Think a surly tuggnut will be needed and do I need a SS specific wheel or can my converted freehub one suffice AC?


No reason why you can't use the freehub one. So is it gonna be built using the forks that came with it or are you gonna go for some front sus? And of course being an Inbred you'll need to put the Mary's on it. :lol:

Initially going for the orig forks (feel the pain)- and I have some risers earmarked- I like the mary's on the sbike for now but might switch over in the future. itching to get the bike up and running to test my long top tube/ comfort theory. Will need to get rid of all my other bikes if the hypothesis is proven correct :twisted:




yeah right :lol:

CV on sunday? I promise to fall off alot as I will be on the dale- the runway doubles here I come :shock:
