    Built up a Rambo e-fatbike this morning. 49lbs without the battery. It's pedal assist, but also has a throttle so you don't have to pedal. Local guy is going to use it for getting out to hunt spots. It's pretty dang fun...

    I've been switching back&forth from full rigid to hardtail these last 3 years. Ideally I would own 2 bikes, one rigid and one full susser. This is a 27.5+ boost Fox 32 with 29+ wheel hence the relatively tight fit.

    Make sure the tire won't bottom out on the underside of the fork crown when the fork is fully compressed. I know some 27.5" wheel/tires will do that in 26" forks.

    Thanks. My plan was to release all air to check that and install travel limiters if needed. I bought it based on recommendations from others so I'm confident it should be ok but I'll do my own check before reaching a trail that's for sure. Don't want to go over the bars.

    Sometimes the shop gets slow and I am literally waiting for the post man to arrive with repair parts for projects in my stand. That being said, I have a little time to kill. On a completely related note, do you remember those Chris King calendars that had the O and HO scale people modeling throughout theIR hubs, headsets, etc...? Well, I really like them and am sad to see no one has recreated them since. So about 1 or 2 times a week while waiting for the postman, this is what is in my stand. If you like them, my Instagram is @thissucksletsridebikes and the # is #IWCconstructioncrew.

    Constructive criticism, ideas, and other things are gladly accepted.

    I borrowed some Bora 50 tubulars and got to try them out over 23/3000' that ended up being 40/3400'

    While I am last to the party now I know why there is a party.

    More bikes should be Spider Man themed.

    Oh let's see: low BB, knobbies on wheels smaller than 700c, integrated chain catcher, appears to be 1x(1), long seatmast combined with the revolutionary spaceframe for maximum vertical compliance but optimized lateral stiffness...

    ...yup it's gravel specific.

    Not exactly a "workstand", and the stitching is not great (you always aim to do better), but it works though the attachment needs to be refined!
    About 5lt capacity and 150gr including the straps. Cost? Maybe a tenner. Fun making it? Lots!

    Supposed (in practice, it was debatable) paint defect on the rear frame of a new Brompton, top priority is to avoid any mark on the main frame while cutting the hinge spindle.
    Steady hand, and cut right in the middle of that Nylon washer!




    And those are the things I don't get.
    Not only was assembled without grease, not only was overtightened. There was also an attempt to remove it with a crap allen key

    There was no other choice.







    Damn it!
    Did I say "use grease!" ???

    The Hampsten single-speed was in my work stand last week and will be next week too.....

    Trying to go full hipster Campagnolo with the Hampsten. If I'm going to keep and ride the single speed Hampsten in it's urban, beer swilling, skinny jean wearing element I may as well install my nearly 30-year old Campagnolo Delta brakes. Got these new in '89. They've been in a box for a while and they need to be used. But with the bike having been made for long reach brakes they aren't ideal. I may need to get some wider rims then these gen 1 Pacenti SL23s. They'll spread out the 25s a bit more. As seen I've got proper pad contact and about 1.5mm of tire clearance. The wider rims might give me another millimeter of clearance. Or I'll have to use 23s.

    Anyway, a fun project at the moment.

    These are the coolest brakes ever made. They are what is in my work stand at the moment.

    Spent the weekend turning the Rock Lobster from my single-track shredder into a next-level camper/grocery-getter/apocalypse bike. Threw on some fenders, a nitto rack, a chain catcher and going to put on a bottle cage under the downtube when I take it camping this weekend. Took 'er out for a spin to pick up some soil from the shop and a pepper plant from a friend/breeder. Pas mal.

    My favourite calliper brakes. So nice to look at.
