    Fixmeup says, that the following ratios have about 450 mm CS lenght:
    36/18
    35/19
    32/18
    34/20
    36/22
    33/21
    32/22

    So a Krampus SSP rider should choose one of these

    (32/20 has 444 mm, which is too short for a Krampus, or a too long 457 mm CS length)

    You must be fun at parties.

    I said "pretty short" as I don't think I could go any shorter. There is about an inch of fork out left behind my axle nuts. I measured it at 17.75" which isn't short at all. Can't wait to get a custom built up! Short chain stays on a 29+ would rock.

    While this is not a Krampus, but we thought it'd be of interest to 29+ fans. Fresh out of the Monkey Lab, check out this custom Twenty2 Cycles frame we built up with a Rohloff and Belt drive. The goal was to create the ultimate adventure bikepacking build that would also feel capable on speedy singletrack rides from time to time. Read up on the build here:

    Hey all,

    This isn't exactly a Krampus question, but it is a Knard question and I figure y'all are going to be the best real world resource for that. For those who have run Knards on Flow EX rims, what is is the width of the tire at its widest point? Preferably the 27tpi tires, but please share whatever you have. I am asking because I am awaiting my ECR frame, and will be running my current 3x10 drive train, and think I may be able to fit a Knard on a Flow EX with the 3x10. If it fits, it will be close, but whatever.

    Thanks all.

    Finally installed OD cranks to make my Krampus basically what a stock build should be:
    (except for the Ice Spikers of course which are just on for winter)

    Want.
    I love messing with all of the folks around here that have to have flat black everything.

    Long live Neon!

    My bike is heavier than yours - it does not have Carbon or Titanium parts - I love it!

    I noticed a comparison between RH and Dually 29+ rims buried in the comments [look for comment by Jan] section of this ECR blog post.

    Worth a read if you are interested in setting them up tubeless.
    Safe riding,

    Surly Krampus

    No action in the Krampus thread for nine days? Here's an iPhone shot of mine for a bump.

    Is anyone else planning to try one of the OneUp 42 tooth sprockets on their Krampus?

    A lot. That fork and carbon bars made the ride even better, and I can definitely feel the difference with less weight out front.

    Here's a shot without the Instagram filters.

    I think I need to add a Krampus to the quiver!

    Surly Krampus

    Krampus owners... what chainring (size) came on / with your Krampus? Everywhere I've looked, I've seen the factory build is 32t or 34t. Mine is a 36t. I'm wondering if I should look into swapping a 32 or 34 in an effort to make climbing a little bit easier. Thoughts?

    mine came with a 34 but i swapped in a 32. I may go with a race face 30t now that they are out. the 32 is totally doable for me but would like a little lower bailout gear

    Surly Krampus

    I'm thinking it would be good for me to go down to a 34 or 32. I'm still a noob so I don't know much about swapping - would I need to shorten the chain if I stepped down to a 34 or 32?

    Mine came with the 36t chainring, switched it out for the OD cranks with the 39t/26t rings.

    Look at the park tools website for a good tutorial on seeing your chain length. I like to use the big to big + 2 links method.
