    I installed a 26T wide-narrow chainring from Absolute Black on Friday. I rode about 70 miles with it over the weekend and it seems to work pretty well, the cassette is a 9-speed 11-32 cassette and I am using a 10-speed KMC super-light chain. I'll probably upgrade the rear to an XX-1, but wanted to get the front sorted first. So far, I am pretty pleased with the single chainring in the front.

    The seat post doesn't seem to flex any more or less than the Salsa post - I guess that's good or bad depending on what you want. They have some scary light components but I chickened out on the price and durability although the quality seems very good

    Does my Krampus count?
    Surly Krampus. New MTB Bikepacking rig. My fargo will be up for sale. by mbeganyi, on Flickr

    Seen here from my test ride. I rode home, let the dog out, put my pedals and saddle on the bike, rode back to the shop, then brought it home.

    Porta-Pack test

    It looks good. At $30 I'm sure it doesn't come up to the quality of the $100+ options. I will test when I receive my Nightrain Bullet early November. I'll look at how waterproof, tear resistant and how much stuff I can get in it and show a pic.

    Hollywood fat wheel trays for my Swagman rack. I'm not sure if the Hollywood rack uses slightly larger tubing but the trays are a bit loose on my Swagman. The plastic pieces in the Hollywood tray are about 1 mm wider.

    I'll probably use shim to keep it tight.

    Got those Hollywood trays couple weeks ago. They fit slightly looser than the OEM trays. This is on a Swagman XTC-4.

    Btw, do those crossbars to where you slide trays move around a bit or are they dead solid? Mine have lots of movement, especially the outer one and I'm thinking of returning the rack. (Or at least getting it swapped with another one)

    Thanks, mine moves side to side and up and down as well and slowly getting worse. Basically, crossbar does not fit into the main rack arm snugly and has lot of play. Both of them, but outer one more than the inner one.

    I will be exchanging mine as soon as I get a chance.

    Also, recently acquired a size small white Surly Pugsley frame courtesy of The_Aaron, put all my components (except for the seatpost) from my 9:zero:7 onto it. Built it up for my son’s 10th birthday… which interesting enough is on December 1st, yet the bike has been sitting completely built for about in a month in almost plain view, and he still hasn’t noticed it.

    Thanks! This is the third bike I’ve built up for my sons. I always put proper components on their bikes (Raceface cranks/bars/BB, Chris King headsets, Hope hubs, custom-built wheelsets, Oury lock-on grips with andodised ODI lock-on ends, etc.) since kids shouldn’t have to ride heavy-assed bikes from department stores, and the extra anodised bling (cranks/bars/chainrings, etc.) factor makes the bikes even more aesthetically palatable to them. I originally bought the tanwall Nates for my own fatbike, but I bought myself a Borealis Echo so naturally once you’ve gone to the 4.8” tires, the 3.8” ones seem like going back to skinnies.

    My Pugs is now (hopefully) winter-ready. Started out as a Surly-Toob D4 front / Nate Rear. Now a split-tube tubeless D5 front / D4 rear. Retro-reflective blue tape as a rim strip to match the frame. As long as the tubless conversion doesn't leak, should be good. Should know tomorrow...

    Thanks. I'm really hoping that the tubeless conversion reduces some rolling weight... compared to my Cross-Check this thing is a TANK.

    Best part of the bike: Splurged on the 135mm SON Dynamo Hub + Luxos B headlight. Lights without batteries are AWESOME (and the LED lights are really bright these days).

    Worst part of the bike: The Mud Shovel fenders are bleah. Hoping to replace them with Big-O Fenders at some point.

    Sure. My experience is from last winter's commute in snow and slush. I am used to full-length SKS Chromoplastic fenders on my Cross-Check, and I commute as close to daily as I can manage.

    The Rear fender did an OK job keeping my back clean, so that part is definitely a "good job." However, both fenders failed and keeping critical parts of my bike free of snow and slush. No matter how I adjusted the front fender, my chainring and front derailer were both covered in mud and slush. The fender's too narrow at the bottom to actually keep anything off that part of the bike, and is too short besides. I can slide it down to help a little bit, but it's just too narrow to do much. It does an OK job of keeping stuff off my pants above the ankles, but that's about it.

    None of this is really too surprising, given the design of the fenders... they're just not full coverage. And with the corosion of the salt, and the fact that freezing snow and slush will lock up the derailer (not to mention the chain), I just really need something better on my commute bike.

    I spent the tail end of the winter (last 3-4 weeks) once 90% of the snow had melted riding my cross check with studded marathon winters; That worked very well to keep everything clean. I don't think there's anything wrong with the mud shovels, just a mismatch of hopes and reality. If it's not a full coverage fender, don't expect full coverage.
