SRAM even designed and makes a ring for around here. The steel X-Sync ring. A pet project of Morland's

EVT Right Arm is high high on the want list. Eventually one of those clamps will live in my garage when it's finished.
In the DebonAir you could tweak the negative spring with the volume spacers bands independent of the positive spring. Are there options to tweak the feel of the negative in the new shocks?
Is it wrong that I want to see more of that shop than the bike?
I grabbed a set of the replaceable ones from the Kickstarter when these were first launched and they've been great. They didn't have the nice case back then. I pair it with a small chain breaker salvaged from a multi-tool that you turn the pin with the 4mm allen.
Bastion Cycles is doing the same 3d printed ti lugs and carbon process in road.
Firefly currently does some beautiful welded ti lugs with carbon tubes.
Festka flips this the other way and does a mixed carbon ti that is ti downtube, toptube, and rear end all bonded by carbon with a carbon seat tube.
Ritchey actually makes a carbon bullmoose bar stem but it's only 720mm wide at 70mm stem length. If it was wider it would be awesome.
I ran thumbies up to 2009, indexed, but still a fan oh the thumbie. Barham told me he'd never shoot any more photo's with me if I had built up a new bike after the fire with thumbies.
This made me pull up the Rivendell site….that made me find their 12-40 "elite wide" 9spd cassette. Hmmm wider range 9 spd with Thumbies for my next hardtail build? Maybe build it as some mish mash of old and modern. Boost rear spacing with a 9spd thumbie drivetrain. A pressfit BB running some old 5 arm compact cranks?
Pretty sure Pineapple Bob is the shipping guy at Rivendell bikes. Read that somewhere on the Riv site or the Riv Blug. I read way to much random stuff on the net.
