Ohlins have proven to be meh.
Cane Creek is pretty awful
Push is dialed.
Dvo is laughable
Fox/RS are good

Push has the Eleven six on lock.

What don't you like about Cane Creek? I admittedly have no experience with DVO or Push, but I've liked the Cane Creek stuff I've used.

My SB5c needs a new shock. Always been underwhelmed with any single can rear shock. I've been considering the X2 but I'm kind of tempted to try a CCDB inline coil or Push Eleven Six. Tough to justify at the moment with the money I'm putting into my car.

The CCDBCSOMGBBQ has an incredibly bad failure rate.

The X2 is rad. The Eleven six is on another level.

Call me if you're after something for your bike.

That's actually a pretty bitchin looking bike. Make sure you rotate the bars the correct way, not like the one shown

Got my wheels on.




Running them with 25c tires. I asked Boyd if he recommended using a 23 or 25c on them since I have both and he said 23c will be more aero in a straight line, slightly better with crosswinds, and a small weight advantage. He said the 25c will be more comfortable, handle better, and have less rolling resistance.

Does pretty much everyone here run 25c, or is the 23 still worth trying

Let us know how difficult the brakes are to pull.

#2 just got his own strider for his birthday.

Haha I didn't notice the moose antler handlebar arrangement. I will do it properly.

I'm skipping 12" pedal bike. Campbell is pushing 43 inches tall with an 18" crotch height. If I raise the seat any more on his balance bike, it'll come out. Hopefully he's on board with big boy bike. If not, he can just grow more.

I spent a lot of time trying to find alternatives to a $250 bike for a 4 year old. They're all 25 lbs and have just a coaster brake. Let's hope this pays off and he can bomb around the 'hood like a boss.

Emilio, you'd approve of his helmet design. It resembles my former republic's state flag:

Went to the doctor yesterday, elbow only has damaged bursa (little collagen pad is ruptured from impact) so no surgery, calcium growth in the clavicle is low so I'm in the sling for another three weeks, pushing me at least another two weeks back into a return to cycling in early to mid November. I think it's time to come to terms and write-off any CX racing this year, focus on base miles for next year and maybe work hard to race well in the Tulsa Tough cat-4 races. I'm really heart broken over missing CX, but I don't think I can handle the pain of riding a CX course in the first month or two after the break, road should be fine.

I started on the trainer last night, my home for the next two months.

eat more high calcium stuff like kale/chard/collards/broccoli and milk and with it eat things high in vitamin D and C to improve absorption of calcium.

I am, but thanks. Those are staples of my regular diet, time to hit the supplements, I guess.

I'm more amazed at the fact you can see I have a compact crank than any of your jokes, though I do enjoy me a Kilted ride on a hot day lol

And apparently 4 logos are all the rims need. They're not even stickers but are etched on or something so there's nothing to peel off lol

Also not sure how to feel about this: https://philadelphianakedbikeride.wordpress.com

TurboTim and I just discussed tire pressure. I'm 179lb and running 18mm ID road wheels, 21.5mm ID CX wheels with these pressures:
Road wheels:
70/80 on training wheels
60/70 in a crit
CX bike:
40/55 on the 32mm Spesh Roubaix
25/28 on the Hutch Toros

lol at 100psi on 28s

And I do not like how my bike handles at less than 100psi on my 25mm turbo pros (18mm inner width clincher). 110psi is where I typically put both front and rear, and the bike is telepathic. 153lbs. I guess it can't hurt to try them at 70 ?!? and compare some local strava segments. If it's faster, I'll find a way to get used to the bike's handling.

EDIT: same for the 23c turbo elites that came with the bike/narrower rim. They got squishy below 100, buzzy above 120.
