Tread preference front and rear.....

if you must run a white tiger, it looks to be a better front tire. however, i agree that 2 nevegals seem like a better choice.

btw, random fact:
white tigers are simply inbred tigers with a birth defect.

As far as the lefty goes: I have spent good trail time on a Cannondale Rush with lefty. The lefty was as stiff as my 36 Talas, and the sensitivity of the fork was superb (very low stiction due to the fork riding on roller bearings).
The rush itself was light, stiff laterally, and nice-handling. It would be my cross country bike of choice.

2003 ClifCat Tankass BB/Crank Issue

yeah i have.

the BB I did try was 113mm spindle, still way too short.

I am thinking I should swap over to 3 piece cranks, which will allow more spacing.

thanks

what about a 118? or 128? or 148? truvativ makes isis spline BB's in all these spindle lengths. 113 is the shortest, in fact.

What spindle length did the 73mm BB have?
Sounds like the BB shell is a 73, but you just need a longer spindle.

Anybody use the Yakima King Joe 3?

I have one. While I think that it is definitely one of the best rear trunk racks, it is still a rear trunk rack; There are risks of damaging your car, sketchyness with bike fit (my fork stanchion always wants to line up with some sharp object), and it gets a little tedious to install every time you want to ride.

Roof and hitch racks are a better choice, but if you must use a trunk rack, this is a good option. Saris bones trunk racks are decent as well.

91.44% done, 36.45% gold? New bike...

better call specialized warranty about using the king headset. i believe the standard kings are not covered under warranty, you have to run special cups that are a tiny bit bigger.

Isn't that a 2006 S-Works Enduro?

I believe the 2007 S Works is Carbon is it not. I prefer the 2006 version of the aluminum Enduros - well the look at least. I have only ridden the carbon one and it wasn't dialled at the time.

I'm on the same ride and it's fantastic. Different build. I have two sets of wheels and with one it's 34 and with the other it's 32. I'm running a Fox 36 Van RC2 and it's a great fit for the bike.

Nice work - it looks beautiful. Mine's all dirty. :lol:

For '07, there are both: S-Works Enduro SL and Enduro.

I also believe that there are no (major if at all) differences between the '07, '06, and '05 (minus the rear shock) S-Works Enduros.

shop rant

We had a guy come into our shop with the excact same bike and problem. Among others, the issues were:

-that cross-ride wheel seemed a little pinner for anyone jumping that bike.

-rebuilding that existing hub essentially would require to to order the exact same replacement rim from mavic (as the spokes have a proprietary head), which is expensive and would put you right back at the place you were; with too light for a wheel for your use.

-the price you paid for that replacement wheel actually seems reasonable to me.

welding aluminum

i bet for close to the cost of paying someone to repair your frame, you could get many' a cheap burly hardtail frame.
