I have similar problems on Monday mornings! :wink:

Crank Bros front skewer arrived today and looks pretty nifty, I just need to work out what after market skewers are available for the rear skewer, which is longer than standard.

Small updates.

New saddle and gear cables (idea clearly stolen from a certain RB member and his current 'lush' Ti build :oops: ).

Now contemplating whether I can get away with a 140mm fork on this frame?

Got a 150 one on mine Nick if that helps but the forks A2C is not much longer than the Pace I had on it originally. Rides much better in my opinion though the fork wipes the floor with the Pace.

Yes the A2C is will be the crux. However, I think I'm going to try running with a little less air for awhile and try either a heigher bar or stem to gain a little additional control on the front end. I'll see how this works out for both the ups and the downs before I commit to a new fork.

What travel forks have you got now, 120mm? 140mm would certainly help on the downhills. However, so would some bigger balls :)
