Trail a couple of days later with 30+ lbs of gear on it and let me ride almost the entire trail... Except for one section of super-steep climb on one of the loose chutes, a couple of dabs on the first rocky descents into the creek and one very large get-off jamming down a mildly technical section (tree branch snagged my bar-end and I got to do my Superman impression for a second or so before leaving DNA on the rocks...) Changing it back to SS in a day or two but I sure liked this set-up. May have to get another to keep it rigid and geared...
