    So which one do you prefer, the Carver or the Sarma?

    I haven't ridden the Sarma yet so I can't really speak in terms of reliability. I also got the fork at a huge discount and dont have to swap my lower headset bearing so it was a no brainer to give it a shot. If buying new, id stick with Carver. Wouldn't surprise me if they have a thru axle obeast fork soon

    Thank You Bob

    Went tubeless and total weight came down to 27.8 lbs

    Not bad for a steel frame

    I just need few more matching red items, found out that KMC has Red/Black chain and also i need 29.6 seatpost clamp in Red which is hard to find.

    I have two sets of rims, the ones on the bike right now are Velocity Dually laced to 616 red hubs and the other set that i have is Schlick Northpaw-s 47 laced to black 616 hubs and Sapim double butted spokes.

    The Northpaws are little lighter by maybe 100 grams for both.
