    Spruced up some things on the Outcast

    Just thought I would share,

    First up the pics:



    From left to right:

    • Bontrager 29er Race Wheels
    • SRAM chain
    • Halo Hex Key skewers XL
    • Surly 20t Cog
    • Shimano PD-M540 Pedals

    This was all coming from the stock Outcast bolt-on Rims, HEAVY no-name 1/8" chain, 20t garbage Dicta, and heavy ragged CB Mallet C's.

    Just for kicks, I weighed the bike on my digital scale and it read 24.4lbs!

    I love my bike,

    Don't have better pictures yet, because my 50mm makes full shots a little hard in tight places. And I shot these just when it was getting dark during overcast.



    Thanks for commenting all,

    I have a check up for my elbow tomorrow, and I am hoping that I have the green light to start riding hard again.

    How does that Exotic Alu fork ride?

    I'm considering buying the Outcast 2010 model and replacing the dart with it, but I'm concerned that a rigid aluminum fork might be too rough off road...

    Funny you should ask.

    I just put back the old "Cromo" fork that came stock on the Outcast simply because I could not feel comfortable riding like a jack-a** with the eXotic fork. Contrary to popular belief the Alu eXotic fork actually has ALOT of "give" to it and was not stiffer than the stock Cromoloy fork; that is why it scared me to be honest.

    I just could not see myself doing any drops with the eXotic fork.

    It's your teeth, but I would suggest spending the extra for the Carbon eXotic or get your self a steel variant (lighter than your Dart for sure anyway).
