      ^ That thing looks fast.

      On the other end of the spectrum, we have this ridiculous thing and the "road tires" that I bought for it. Why are the tan sidewall tires always the ones on sale? They're a bit tacky looking. But, then again, so is the bike.




      (yes, I realized that one was on backwards... oops)

      I have to say that these are the easiest tubeless tires that I've ever installed. Combined with Easton's awesome sealed rim beds (all rims need to be like this), they went on easily and inflated with a floor pump, valve cores and all. I haven't added any sealant yet, and they've held air for hours now. We'll see how they are tomorrow.

      After killing my hands, upper body from racing a rigid fat bike decided it was now time to get a suspension fork. Since ill be running 27.5x4.5 studded tires in the winter, bought the Manitou Mastondon Comp EXT fork with 100mm travel. This is the only fat bike fork that will fit 27.5x4.5 or 26x5.05 tires. My summer setup are 27.5x3.8 with Minion FBF (Front) and Bontrager Hodag (rear)

      Ride - Feels almost like cheating. You just blow over rocks and you feel nothing. Take the F U line, just monster truck it. Awesome mid-stroke. Hard hits towards the top of the travel is a bit harsh might need to play with tire pressure or tokens. My first ride, I tied my PR on my local loop (over 40 attempts using full suspension) and feel I can push harder.

      Bike looks great! I've been super happy with Manitou forks. Great value compared to RS and Fox.

      Received my 1up roof carrier for the 244 today. The bike looks ridiculously high up there.

      Recently, I was tempted to buy a new CX/gravel/drop bar bike/frame that can take big tires. A 2020 Crockett, specifically. I soon realized this was almost entirely due to the fact it came in a nice, bright color. When it came to being a bike for how I ride, it would likely be worse than what I currently have, and I'd sell it in 6 months. So in an effort to save a couple of grand and yet another "just buy what you really want, you idiot" from my wife, I bought some bright green bar tape, renamed the bike after my awesome and much-missed german shepherd that passed away a few months ago, and ordered a lime green seat post clamp. $40, and I think I'm good... even if I messed up the wrap job a tiny bit.



      I made the decals with waterslide paper and a laser printer. It's not the most durable thing in the world, but it works for now. It already looks worn enough to match the rest of the frame. I'll probably do die cut vinyl eventually.

      Edit - I also took off those ugly and slow-rolling Vittorias and swapped the Havens for EA90 XCs and the tried and true Fast Trak/Renegade.

      got this bike up and running. Picked up the Zonda wheels used off Ebay for a steal.

      3D printed a presta adapter when I discovered I didn't have one after replacing an inner tube.
