Anyone running Husker Du 120 tpi on their boris? Just want to make sure the tire fits before i order em up
...but the fork's brake mount is set up for a front-spaced hub... is that right? You didn't have to machine the brake adaptor or anything, right?Yes...and no. The axles on the Boris hub are a little too wide to fit the dropouts. Like I said in the post, I had to file a couple flat spots on the axle to get it to fit in the dropouts.
Similar here. Started at 37 lbs, sitting around 34 lbs after swapping out my tires, tubes, seatpost, and saddle. It's heavy, but I figure hauling the extra weight around will just get me in better shape.My Boris started at about 37 pounds and is now hitting about 33. I've substituted the seatpost, seatpost clamp, saddle, handlebars, tires, and inner tubes.
I noticed it rode stiffer on the first ride with the new fork, after that it just seems normal. With the cush of the big tires its no big deal. The weight savings and lazer sharp steering are worth the minor change in the ride quality.I think being around the 30 mark is ideal, for cost vs weight. Cause after that you're getting into the real money. A 175 dollar carbon fork is a good deal.. But do you find that it stiffens up the ride, compared to the steel fork? I think the steel would eat some of the vibration that the carbon would pass through to your grips, no? I've never owned carbon parts besides the rear of fs.
Yup those rubber strips over the red rim strip are close to a pound for the pair. I chucked those and wrapped the rim with a couple rounds of clear packing tape to protect the tube.My Boris started at about 37 pounds and is now hitting about 33. I've substituted the seatpost, seatpost clamp, saddle, handlebars, tires, and inner tubes.
I ran into another guy on a Boris on the trail. He said he'd removed the foam rim liner leaving just the thin rim-hole cover and saved close to another pound. No flats according to him. Can anyone else confirm this?
I'm a bit skeptical - especially with SL tubes. I think that foam helps keep the spoke nipples from poking into the tubes. But maybe someone else can give testimony. Anyone? Class? Beuller? Beuller?
How is riding boris with the thudbuster lt? I also have their thudbuster neoprene cover but year of riding i found whole bunch of dirt/dust collected in it.I can't offer a verdict yet. I managed to get it put on just before dark and only had time to ride around the yard. It feels different. Stiffer definitely. I'll try to give it a good run tomorrow after work.
