I couldn't make it, Blanton. 8 ours of welding..
First thing installed on my Altitude, within 10 minutes of unpacking the bike: 20mm TA fork.
So there you have it.
It's a Voodoo Canzo!

Interested in the ride tomorrow pm at Vultures knob. Can you pm me some details?
Thanks a ton.
I would be coming from Euclid.

Blanton, where should I ride in/near Cleveland tomorrow evening?
It's windy as FUCK tonight....

The riding on Planet Earth is currently the best, I reckon'
Well, Klein, Gary Fisher, Boone, and a few others made 17mm square taper spindles that press-fit into sealed cartridges. Just a 2:54 am random solution idea.
The Klein ones you tapped in/ out with...
No, because pretty much everyone agreed that at first, 29-ers really sucked in the tight n' twisties. And that they bunny hopped/wheelied/etc. like SHIT.

Wish i could have rallied for that, funky travel schedule i am on.
Ended up going to Ellicotville, and got a taste of some really good singletrack, but it poured buckets, so it was all a bit...

Ellicotville comes up while searching....anyone?

Looking for something with chunk. Near Jamestown, perhaps? Is that too far west for good rocky trails? (Driving from Syracuse to Cleveland, open for suggestions)
Probably wont go as far south as...
Does it have a bearing cage?
If so, ditch that shit, and add loose balls, if the cones aren't destroyed already.
Agreed, that doesn't even make sense.
Slavonic, you ROCK.
Thanks so much.
Thanks, A, we miss you already.
I notice, and I was prepared to be underwhelmed, to be honest.
Especially here in the East Coast chunk, and even moreso on the Ribbon and Blue dot. Totally rolled stuff I truly think I would have...
I think just a commitment will help!
Not sure of the deadline date.
If it s 26.99, then why are my wheels almost 28"?
Not one size fits all, but ranges.
Like my Rocky Altitude...it will fit 26 or 27.5, and has adaptable geometry.
It wouldn't be hard to do, say, 26-28, and 27.5-29, etc, etc.
So, my wife is riding the LRRH ride for the Huntsman Center in June. She is super busy, but really, really wants to do the whole 100 miles. Thing is, she needs to pony up $750 for her 'team' (it is...
Well, once forks, frames and shocks can accommodate ranges of wheels adequately, sure, why not. It's just a wheel, like a shoe size.
No big deal in the big picture.
The overlap ones will...
Lee, I think when the real 2.4-2.5" dual ply 27.5" tires become more available, you will be able to tell. (28.5" tall or so)
I just got some 27.5 'true tubeless/thick sidewall' High Rollers, haven't...
No, V. 2.1 was 2005-2009.
I'm telling you....just WAIT for the inevitable V. 3.1 drivetrain (internal gear/non derailleur based) revolution. It's what's next.
Skis should ONLY be available in 175 and 195.
Learn how to ski THOSE sizes, or just crawl in a hole and DIE,
The answer all lies in the tire size. My 650 tires are the same as a 2.8 DH mt bike tire, but about two pounds lighter....
Anyone up for a Catskills assault on Friday? Better yet, anyone have any beta on something west of Albany, South of the Thruway, northern Catskills?
I just wrote you a note on the NE thread, pookums.
Scrub, what does your schedule look like next week?
05-02-2013, 11:18 AM
I'm not coming home until the snow below 8k is gone, dammit!
I have about a week free, no idea where I might end up....

There really isn't much worth riding near St. George.
Trail 1....to oblivion.
So, I went out for a ....three...hour...tour....
That turned into 4.5 hours, with some hike-a-bike thought I wuz gonna have to call SAR sections, some great flowy singletrack, some heinous moto...
05-01-2013, 08:29 AM
Thought so. I know they make them, but distributors don't stock them....
Still figuring out the 'perfect' gear selection for the 650 (and the 38t rear cog). I am thinking 34 or 35...
04-30-2013, 11:04 PM
Think I might have to run with BlackSpire. marshal, are they showing a 35 or 33, perhaps?
04-30-2013, 10:40 PM
Thanks, mang. Curious if it is even available...
04-30-2013, 09:57 PM
I am on the road, so I don't have any catalogues with me. Last years QBP only had one (truvativ, I think?). Can anyone check if there is a R.F, SRAM, or Shimano option in 104mm in Qbp, BTI, etc? ...
Thanks, Blunts, that was comprehensive beta.
I decided to drive blue highways/back roads from Seven Springs, following Kettle Creek all the way up 219/144, and rode some rocky ass, rarely mountain...
The mo' gnarly chunk the bettah!
I have to be in Syracuse by the 2cnd. Think I will bug outa d head north, looks way too wet. Any of you know of anything dryer near the Endless Mountains?
Looks like I will head east by state...
Anyone ride here much? I'm in the lot ready to ride, but there is still snow! Surprised there aren't park rats...anyhoo, I don't even see a trail map or shop....
04-27-2013, 11:36 PM
Holy motherfuck, I LOVE this bike.
I mean seriously.
Last three days I gave it some good testing
Day 1: all of Bar M trails to tune it, then Amasaback/upper/lower cap'n Ahab
Day 2: Mag 7,...

Lee, do you think a different rear shock would 'uncork' the Altitude more for you, rate wise?
I'll know more next week, I still haven't ridden mine outside of the garage yet.
04-21-2013, 09:48 AM
Well, that's your problem right there. I mean, what the hell does HE know?
As an aside, I am running mine with a 36....even (potentially) slacker.
04-21-2013, 09:36 AM
Sounds like you would be at home on the Element, go for it!
By any chance, did you get to play with the geometries with the Cube?
It completely transforms the Altitude into different animals.

They are hickory. You can drop a Park hammer on them and they wont dent.
I have no issues at all, they are truly bomber...no worries Tig welding (but I have a floor covering under the bench), but I...
You are just SO cute.
Well, they aren't cheap (but if you go to any custom lighting store, no good lighting is cheap.) I am asking $275 for that one. But that is shipped, with full warranty, and I would include a gift....
