thanks this was a lot of the information to look for. Also thanks for not hating on the idea. I understand it will be a big hassle and a money drain. But at least I am not looking to change the...

I guess I should have searched frankenbike and not conversion first. I've ridden the smallest sizes on the surly lht and I just didn't like it. I can't put my finger on it. It did feel sluggish but...

I guess just personal experience, I have never flatted on a 25. And maybe it is psychological, it just feels like I have more grip on corners

Topeak road Morph is an awesome pump. I don't have a normal floor pump because I only use this one. You can also screw the bracket using the downtube water braze ons. that is what I did. I think that...

I really dig that Gunnar but at my size I would need 26" wheels, and I just can't seem to find a pair of club ride worthy 26" wheels.

I picked mine up for a cool $200. Best purchase ever. I did replace the entire drive train a few years later but 1) I wanted to and 2) by that time I knew what worked and what didn't work

it looks like the same rack that nashbar is offering. My idea of having a mount is not to carry the weight -or at least fully, but to stabilize the load. I don't think I will get into brazing or...
