    There are nights I will lay awake staring at the ceiling thinking about the purple Spooky fat bike that was built years ago. If anyone has a line on that beast, hit me up.

    Will,
    So how wide are your carbon rims? Iím running Schwalbe ONEs in a 25 on old Mavic Aksiums. (Size 52 frame) I feel like I have veeery little room down at the chainstays. Was looking at a 23mm wide (outer width) carbon wheelset to add to breathe a little life into my bike (for me to avoid maybe selling and going the whole new bike route) but was worried about the tire spreading out and hitting under torque. Any advice appreciated.

    They're 23mm wide tubular rims with 25mm Veloflex Arenbergs (that measure true to size) glued to them. Clearance is a bit tight at the chainstays, but I've never rubbed or had any other issues with them. I also run 28mm Veloflex clinchers (that measure closer to 27-27.5mm) on 23mm wide TB14 rims. It's definitely a tighter fit, but I've also never had any problems with them. I would definitely not try to go any bigger, though.

    FWIW, I'm also on a 52cm frame that I think was made around 2009. I'll be glad to snap some pics or take some measurements if it would help.

    Every time we made production road bikes the rear clearance got a little bit better.
    A shaped delrin block, a c-clamp and a little bit of imagination is all you might need to eek a little extra clearance out of an early production skeletor. As long as you are gentle with your dimples everything should be fine.

    I may try the 23mm carbon clincher with the 25s. The Schwalbe is big for a stated 25, so we’ll see. Thanks!
    I’ll hit you up if I need any more info. Appreciated.

    Fresh Metalhead build..... can a what is now termed as a 'retro' build still be classed as 'fresh', who knows..... but anyway, this was a fun one to put together and it took a blooming age! Just been out on some of the local trails and despite its weight it simply flows. Yes, the forks may raise questions, I had my own reasons for using a lower travel Z2 BAM over the Z1 varient. Just waiting for the mud to dry out and go for a proper spin a little further down the line.

    Three years ago, I was doing my first MTB demo in years and managed to bash my shin before I was 20 feet from the shop. Happy tears.
