You did remember to tighten up the cranks with a steel bolt before using the alloy one didn't you :wink:

Umm, no I didn't, and that was after reading it in some other thread and thinking 'hmmm, sounds like a good idea'.

Not quite feeling the FAT love yet, but then all I've had are couple of slippy laps of the slabs out the back... Mythos XCs plus icy patch = skiddy malinkies. A good couple of hours at the weekend should do the trick.

Make it prettier, and lose the bounce as it was heavier than the frame.

Something wrong when the forks are 0.5Kg heavier than the frame.

Fear not Tazio, once my 'Lardtail' is revealed the rest of MacRetro will think your steed was fashioned from exotic materials by mastercraftsmen :lol:

Chromo fork wont work so brazed crown high tensile forks are now in. Forks plus steerer/headset I suspect are heavier than many suspension forks. I'm now feared to look at scales in case it weighs more than Ecks geared bike :oops:
