    ... and if we just ... Saved hundreds on a custom frame!

    by keeping my Rig………….. The temptation almost got me to order a Niner, Walt etc… but I simply love this frame. The Genesis Geometry fits me perfect and the aluminum is stiff as heck. Scandium would have been overkill for me (I run a Thudbuster) and do not race. Just a Clyde that loves SS’ing!

    Dumped the money saved into a Charcoal Blue powder coat, Hadley hubs w/ Stan’s Prototype Olympic Rims, Thomson Stem, Carbon bars, Blue Hope Brake Plugs and Boone Chain Ring (on backorder should have it in a week or so). I also set the fork to 100mm.

    That looks great!

    Those are some sweet upgrades though I can't figure why you'd ditch the Avid mech brakes for hydraulics

    it's always more fun upgrading a bike with bunches of stuff than just getting a new frame (for me, at least...especially a frame i love...my Inbred)

    how dare you do something so logical and incredible to boot! you are going to ruin it for fools like me who dont have any grey matter left to make rationale upgrades to already existing bikes

    How do you like the Thudbuster seatpost??

    I just picked one up for my Soul Cycles Hardline, but haven't even opened the box yet. I think it would take out a lot of the harshness of the Soul's ultra stiff ride feel though. Lemme know how long you've had yours and how you like it.

    It rocks! Highly recommended. Spend the time to dial it in and it will put a smile on your face. I have had mine for 8 months

    404?

    What's the "404" mean/designate on the side of your rim near the valve? Just curious. Sweet Ride! I love me some Fisher bikes.....

    Thuddie..

    Thudbusters are great on hardtails..

    My thuddie gets more comments and questions than anything else on my bikes.

    People come up to me and ask.."hey, what is that thing under your seat?"

    All the thuddie needs is some rebound damping and it would be perrrrfect.

    Maybe here???


    Poll: Who would buy a steel spring cart with rebound for ThudBuster?

    Be good if this worked out. Thuddies on hardtails with some rebound damping... yum..

    It is inevitable ...

    they come in a variety of colors, and lever blades and other hardware are available in unique colors as well. I can't find the page but I remember they came in a variety of colors similar to the Chris King range.
