Largely this build has remained unchanged over time as it all just works. That said its difficult not to tinker! New additions:
29er+ front wheel - Surly Knard 3.0 on a Velocity Dually rim
Salsa Regulator titanium post
First ride out with the new additions was over the weekend. No need to follow the trails now the bike just plows its own
Mounted on the Dually the Knard is a true 75mm wide, the volume is hugebut doesn't through the non suspension corrected geometry:
The fork is a 440mm AtoC Salsa Cromoto and whilst the clearance isn't huge its on par with whats available out back:
The ti post is wonderfully finished. No sure on it yet though. The ride whilst seated is a lot smoother but the undamped nature of the flex will take some getting used to.
I'm having a new Alfine hub laced into a Flow rims so hopefully that should allow a slightly lower pressure to be run out back.
Huge thanks to the guys at Just Riding Along http://www.justridingalong.com/
for building the wheel
