    If you're talking about 1spd,it was a misunderstanding,and on my part,h's kool Not only is he kool,he's driving down from Knoxville come June and he,Andrew,(possibly) Dave and I are piling up the bikes in two rides,heading down to Blacksburg (one of my all time favorite places to ride) on a Friday to ride all day Saturday

    If you're talking about someone else...I musta missed it...

    good to hear man. altho i still might bring my own, unless you got a place that has raspberry snapple. its kinda hit and miss here.

    and sweet on the ride. good to know you can still be a wheel sucker, eh? not too surprised as your a sucker in general .

    so i switched out to a 185 rotor. figured it might help. it wont. i was able to cause rub just by puttin about 15 pounds (if that) of pressure on the fork leg with my thumb. so ill prolly just get used to it. maybe ill get lucky and this one'll fit the scout and the odis wont have this problem (prol not as they are the same fork). still a nice fork and a great purchase. (ty wish i were riding!)

    I think we can accomidate the Snapple (there'll be someplace that carries it ).

    Didn't just hang off his wheel all day (not counting the times I was dead and hacking/coughing from being outta shape ),I ran away and hid on a couple downhill sections

    Bummer on the rubbing...

    have some brake rub due to lateral flex. is this normal? should i troubleshoot or live with it?

    longhaul, you shoulda told me dude was givin ya flak on that budget SS thread. ida set him straight.
    What? Fork's already gettin' axed by the wife? I think it looks fine!

    more of a supporting vote. i want a true blackerwocky. she concurs.

    welp, it was either the 203 rotor or my crappy install. not a whisper after putting the 185 on there.

    sweet.

    Paint it then.

    Glad to hear the brake issue is gone. I used 185mm on it, and it was always solid.

    i really hate to "defile" it. if it fits on the scout ill keep it yellow. if not, i prolly will paint it.

    i think if it were an odis i wouldnt even blink. but since its a pitchfork, im very reluctant to paint it.

    looks like the scouts headtube is 115, not the 130 i thought it was. no way the on-one'll fit, but the pitchfork shouldnt be a problem. i might actually have to run a spacer. i thought i wouldnt be able to swing it, turns out i got plenty of room.

    heres me with egg on my face.

    *super stoked*

    whelp, i guess the r-tech tubing only matters on the exterior.

    i wish they would not imply it doesnt need frame saver.

    cant fault them for my ignorance, i guess.

    im just gonna take it to the shop and have him clean it up. labor rates be damned.
