    Currently with an ECR and also a Trek Full Stache. Looking at selling the ECR and swapping as many parts over from the Stache onto a new Krampus frameset. Alot of parts i know will go straight over but some i'm unsure and i'm hoping someone here may know?
    Trek has a Descendant GX 12 speed crankset. It has a PF92 BB but will these cranks come straight over to the Krampus with a 68/72 Sram Dub screw in external BB?

    2nd query, Surly say max is 120mm travel fork. Trek has a Rockshox Pike Boost (for 29+ ) fork with 130mm. Will this be an issue?

    Plan is to only run 2.6" tyres and swap the squishy fork out only when i do bike packing trips.
    Otherwise plan to put on 12 speed GX wheelset and drive train, SLX brakes etc straight over.

    Thoughts?
    You won't die at 130, but changing travel on a pike is pretty easy. If you're not looking to break into your fork, any reasonably competent lbs can do it pretty cheap.

    Is that the Surly Riser Bar? If so, do you like it?

    I own a Stanton Sherpa Plus and have loved its manners from day one. My commuter just needed to be freshened up (1st gen Fargo) and I decided to go with another 29+.

    Added some racks for the days I need to carry groceries/mail and a dropper for the days I don't. Add in a custom beckergear frame bag and I have a handy spot for my wallet and coffee thermos.

    Three months of commuting with it - no complaints.

    Krampi? Krampuses?

    I'm lucky enough to have 2 Krampi: a 2014 Krampus Ops which I bought used and modified for bike packing, and a new Bruised Ego Purple trail bike with a Manitou Machete 120mm. I fell in love with the Krampus ride and saved to buy a 2nd/New/Backup. Now I'm thinking of converting my Ogre into my bike packing rig and having the Ops as a single speed. These are the kinds of problems I love, lol.

    Nice rides! Two Krampuses (Krampi?) solves the dilemma I have: I go back and forth between my krampus (mostly stock 2018 version) currently with a Revelation for local trials, vs. putting it on a diet and going back to rigid with a Jones bar set up. A lot of my local rides involve some fairly rough singletrack (Oregon) yet I have a fondness for longer rides/bikepacking trips on dirt roads and some lighter singletrack that are perfectly suitable for rigid (maybe swap for some lighter wheels/tires).

    If anyone has a large OG swapmonster green Krampus they want to sell let me know. I only need the frame/fork, but I may buy a complete if it's not too much $$.
    Safe riding,

    I'm trying to figure out what to do with my OG medium Swamp Kramp. I got the medium because it was to be a tight single track shredder. As the years have gone by I recognize that something lighter with a suspension fork might be better for me and my interaction with the rooty, rocky trails in the Ohio river valley. Plus I'd like to try to race more. Nothing serious, I'm not fast, but races are fun. I could put the Dirty Pickle on a diet (wheels specifically...my rear Rabbit Hole has a hop anyway that my mechanic can't cure) then make it heavy again with a suspension fork. I'd be looking at maybe $1500 or so for all that. OR should I just spend a little more and buy a bike that's better suited to racing and romping...the Kramp kicks my ass (and wrists) when I ride it fast around here.

    Light and rigid with a longer stem would be cool for bike packing/touring duties, but we don't have a lot of off road routes like that around here. HMMMMM

    I just decided to leave the full suspension trail assassin at home and raced my OG Dirty Pickle.

    Nice! So what you're saying is: "toughen up!"?

    Just saying these green beasts can make sweet race rigs. Maybe yours needs a squishy stablemate if she’s beating you up too bad tho.

    Maybe, but I think I might throw some squish and lightness at it because I do like this bike!
