    hey chequamagon, if you happen to pass by the Rock Shox tent mind trying to get confirmation on if they will or will not be offering a U-Turn REBA?
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    Great stuff Cheq! And you made it to MTBR's coverage, wow!
    I should have expected that from the Fargo, no-hands stable. You rode the M, right? More fork offset still, slacker HTA. Makes me really consider having a custom fork done for Fargo, something I contempaled before. Longer and more offset, and stick it in an XXL where XL is my normal size, to achieve M geometry, with a taller BB for my longer cranks :-)

    Kinda Looks like the Paralever front end on my BMW mc -- without the structural integrity. Pivot on top and a very frail looking sinlge point of connection on the lower. Seems like that would be awfully loose - sorta float around.

    Selma and King question

    Hello, on the Selma they are running Crossmax wheels. Is the rear a Single Speed or a spaced out 9 speed hub? Hard to tell for sure?

    Is the King BB avaiable in Pink? My wife has to have every none pink part on her bike.....

    Tx!

    The BBs will be available in all ten standard King colors, including their new Brown color. MSRP is TBD.

    I rode a large. Salsa recommends picking the size that you would ride in their other bikes, so since I own a Large El Mariachi, that is what I picked.

    As for your first question, all singlespeeds are. 135mm is the standard mountain rear spacing, which the Selma has. So it will fit any MTB 135 cassette hub, as well as any of the single-speed hubs from King, Hope, etc.

    They did have the King BB there in pink. All colors are available, including the new color which is sorta a dark brown.

    Yes, but is the Rear Hub on the crossmax Single Speed Specific or is it just the standard 9speed freehub with a spacer kit on it? Thanks

    Oh, gotcha. It was a standard set of crossmax wheels with a spacer kit for the freehub body.

    Actually, I bonked at 3pm and had a brat and some beer. We will see how today goes.

    I think you missed the point (what else is new?)

    I took the pictures because it was funny looking. I didnt bother to ask questions because the guy who built it is way smarter than me and I didnt have time to hear about trail figures and actuation angles and that kinda stuff.

    I didnt ride it because I like my teeth how they are.

    I'm sure it could be set up as a woods bike, but my 2 concerns would be chainstay length and rear tire clearance. The spec sheet says 17.9in chainstays, which I think is too long for a good nimble east coast bike. It also says 2.3 max rear tire, so not sure if it will fit something like a Schwalbe Racing Ralph 2.4 or a WTB WW. I like to have the biggest rear tire possible!

    CF - what you seem to be describing is a Sinister Simon Bar set up in single speed moed. That would give you the New England Style Woods bike you speak of.

    OR if you prefer something in steel - I'd recommend looking at the TEd Wojcik Monkey Butt 29er, or perhaps contacting Steve Stickel to see what he could produce for you (he's D.F.L. here on the forums btw).
