    I got all caught up on that video. Vittoria Air-Liner, I would like to try it if I could.

    I just realized all of the non-disc ultra new hubs are flip-flop. Probably only because they can be without that rotor in the way. I mean, regardless of spacing, it's still a very similar hub, or no?

    Sounds like a fun ride, Chaz.

    I think the old track standard is 120mm, that's what my track bike is. 130 is a road standard.

    NDD, I've stuffed a 135 hub in a 130mm steel disc frame (because 130 disc hubs don't exist anymore. Apparently it was a thing for about 10 minutes).

    The frame was fine with it (I wouldn't try it with an aluminum frame), but the dropouts didn't sit perfectly flat against the hub. So even if you cold set the rear triangle you should probably have the dropouts re-angled.

    I can my SS cross bike this way for over a year, and I'm not gentle, but never experienced any negative effects. That bike was never going to be a long term commitment for me so I never bothered to do it right.

    It looks like the hubs are all alike. I have a double freewheel on a flip/flop hub that's working fine.

    What's the bike?

    Thanks for ther input, y'all. Just ordered a takeoff set of surly hubs that were never used for less than the price of one hub.

    It's a 1991 Bridgestone MB-5, so not a fancy version, which is why I don't mind losing the drivetrain components, but is a pretty good cro-mo frame, even though it's one of the TIG welded Taiwanese produced models. Been fun riding it around for the last week.

    Rode a trail yesterday that had a good bit more rock than what I've ridden on my Pedalhead so far. Pretty sure I put Huck Norris to the test, and he delivered.

    I met up with Hawgzilla yesterday for a morning ride, it was a beautiful day out in the hills! 17 miles and a 2200' with around a dozen different species of wildflowers in bloom, some blazing blue skies too!





    The Mustard is tall this year!



    Not a ton of California Poppies on the ride, but there was one sizeable patch,

    Yep, called a Bib Mousse, or just a mousse, they have great riding characteristics on a dirt bike, but I do feel they increase rolling resistance. When you instal them you cover them with lube so they can slip inside the tire, if you don't lube them they will heat up and breakdown super fast.

    The "Tubliss" system is pretty rad, with a heavy carcass tire you can run zero PSI in dirt bike tires. Its basically a road bike tire that sits in the drop center of your rim, you put the dirt bike tire on over it and inflate the road bike tire and it presses the bead of the dirtbike tire out against the rim, and seals it, there is a second valve stem to then put air in the dirt bike tire, I had the Tubliss system on an older dirt bike, was great, made tire changes easier and you could run super low pressure.

    Thinking about it, I guess I don't know why I want to rebuild the wheels with new hubs, except that they are almost 30 years old...I could just put a threaded freewheel in place of what I have on there...But that would be another way to shirk actually learning another skill...But it would be cheaper.

    I just ordered some 1 1/2" closed cell foam backer rod to make some DIY foam inserts. $22 to my door for four 6' pieces of foam, enough for 4 tires. I ordered from here, https://www.bestmaterials.com/detail.aspx?ID=17487 They are 38mm in diameter, the guy in the video said he used 40mm. They also have 2" foam rod, 51mm in diameter. https://www.bestmaterials.com/detail.aspx?ID=15597

    Where'd you guys ride, Cheeseboro?

    That backer rod looks pretty good, can't wait to see how you do with that stuff! I was thinking about foam densities on my ride today, some of that stuff like the pipe insulation might be to weak, it might slice easily on a rim strike.

    I wouldn't want to mess with 30yr old wheels, save the cheddar and slap the freewheel on there. You'll be surprised how easy wheel building is one day.


    Still feeling like I'm in decent riding shape, I was charging the trail today, way faster than I've ridden it before, and all the "technical" spots were like speed bumps.

    I heard a loud pop and my bottom dropped a bit, guess my saddle was a bit loose, or "Things that happen after you've been on a FS for a while". I need to work on my pedaling technique.

    Korn, my position now is to leave and ride them as is until I can build wheels. Realized later it's actually a real cassette on there not a freewheel. The rims are solid, so I can't complain. Still really fun to ride but with these older bikes, I can't hello but recognize its more like riding on the bike and less like riding in it. Ya know?


    Glad you got out and were feeling confident!

    Yes, Cheese Burrito, and we included China Flats. We were parked on Las Virgenes road so when were done dropping down the Sheep Corral DH, it was an easy cruise (no climbing) back out to the cars.

    Thanks!

    Those older bikes are fun to rig up with cheap parts and remove drive train components to run ghetto SS, but that's about it. I'd probably take the cassette off and either get one of those SS spacer kits or rig one up like I did on my old Kona Lava Dome, I think I used some PVC for spacers there.

    I think all that climbing I did out there is what's gotten me into better riding shape. I want to climb MOAR!!!

    My condolences OneSpeed. Hopefully the framebuilder can put you at ease in time. That said, stop being so hard on your bikes. Mmmkay?
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    OS, sorry to hear of your loss.

    But, we all know that nothing wears through frames and components like a SS and it's not like you can pedal one of those gently.

    Pics please?

    This is no longer amusing. Really. I'm just super bummed. It's just so unexpected. Why couldn't I have found this in the fall? I would have had all winter to do something about it. AAHHHH.

    This is from when I found it.

    This is from inside the chainstay.
    OCC Bike Thread V14-img_8224.jpg

    It's cracked 2/3 of the way through. There's no going back, it needs to be completely replaced.

    The timing just sucks. The trails are just drying out, first race is in 3 weeks...

    I'm just frustrated that this keeps happening. I thought for sure this frame would be different.



    And I know... It could be worse. Just feeling frustrated.

    In better news, I survived the 45 mile SS race. Completed it in 3:12, which is roughly a 14mph avg. speed. It hurt.

    Sorry to hear about your custom ride and I'm assuming it is your race bike. I hope it gets repaired soon.

    This is the most fun thing I've heard all day, tell me more. What race? How much elevation? What motivated you to sign up for a 45 mile race this early in the season? Pics? Why are there not pics? And how big is your trophy?

    Sorry to hear about your custom ride and I'm assuming it is your race bike. I hope it gets repaired soon.
    We'll see. It's not going to be cheap, or fast. Yes this is my short course race bike, but also my favorite solo ride bike, and first custom frame. Did I mention I'm super bummed?

    I'm not giving up that easy. I'm hoping to have the frame repaired. I've already contacted a local frame builder, he actually didn't have warm and fuzzy things to say, but I don't plan on retiring the frame yet... unlike the last one that had to be "field destroyed".

    Well it seems that I'm not unlucky, just stressing frames beyond what they're designed to handle. As one person put it "it's not a matter of if, but a matter of when". That's really disappointing if it's true.

    I'm not sure that's true across the board though. The Surly warranty guy said he's never seen a Wednesday frame fail in that spot and that it's designed to handle a guy that's 300lbs. I'm only 205lbs, and he said I should be WAY in the clear, but I'm pretty "enthusiastic" as I like to say. I stand and power up most climbs. I'm just surprised that this keeps happening.

    Hubs, bottom brackets, and cranks also used to fail on a regular basis. I'm slowly learning that I just need to spend more money on very high quality products (made in the USA which I'm OK with) in order to get a durable product.

    I'm replacing my last non-made in the USA rear hub this week with a White Industries hub. That along with another angular contact ABEC 5 BB will get another bike back in service. Which is good cause apparently the Hei Hei will be seeing more action in the coming months.

    It's cracked 2/3 of the way through. There's no going back, it needs to be completely replaced.
    That frame can certainly be repaired, the only question is if it's worth the cost to you. Sucks that you only have 2 years on it and it needs notable repair :-(

    The SS guys out here are breaking parts and frames commonly enough. Seeing this does not surprise me. I know of a SS guru who can turn you on to the "tried and true " SS parts. That said, things still fail prematurely when put to the abuse of SS, comparatively.

    Right on, Korn. I'm going to doing bathroom repair all weekend so maybe I'll post before and after photos for a project called "how to make a 5' x 7' bathroom not feel like a closet. The previous homeowners did a bad job at that.

    Thanks guys.

    Onespeed, the race wasn't planned. Sold my old redline monocog and got the giant in November. Friend said bring the new ss and do the race with me.

    Didn't get much of a trophy, but had a good time.

    On the upside, we ended up on some old jeep trails. Found a f150 abandoned from it getting stuck in the mud during the middle of the race. People were going / crashing into these massive mud pits.

    The descent after this was pisgahish. Yeah, i just coined that word. Rock drops, roots, off camber, carnage, broken garmin/ wahoo mounts, wet, and fast. My favorite part of the race.

    All the nue guys showed up so it was an insanely fast race. Their first race is next week. The national ultraendurance series is huge here.

    Im in orange.

    Put down 40 miles and 2300' on the road bike yesterday, I had all day, but my right calf was a bit sore so I took it easy. Calf is no worse today thankfully.

    I rarely see a bulky guy like that that is fast. Usually they spend more time in the gym than they do on a bike. I don't know that I've ever come across one at a race.

    Then again, I'm a bit of an outlier myself, on paper I should be good and slow, especially climbing but that's actually my strong suit.

    Edit: Not that I'm calling you slow Rod, (I can't believe you let that guy beat you, wuss!) but seriously don't let it happen again. I'll cut you some slack for the lack of preparation I guess.

    Got out again today on the road bike, another 30 miles and 2500'. I'm meeting a guy in Redwood city tomorrow for some MTBing in "the belmont hills" that he is quite familiar with, I imagine it will be a total hammer fest, and I'll I'll be showing up a bit pre cooked with 70 miles and close to 5000' in the last 2 days, plus I'm at 122 miles in the last 6 days, mostly road miles, but coming out of Idaho winter its a pretty heavy spring. I'm pushing to get some legs in me to be able to have fun in southern Utah/Moab in early May as opposed to going there and suffering!

    Last ride on the MTB was actually with Hawg, but man, it does everything I ask of it! If I break it down to climbing efficiency, tech climbing ability, descending ability (speed and chunk) bunny hop ability, this bike is somewhat better to WAY better at every category compared to my old 2008 Giant Trance. I figured with 20mm more travel up front and 10 mm more travel out back it would be a bit of a dog for bunny hopping, but it hops like a dream!



    I'm certainly looking forward to getting back on it tomorrow! And I'll be spending a couple days on it not far from Downieville in the Sierra foothills on Sunday and Monday with a buddy that lives there, and its supposed to rain there on Saturday so Sunday should be excellent, high of 60* too! I know we'll put down a couple bigger rides, so I'm taking saturday off to show up sort of fresh. He's damn fast, I'm looking forward to getting the brakes hot with him!

    Glad to hear the custom SS will come back after surgery OneSpeed. Have you considered getting a custom frame with a custom yoke now that you have destroyed this and a frame that was built for a 300lb gorilla?

    I think you need a yoke like chromag, myth, or perhaps like Walt has done for the Ultimate Warrior. Perhaps, you could ask about a solid forged driveside chainstay?
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Thanks!

    I was a bmx geek for a few years before I really got into skateboarding, but the hopping skills have thankfully stuck with me!

    There are some great tutorials on youtube that can help out a bunch, that pic is actually a screengrab, here is the slomo video it came from,

    Ha!



    It's exceedingly rare that I ever pull up on my pedals, it's kind of like how fighter planes in WW2 had a horsepower rating, say 1500, but they also had an "emergency wartime horsepower" rating which was 10% to 15% more HP than the normal rating, so if you think you're going to die you can really put the screws to 'er to try to avoid death. Thats how I view pulling up on my pedals! Only if it will get me out a slam/crash/death.

    Here is a pic of me hopping the same bike with my (cleatless) workboots on with clipless pedals This was with minimal runup that was also sort disturbed dirt so form is not as good as the box hop off asphalt.

    Good to hear it!

    Is he local so you don't have to deal with shipping?

    I think you need a yoke like chromag, myth, or perhaps like Walt has done for the Ultimate Warrior. Perhaps, you could ask about a solid forged driveside chainstay?
    I was thinking something like a full-triangle gusset.

    The big question is, will OS go back to Schrader valves after the repair?

    No riding for me today. 3" of rain since the storm started a shade over 12hrs ago. Some gauges to the south are reporting 12" of rain in the same period of time.

    The Tacoma is getting the hitch installed, boss said you can leave early, so hopefully the truck will be ready soon, so I can put my rack and go ride. I wanted to go when they first open, but had a freaking meeting.

    Should have opted for the tow package. I checked that box when ordering my Taco. It includes not just the hitch and wiring but a larger radiator, alternator, transmission cooler and engine cooler. I donít recall how much that option was but itís worth it even if you donít tow all the time. All that helps in mountain or desert driving.

    Depends on the vehicle. Some tow packages include more. Some less. The Colorado tow package, for example, includes a trailer brake controller, even.

    Ha! Not having a towing package on our Pilot was my excuse to the wife for not using our friend's camping trailer. She wanted to tow it on our annual trip to Idaho.

    Ahem, we prefer the term "belligerent raging asshole". Thank you.

    Yes, that's exactly what I have in mind, not quite sure what he has planned yet, still sorting out some small details.

    Nope, I get to ship it coast to coast. My frame is very well traveled.

    Is it ok to have the license plate obscured?

    Bummer it's not going on straight. Just put the bike in the bed if you want to go ride today.

    And yeah, Korn, I have the same rack...it lives on my truck. Totally blocks the license plate.

    I'm surprised I don't get pulled over for it.

    Do you think is the install? I just checked and it looks to be in the right place. The "mouth" of the receiver is what I think its fvkd up.

    Lay a level on it.

    I really don't see how it could be anything else.
