The man don't lie. I found this out the hard way. It's still manageable, but quite a bit tougher to get the front end up.

There's still a few fatbikes available in shops up here.

Arrive and ride.

Cool. If I have a physical address for the Greenway Bike Shop, I'll just punch it into my GPS and head straight there.

If you don't have a CamelBak, I'd suggest buying one with a 100oz bladder and just forget water bottles. You'll quickly burn through two water bottles, before getting to most of Greenway's trailheads. Don't run yourself short!
I picked up a CamelBak Mule a couple of months ago for just this reason. Almost all the off-roaders you see around here use them instead of water bottles.

The only drop I'll be doing is when I ride over a curb. I plan to keep both wheels on the ground until I get acclimated to riding off pavement.

IF you can get your front wheel over it, there's a 90% chance you're going to get the rest of the bike over the obstacle.

Does anybody have a shimano ultegra fd-6500 with a 31.8 mm clamp that they'd trade me in exchange for a shimano ultegra fd-6500 with a 28.6 clamp?

And in my case, a 100% chance of it ending in a massive face plant.

Mebbe. Lemme check. May be D/A with the 31.8 clamp.

That happened to inmate John Bryer while riding in Moab. I don't know if he was riding a 29er, but he broke his face and posted the video of it in JM or Inmates. It was a nasty hit which required a hospital stay.

Custom wheel parts or source of complete wheels....

Hi Guys,
I want to build up a set of weird wheels for a cruiser.
Do you have any recommendations of places to buy parts or even complete wheels to my parts specs?
I've done some searching and haven't come across the combination I'm looking for. I'm looking for a 29" rim with 2-speed Sturmey-Archer hub.

Thanks,
Justin

I have seen those. I need to look into how wide the Alex Rims are??? I've never heard of Alex rims before. There are sets with the Weinmann DP18 & DA16 rims but they are both very narrow. I'd like to go a bit wider to be able to try a 45mm-ish tire. I was also leaning towards the red anodized hubs.

That first link to me looks like the rims in the pictures might be the DA16 rims although the page doesn't mention them? Maybe my next step will be to call Velo-Mine.

He did lots of things really wrong in that video. Bit him in the (face) rear hard.

28.6mm = steel
31.8mm = AL
34.9mm = CF

*usually

I've got one 34.9 derailleur and it ain't for sale. I may have an extra clamp for a braze-on if you're still interested
