    Vassago Re-assigned. I built a Karate Monkey and the Vassago needs a new mission. Currently fully rigid steep gearing at 34x18 for NC. I rode both bikes this weekend, and decided the Jabber should be very different than the KM. The KM is set up rigid as well, 2.5 tires, pretty damn fun for NC singletrack. My thoughts are this:

    SSCX-Drop bars disc brakes
    Race-y set up, 2.0 lightweight roll-fasts
    but thats the extent of mt creativity. If you want to share your input please do.
    -rides bikes for fun.

    I'm thinking about picking up another frame to do a balloon tire cruiser.

    Which is lol, since I totes had a second one, but stupidly sold it.

    Course, right now I'm in the middle of 2 blingy kids bike builds.

    And I need more canned goods.

    And No one can ever have enough ammo.

    Maybe if this train wreck holds out another year I'll build it.
    crap! i gotta learn to climb.

    27.5 29'r

    I know this is a 29r forum but I put 27.5's on my Jabber and am really loving it. I'm 5'9" ish and really never got used to the 29 wheels. I fell more times on it than I have on any bike. Mostly in short tricky sections. I know the bottom bracket is low and I have gottn a few pedal strikes but it really handles well now.The first pic is a blurry cell phone. The second is on a sweep trail we have here.

    Top photo doesn't reflect the current state so the bottom one adds the new additions which are bars and stem.

    Large Jabber
    Sunringle Black Flag Comp tubeless
    Ardent 2.4 up front and Nevegal 2.2 in the back
    XT brakes
    XT cranks
    Surly ring and cog
    Odis Fork
    Kent Eriksen sweet post (Ti)
    Carver Prybar (Ti)
    Truativ 60mm stem

    I think I'm going to turn this into my race bike for the next season.

    Looking for suggestions for fork and wheelset.

    I was thinking Sid XX. Should I do 80mm or 100mm?

    Need the most help on wheelset. I need light and stiff but something able to handle my weight. I'm 6'2'' and 230/240 right now. During race season I'll probably be down to 210/220 (lighter if I take it serious).

    So if money were no option, pick a fork and wheelset for a Clyde racing on the east coast.

    I ran my Jabber at 100mm and now my VerHauen at 120mm. Love how these bikes handle with just that extra slack and a short stem.
    Pedal through it!

    How would you say it handled differently?

    Jabber was a 16". At 100mm with a 90mm stem the steering had too much "flop". Shortened to 80mm and was neutralized mostly. My Verhauen is an 18" with a 50mm stem and it is rippin'.

    Longer travel fork slackens the head angle to about 69.5 which I think is perfect for my local trails (central texas, very chunky) and raises the BB just a touch to help with pedal strike.

    That thing looks familiar I hope she is treating you well.
    Fork: really light = Niner carbon or some other full carbon setup. For squishy go with a Reba or Sid set at 100mm. The Sid is lighter

    Wheels: Arches with nice hubs. King, Hadley, or Hope. DT Swiss if you want really light, but less POE. Even the Stans ZTR single speed hubs are decent. A good buy for the money. The other option is Chinese carbon laced to any of the above hubs.
