What did you do to your crosscheck today?

I broke my ankle doing that in 2014

TT position in my 55x11 gear on 20" wheels

veered across multiple lanes, straight through the curb, across the sidewalk, up a flight of concrete steps, and flipped over the central stair railing

I roached the seat clamp from too much dithering.

Or not enough dithering?

This color makes me so jealous

Ha! I feel the same about yours!

simple solution- send them both to me and one of you gets a bike that’s the color you wanted

I had the Nudebeach equivalent folding box, but it was noisy as hell whenever I hit a bump. I got the solid version and even though it can’t fold flat, I prefer it.

I cut some convoluted foam for the bottom which makes it almost silent now, too.

what kind of foam situation did you use? i’ve got some ~1” thick closed cell foam because work provides near limitless supply (though it is now 4 hours away) and i figured i could always just throw it out if i needed.

bigant is solid/thick enough that it doesn’t make much rattle. stuff in the bottom does but the bonus of having the thick foam bottom is i can keep stuff under it- currently have my pump and the allen key for the wheels in there

We bought a bunch for photo gear boxes and had some stuff we used for the kids left over. If you’ve seen what Pelican case lids come with, it’s real similar.

I hung some parts on @Wesbarf 's Poprad to get a shopping list for Kid Biek V4.

The Tektro wet brake I had on the old dirt jumper has enough hose; I’m just going to get a matching front brake. Anyone have any tips for running hose where cablestops are?

Sporked it. Need to clean up the housing probably re cable half of it.

New headset didn’t fix the headset coming loose problem. :colbert: good news is I don’t think it’s the frame because the cups had resistance going in.

Star nut slipping?

Carbon steerer, so it has a compression plug. It’s a profile 1" carbon steerer fork. I’ll check on a different compression plug.

Didn’t change crown race when changing the headset. Lower bearing and race seemed to both 45*, but going to check it incase.
