    Fuggenstein can't be killed...anyone for some more rootbeer?

    Since B2B felt teased...this is the build thread, I guess. All others so far were random wwjd stuff, so here it is...all crazy like:


    I was gonna strip it down to RAW, but I love the A&W finish waaaay to much. Frame deal (with KORE post) courtesy of Scrublover:


    Plenty of room for a 2.5"

    Came with tugs! WooHOO!

    GRRRRRR!!! Mutha!

    Crankset deal + refund courtesy of JoeFang:

    Preload cap courtesy of Dannihilator:

    Stem was a good deal, but the bars were a "perk" freebee:


    Wheels and fork pic's coming soon.

    What's with the chocolate fountain? And the jamis headtube? Speaking of headtubes, I found half a TCR composite frame under a pile of crap at work.

    The fountain was a wedding gift (I think) but works really flippin' well with BBQ sauce and "Hot Mama's" too.

    Jamis head tube? Hmmm...that was a stepping stone on the path that led me to my '05 Komodo.
    Bought a 2004 from Jenson for $144, was jigged/welded crooked. They sent me a new one under warranty. I had to prove that I wasn't gonna sell it again, so they had me cut the head tube off. On #2...the rear tri flexed under braking forces. They sent me the '05. Can't complain a lick about the '05 except for maybe the tire clearance is a tad tight for a FRHT.

    Ah, alright. Same reason the TCR was there. Looks like your new one will be a fun build.

    Classic running joke from a certain DH forum. Ranks right up with "Looks flexy" and "Does it come in rootbeer?"

    Rootbeer is always sweet, man. I think Ed needs an A&W head badge for that baby.

    Now I know why I got such a good deal on the Revolution 36's...there are 3 versions (V1, V2, V3)

    Here's the set that's OTW to me (std QR rear / 20mm fr):


    Here's the new Revolution:



    The new Revolution has a freakin' Specialized Stout QR...like a dadgum 10mm TA QR. You can order a 10mm nutted solid for it.

    I still got a good deal, I wonder if I can convert mine to a nutted axle?

    TBC may have the parts, if the hubshells they use are all the same between models, to convert.

    Otherwise, those have a nice gnurled steel bit on the frame contact point. That combined with a good skewer and the SS pulls ought to work. The hub I used had the same, and a bolted skewer worked pretty well.

    Yeah...the 10mmBO would have been the bomb.

    The tugs won't fit over the axle on the inside of the dropouts, and the QR style hub axle doesn't exten beyond the thickness of the frame, so if I use the tugs, I'll have a 10mm hole w/ a skinny little skewer through it. My other option is to do what I did with the Saint pedal insert washers. Buy a washer that will fit inside the tuge hole and drill it out for the QR...or just hope it works.

    I think I may just go the route of the Halo bolt-on skewer. I'm sure it's tough enough for the task.
