Put some byways on the ladybiek and removed the fenders for clearance, she really likes this setup (minus the sub-stellar brakes, but it’s good enough.)

Swift campout, bob trailer edition. Drove up the night before, stashed 3 cases of beer in the woods, and made shuttle runs with the trailer. Shit was fucking spectacular. The day/ruiner handles this outrageous setup with ease. New bee-lines are pretty great on choppy fire roads.

Got my bag/rack situation sorted out


#48043

Yeah. I haven’t spent much/any time trying to work out how to get fenders on there, but I’m sure it wouldn’t be hard if I took more than 5 minutes to do it.

I still haven’t quite worked out which rack is actually supposed to fit on there, since there isn’t a hole in the front of the fork crown. I think those holes that I thought were rack mounts are actually for water bottles? I would love to find a small rack that would fit on there to carry a little bag on the front, though. If there were something with fixed arms that mounted to those four holes, that would probably be strong enough to carry a little load.

The fork rides well, though. Some people on the internet seem to think it rides too stiff, but I haven’t noticed. I also pretty much never run my tires higher than 55 psi, so maybe that has something to do with it. It also has a ton of clearance, so I might try a bigger tire in the front if I keep riding these eroded fire roads in Marin.[/quote]
they are water for bottle anything cages to strap things too. You can attach a front rack if you put a plate under the the fender mount and run the fender through that tall V part. This will maybe work with fenders if you get a piece of steel and make it to lower the fender and add a front facing hole at the same time. Lord knows there is space for it.

or you can mount a full rack that connects at the mid bosses and the fender mounts. Then mount fenders to the rack.

So much awesome goin on here. Any issues with the FD and the Bee-Lines? (2.2 right?) I’m thinking of putting some TB 2.25’s on my day/ruiner (probs have to go 1x?)

No issues with the bee-lines (2.2 is correct). I’m actually pretty certain that these are the tires the bike was made for, braden and endy might be able to elaborate. I have a m8000 FD and it clears about the same as the frame.

Speaking of which:
Bee-lines are almost maxed out here. Not quite, but almost. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re flying too close to the sun on 2.25 tires.

edit: i’d say that the 2.2 tires are more than sufficient for most dithering.

Endpoint do have those WTB Rangers in 2.25 (might try it in the summer.)

Love the fork mounted boom box cage.

[quote=jimmythefly][quote=puelnewdle]Tried out the 0.5m chairpole and rode down to the mailbox and around the park yesterday. Better, but still not enough saddle height. Such a bummer, this bike is terribly fun to ride.

Thanks! This might be the first bike part I buy in spite of it being silver.

The current setup is totally fine for the 1/4 mile ride to the mailbox and back, and probably totally fine for the 1 mile round trip to the grocery store, if I ever went there because I can’t remember the PIN to my debit card since I never use it anywhere and they only take cash/debit.

In case of emergency, break seatpost.

In case of poor decision making, break frame with ultralong chairpin.

This thing is so much fucking fun.

It’s kind of amazing how well this works on aluminum, especially for a 10-footer.

what does this mean?


#48059

a “10 foot finish” - looks good from 10 feet away.


#48060

Good from a far but far from good.
