    Rough start to the week! Laid the bike down and took a nice little chip out of the head tube. Now I have some exposed fibers. Basic quarter test, doesn't sound dead or hollow.

    i was surfing through a lot of different used bikes and i stumbled on this one. What do you guys think about it?

  8. Fat bikes
    Just sharing a fun build I've been working on over the past year of so. I named it MCGA (Make China Great Again). The goal was to build up a super budget fatbike using as many no-name parts from China as possible. If not from China, the parts were to be from the bin or bought used. It began as a...

  10. Forks - rigid
    This fork came off of my bike so I could have a fork that allowed for mounting fenders. Otherwise it would still be there. About 10.5" of steerer tube length, so seems like plenty for just about any bike. Carbon, CX, disk brake, quick release. Let me know if you have questions.
