    Yet another Inbred

    My new Inbred!
    I got a good deal on a partial build through Team Planet X a few weeks ago. Funny, I sold my trials bike (Planet X) and used that money to buy this frame. Hmmm... Anyway, I finally got to ride it today after the trails (okay, trail) dried up.
    It's my 3rd SS, the first two being converted gearies. I have to say, this bike is noticeably more compliant than my Aluminum Rocky Mtn., and not entirely dissimilar to my old Kona (steel).
    I'm happy to be on steel again. Dunno if it's the looong top tube, but the front end has less of a tendency to wander around than my old SS. Maybe that's it. It is corrected for a 100mm fork, and seems to sit a little taller up front. It's been a great bike so far, but that's only after staring at it for a few weeks and riding it once.

    I ran into another SS'r at Green Mtn. today on a black Spot w/vicious fork. Nice guy. No other SS'rs today. Lots of FS bikes though. And in other news, apparently Thunder Valley is getting a facelift and will be on the national circuit next year. Good news for MX fans.







    16" white (duh) Inbred
    Fox Float 100R
    Chris King PINK headset
    Titec 75mm stem
    Race Face 2" riser 28" wide
    XTR levers and V-brakes
    Older skool Ritchey Logic 175mm cranks w/Spot Guard
    Surly/RhinoLite back wheel - Conti Vertical Pro
    (older) XT Mavic 231 - 2.3 Weirwolf <--- the 231 has got the be one of the narrowest mtn rims I can remember
    some Kalloy post
    some WTB seat
    around 24.5 lbs according to my super accurate and precise Target brand bathroom scale
    currently running 34x20

    I had a sweet pair of silver/red spider Caramba cranks to put on there, but after installing rings on it I noticed that it spun a bit out of true. So either the spider is screwed or the taper is out of whack. The tapers aren't worn out at all, but something's not exactly straight.

    Thanks for lookin'.

    The beat part of this bike is the brakes!
    ....or the forks
    ....or the headset
    ....or it's all really nice and i cant decide! Nice work bro!

    NEAT!!! Ahh... steel... gotta love it.

    A photo shoot on a ride on a clear sunny day... makes the CK Pink look purple.

    After seeing it so many times, I haven't learnt what the zip-tie of the stanchions are for?

    During fork setup it lets you know how much travel your getting.

    Zip tie

    is also good for scratching up your knee when you're not looking.
    Some fork manufacturer (Fox maybe?) has put on an O-ring for '05. I think that's a nice clean way to do things. Sort of like the way they do with rear shocks. Maybe when I replace my seals I'll throw on an O-ring so I can get rid of the zip tie.

    Hmm, that headset is looking a little purple. I think Sony digital cameras tend to bias a little towards blue. Thanks for the comments! I think I'm riding again today.

    It's sort of funny, there have been like 3 or 4 new Inbred posts in two days.
    Must be all the "inbreeding".
    Ha ha. Laugh laugh.

    Okay that wasn't too funny.
