Hydro e-tap is coming likely end of year, maybe next season at the latest. (take with at least 4 grains of salt. That time-frame is from a notoriously inconsistent source, but i'll relay it all the same).

Not sure on timeline for clutch-based e-tap bits. I would think that they would have to substantially re-design the servo for more torque to shift against clutch in shitty conditions, as well as packaging of the derailleur in general. I'm sure they're on it, I just don't know when.

Just run a SRM crank with sram rings. Been done before. I have owned two cranks with SRM and SRAM drivetrains.

Need Clavicula compatibility for my spare CX bike.

what these electronic groups should do is offer an electronically locked cage. no need to clutch, just lock it after the shift, being that it knows when to unlock the cage to shift it shouldn't be a big deal.

That said, you couldn't run oval rings on it if you liked those.

mailman brought me this sweet bit of carbon for the tandem rebuild.

Whisky #9, 15x100 thru axle road fork





Laced up quick this rim to see the tire clearance... waiting to see if my LBS can get the new Easton R90 SL rim in 32h.

Cool documentary - thanks for sharing. Crazy to see how some of those frame building methods are still used today on many handmade custom bikes. I guess if something works, why change it?

My buddies have S600 SRAM levers and calipers on their poverty Focus CX bikes. I tried the pad-advance and bleed procedure that I followed with my bike and the levers are nothing alike. The s600 levers and calipers require an extremely long travel to get the same kind of braking force I get with .25" pull on my Rival levers and calipers. I can find nothing on a recall outside of the Red or S700 levers. Any thoughts on what the problem might be? Again, I followed the instructions verbatim, did the pad advance procedure as well, just how I did it on my CX rig which worked the first time.

this may be the design.

much like a car with stock master an 4 wheel 4 pot big brakes, you can get a lot of travel out of the stock system with the added volume at the calipers.

Depends on the master piston vs caliper piston ratio.

if its firm and not squishy, they probably have fine braking just with more throw. is there any adjustment for them for throw like there is with shimano?

Going to go look at this later today, CC frame with Rival group. Built and maintained by a Santa Cruz employee (co-worker's brother).

So I bought it. It looks better outside.

Listed the Rock Lobster and Six13 on CL, got a bite or two. If I manage to break even on them then they pay for the Stigmata.



Facebook friend modified another picture of it...

Commuter bike project...
Cancelled this frame... it is a 58x58 and im more 56tt and for adventure/commuting I would want a bit more standover since I have a 32" inseam. Plus it maxes out at about a 28 tire because of the chainstay clearance.
(put this in the commuter bike thread too... I forgot we had one of those)

picked this up, $ investment? FREE (LOL, you think... so did I... I didn't even initially want it but they offered it free so I went and picked it up)



Took it down to the frame, since the whole drivetrain is old, heavy and generally not desirable. Put my $50 wheels (with 10 speed 12-28 cassette) on it with some parts bin tires that may or may not get changed out since they ride like bricks.



I also was given a new aluminum road bar with 105 5600 levers (2x10) for free so I will be using that as a drivetrain start. fun building up old cheap bikes.

Lol. Accurate.

That said, I like SRAM ergonomics and the fact that the brake lever stays straight in line.
Shimano di2 hydraulic 785 levers the brake just pulls straight in line, so im happy to have that for the new tandem build.
