Well everything is together for my slowest ever build. A house and another car got in the way! Just thought I'd pick the brains trust on here to see If I've missed any frames worth considering.
140mm + travel
148x12 rear end
73mm Bsa BB
Under $3k ish.
A few guys have started riding at work and have asked me a few times which bike has been the best one. Looking back there's been some clear stand out.
2006 sc bullit - best fun.
2014 lapierre dh 920 - best jumping.
2012 army bike Co wehrmacht - best plow.
2018 evil wreckoning - most outrageous...
Going the large, based off 37mm offset 150mm 27.5 fork. Question is, do I roll with a the 44mm or 51mm offset option for the 140mm manitou mezzer or do I go 150mm with 51mm offset. Rocking a 29x2.4 ardent and 27.5x2.4WT dissector. Rear travel is 140mm. Bike to be used for all styles of...
Well thought I'd put it the masses, any of our rotorburn member's conveyancers? Few of us could use a good Victorian conveyancer to pass on some referrals as our in house one isn't keeping up with what we are selling and settling on.
Always looking towards the future and assessing life's options. Would be interested to know how many of you would viably spend a weekend or few days in your own cabin in the forest with a communal eating lodge with a chef/pastry chef on site to prepare meals with produce locally and from the...
Well between the hefty amounts of arthritis and some pretty nasty ligament damage along with a double break in the leg, is anyone using the tld 6400 brace? Odds of a full heal arent great and ill need to protect it if I want to keep riding into the future.
Alright lads, getting closer with this build. However struggling on the rim selection. It'll be 28H 29er front, 32H 27.5 rear. Looking for light front rim thats welded, hopefully 6069, if it isn't I'd like it eyeleted. Would be good to pair this up with a rear matching 32H rim in 27.5 or...
Finally, a modern version of my beloved hope v2s. Brutal power, no inconsistent pad wear of a 4 pot or cleaning numerous sticky pistons,or bleeding behind etc.
Ticks all the boxes, but finding a price isnt easy. Distris don't list it, and Steve...
Hi lads, building the wheels up next for this build and still can't decide on rims. Have spent some solid time on various carbon wheelsets and only enjoy the sensation out of the corners, otherwise not phased. Is anyone running the vibrocore 350 rim after using nobl/zelvy/enve.if so, are you...
