    I was standing there BSing with JP when these photos were taken last August in Lincoln, NE.

    Salsa Powderkeg 1x11 Tandem ? #unlearnpavement

    Bobby Wintle custom built this Powderkeg last year. I love it, but my pockets aren't deep enough and our motors aren't strong enough for a 1x.

    I am looking hard at replacing my rigid fork with a suspension fork. Salsa recommends 100mm travel with a 45mm offset. So far i have confirmed that mrp's ribbon is available with these specs and boost spacing. Are there other options? I'm struggling to find specs on the lyric or fox 36...

    I would think that the ribbon should work very well for the Powderkeg. Lyric and Fox 36 are only made with much longer travel and would have to be modified to get down to 100mm of travel, if that is even possible
