    Kristian Needs a New Bike Stat!!!!

    IMG_4140

    As some of you may know one of our own Kristian lost everything but a few personal items in the fire yesterday including his 3 bikes that I know he loved dearly!

    I cant even begin to understand the devastation that Kristian and his family are going through along with all the other victims of the Black forest Fire.

    I feel so helpless in these situations and was really thinking how I could help. My thoughts are with the power of this forum and the good of the MTB community we can quickly raise some funds and parts to get Kristian a bike of his own to ride. I know Kristian well, and like all of us here riding is part of his soul and is going to have a tough time not riding.

    So what do you got? What can you pitch in? Lets put our heads together wand see what we can build up for him. He rides a medium I was thinking if we could get something built up like his Kona Unit that would keep him satisfied until he is able to make an insurance claim.

    I am in to pitch in $100 towards a new frame and fork to get the ball rolling.

    I have a medium Nimble 9 frame hanging on the wall, it has a dent in the DT and a few scratches but otherwise great, you guys have seen it. Powdercoat is matte black with a little texture.

    Edit - I'll also look through the parts box, see what I can donate.

    Edit #2 - Actually, you can have the frame.

    Jay - will you arrange for someone to pick up donations from Denver area?

    @Skared Nomad is cool but thinking K will want FS 29er

    @ inglus That nimble 9 sounds perfect. And am sure we can get you some funds for it. I also dont mind making a trip up to Denver to get the parts. Also Jpaks Joe is coming down to the springs next Wednesday and could probably send some parts with him.

    @ Shortbus, sweet Keith, some wheels and cranks will be nice.

    Any Rebas 29er forks floating around out there???

    Let's go 29'er if possible. I'd love to be the mechanic on this one when we get enough together. I can go through my work to get good pricing on parts that we can't come up with.

    I'm sure he had insurance so we just need to get him rolling again while his claim gets started.

    I'm pretty sure he lost everything, including all the ancillary cycling bits such as shoes, pack, night lights, helmet...down to the water bottles.

    It's yours then, I'm sure I have some half-worn tires to go along with Shortbus' rims, and some other parts. Will post tonight. Would he go for a SS? I know I have SS rings for shimano cranks and some cogs.

    KMan has forever been overflowing with passion for our local fat tire community, I'm sure I would not be the rider I am today without being introduced to the local area (And the very best chunky trails) by him. Nor would I be connected with the Inflexibles, an amazing group of friendly, social riders that has always been spearheaded by Kman. For that, I thank you Kristian!

    i'll throw down $50, some elixir R's, a set of Flat pedals, a slightly beat up pair of 5.10s and other extras as needed. lets get this thing together!

    anyone that wants to donate but can't get to Kristian directly (maybe because they're out of town or on a tight schedule), feel free to PM me and we can set up a time to meet up and I'll make sure he gets everything ASAP.

    Thanks to everyone for the overwhelming support!

    I can donate cash.
    Also have extra brakes, helmets, and maybe some other stuff I can't think of right now.

    SRTB think your shop could give us a good deal on a complete new bike for Kristian?

    Sorry to hear about K-Man's loss.

    I have a Pushed Reba (straight steerer) to donate if HirschMJ Reba does not come through.
    It is 20mm axle - so dependent on the donor wheels.

    Wow! all I can say is Wow. The response has been unbelievable and makes me proud to be part of the MTB community.

    SRTB (Chris Kuhn) is going to set up a paypal account for kirstian to make it easy to donate $$$..

    So here is what we have so far. I really appreciated HirschMJ donating a FS 29er (extremely generous) but my thoughts are lets focus on building up a HT and let Kman use his insurance money to by his dream squish 29er. Knowing kristain he is going to want at least a 120mm travel bike.


    Frame: Nimble 9 from Luis and Jet 9 from HirschMJ
    Wheels: Arches from HirschMJ , bikepackingdude and shortbus also have wheelsets
    Fork: HirschMJ has QR Reba and Flash278 has pushed reba
    Cranks: ShortBus
    Brakes: HTRN, bikepackingdude, pdubs has elixers
    Pedals: Pdubs has some flats.


    So it it looking like we will just need some drive train and cockpit parts and decide what wheels, forks and brakes to put on. We may not have to buy to many parts so Kristian may have a nice bit of cash to get a new helmet, pads, pack etc.

    Maybe we can set up a coupe collection points for this weekend. I dont mind driving up to Denver and meeting folks to get parts this weekend.

    Do any of the donor wheels have 20mm axle? Pretty sure bikepacking dudes wheelset is 20mm..

    I know kman will want a fat axle over QR...
