    Thats with Chris King hubs and the Stan's Crest Tubeless Rims.
    You feel it more in the front but the 72 point engagement rules. They are like running on Rolls Royce with the tubeless. Could be lighter if you went 26 rims.

    The Tune seat I mentioned is a bit wider and likes to eat cheap shorts a bit more. Its really a works for you or not seat. Lucky for me it fits like a glove and the 85grams of weight is nice side effect.

    Will keep all posted on the wheels, or if anyone else has managed to get the tires in I mentioned please chime in.

    I do remember someone in this thread with a solution but cant remember what it was or who.

    If you do read through all the posts let me know, my 2012 solo will be arriving next week

    Can't share the link, because I haven't 10 post yet.

    Perhaps this will help.

    Any way I can get the handlebar about 1/2" to 3/4" higher?

    It looks like that one piece stem/bar affair on my Bad Boy Fatty 4 prevents this?

    Any ideas, or is it a case of new stem and bar?


    Cheers

    You got all the spacers below the stem so don't think it will go any higher, but could easily be lowered.

    Would imagine a different stem and bat would be the only way to do that.

    Hi everyone, need advice:
    My BBU '05 was stolen, and I am considering a (new?) BBU'08 (on sale obvious), and the current BB1 (gulp on price but a bueaty!) or BB5 (similar to the price of the BBU08).

    Any thoughts? I haven't been following the upgrades so am not quite sure how best to compare. ('08 looks similar to my lost BB... but I am not sure if it's a good buy relative to the current BB5 with a solo fork..)

    Thanks!

    Hey dudes,

    I hope to get my BB5 this weekend.

    Congrats to MTBKOP and Rotund on their new rides!

    Do you all live in the US? I think Cannondale just started shipping out to bike shops again, correct?

    A few shops told me that a Bad Boy would not be available from Cannondale until about the 10th of this month. So since you guys got some brand new rides, Im hoping that mine has been shipped out to the shop already. I really wanna ride this weekend!

    Ich fahre ein 2012 BB3 und bei mir klappt folgende Variante:
    Curana C-Lite Schutzbleche.
    Beim vorderen Schutzblech ist die überflüssige Seite der Strebe abgeschnitten, ziemlich genau am äußeren Rand des Schutzbleches - vielleicht einen halben mm über das Schutzblech außen überstehend (das ist wichtig! denn das Schutzbleche wird nur so in Position gehalten. Schneidet man zuviel ab, hält es nicht mehr...)
    Aus der U-Form der Strebe ist also eine L-Form geworden.

    Da das Schutzblech nur an 2 Punkten befestigt und das obere Befestigungsblech für die auftretenden Verwindungen nicht steif genug ist, habe ich ein Edelstahlblech (um Rosten zu vermeiden) mit ungefähr 1 mm Stärke und in passender Breite zu dem oberen Befestigungsblech (zwischen Gabelbrücke und Schutzblech) aus dem Baumarkt besorgt. Ich musste es natürlich auf die entsprechende Länge kürzen und ein Loch an der richtigen Stelle für die Schrauben bohren (das Bohren eines Edelstahlbleches sollte nur mit einem scharfen Bohrer vorgenommen werden, sonst bohrt man ewig. Man taucht ihn zwischendrin in Wasser um ein überhitzen des Bohrers zu vermeiden. Natürlich nur den Bohrer, nicht die Bohrmschine ;-) )
    Ich hab also das am Schutzblech befestigte Blech durch das Stück Edelstahlblech verstärkt bzw. auch noch eine Verlängerung dadurch erreicht.
    (Was ist es kompliziert, das hier alles genau zu beschreiben... Warum muss man denn 10 postings haben, bevor man aussagekräftige Fotos online stellen kann...???)
    Ich hoffe, ich hab alles genau genug erklärt, sonst meldet euch bitte, bevor ihr was verschneidet und ich schick Bilder.
    Ich hoffe, das hilft weiter...

    This is what I just said:
    (Was ist es kompliziert, das hier alles genau zu beschreiben... Warum muss man denn 10 postings haben, bevor man aussagekräftige Fotos online stellen kann...???)
    I don't have 10 postings yet and so I can only write...
    Do they allow me to send pics directly using private message?

    By The way: did anyone here mention before that the (2012) solo rigid flexes? It thought I had bought myself a nice piece of technology. It's so disappointing find out my fork does only look supreme... I'm used to slalom between cars in traffic jams, wheel hop on sidewalks if necessary. But with the solo rigid it's getting dangerous: each time I cross a gutter it flexes to the right. When going down a hilly street or a blow on a windy day hits me control over the bike feels much different. Has this been with older solo rigids, too?

    @gb981: are you sure it's a new 2008 BB? They are very rare (the last BB handmade frames). So buy it if you can.

    Mine is a 2011 model and I find my solo rigid fork exceptionally flex-free. Stable, stable, stable. Even when using full power of the xtr brakes.

    Hm... maybe I'm mixing up the names: isn't the solo rigid the lefty without suspension? How can you attach a cantilever brake to it?

    Ok, got my 10 posts... NOW I can show you what I'm talking about. I need help though: how can upload a pic? When clicking the pic image it says I have to enter the url. Does this mean I have to upload the pic somewhere else and then enter the link? Or how can I upload my BB here?
