that's not a problem here at the moment, getting there will be the only issue, hope it lasts.

Looking forward to a few of the fat rides as well, you heading to any?


I'd thoroughly recommend getting to Fat Forth if you can. Coastkid knows his onions and if you can make both days you will get the full range of coastal riding. Wartime remains, big sandy beaches, serious rock crawling (with easier options if you don't fancy it), dune surfing etc, etc, etc. :wink:

WOW guys, thanks very much for offers of help, its much appreciated.
I will probably order the cassette and chain tonight from CRC, thanks for the heads up and the price list.
Gaz, I may well get a quick release from you, I am using the rear from my 94 Stumpy and the Truckers XT rear while I build it up.
Should be done soon :roll:
Looking forward to Dunkeld, be good to see everyone again and catch up.
Thanks again guys
Jamie

In terms of the chain I'd think about the cross step. I've got on on the Salsa as I got a great deal on it without fully understanding the benefits and it came in at the same price as the standard chain. Since then I've found out that it's 25% stronger than the standard which might be useful on a fat bike. I don't think there is even a weight penalty.

You might also like to consider the 9 speed 12-36T cassette you get these days, even lower bottom gear could be useful with all that rotational mass :wink:
