Mavic Zap!

So, we did it. I’m currently testing all the danglers and getting my bike dialed in with this stupid 8 speed stuff.

Shit! I forgot pictures!


And a video!

It’s really close on this 28, I’m going to try a tail hook lengthener to clear 11-32 and run it 1x. Maybe. 13-28 with 30-46 is pushing past its chain capacity.

Good to know. I ordered an 11-28 Claris cassette to use with this. Probably just gonna run 1x with a 39t. Not entirely sure what I’m going to do with such a bike but hey.

Maybe because some of us know how to prioritize cool, fun things and not complain about giving up a colnago to buy a porche and/or selling a million dollar home and not being able to buy another home on passive retirement investment income

OMG I love this, totally bonkers

Did you tell us somewhere how you ended up with like 18 Zap derailleurs?

I think it would be hilarious to do this to my Bates

Although Tarck’s recent turn to meme stocks, crypto, and related harebrained get-rich-quick schemes is mildly concerning.
