    This is super-useful and just what I wanted to hear. I will be using a Chris King headset. Any worries?

    Exactly. I want a high rake fork (for low trail) when I'm carrying a front bag and potentially panniers on my lowriders. I want a low rake fork (for high trail) for "fast" riding, trails, and 'cross...

    "Quick"-change fork

    I found a Gunnar Crosshairs frame and "NOS" Alpha Q fork for a steal. I've been looking for a cross bike for trails and possibly racing next season, so it was a no brainer.

    I currently use an '88...

    I installed a Brooks C17 Carved in black last night on my road bike (vintage steel Ciocc Designer 84 with modern Shimano 6700 components). It has about 2 inches drop to the bars. I previously had a...

    First of all, that Monk is awesome.

    On your mountain bike point, you may be correct - I rode my old Surly Cross Check on a local trail and it went "okay". I didn't have enough standover, but I...

    I typically just carry the essentials in my rando bag - wallet, keys, cell phone, NiteRider, a snack or two, and a few misc. things.

    I am probably overthinking the trail thing, but I would rather...

    Just what I was worried about! Not sure if n+1+1 is possible though.

    I certainly have, but it doesn't do the offroad thing of Hypothetical Stable Number 1 and seems to burly for Hypothetical Stable Number 2. I will add that too the list and consider it a bit more...

    Thanks for the tips! The Geax Booze Light looks good. Not as wide as the Hookworm, but seems to be a good compromise.

    I'll keep my eyes peeled for those Snowcat rims. That's basically what I'd...

    I thought this may be a problem (hence the post). If it is a problem (which it seems to be), I'll likely suck it up and use mechanical BB7s.

    I mostly wanted the widest slicks available. I'm willing to think about something else, for sure. I guess I should go back to looking at Big Apples or similar.

    Please make some suggestions on...
  19. Suggestions for Really Wide Rims (for Rim Brakes?)

    I am going to build up a Surly Troll soon for commuting, camping, mountain biking, and everything in between.

    The goal is to run smooth Maxxis Hookworms (26x2.5) for commuting and the widest tires...

    Thanks, everyone. I'll probably grab a Nitto Periscopa (which has sub-2.5" minimum insertion line), but it is good to know that others generally think it will be okay.

    After some measuring, it seems I need the bottom of the stem to minimum insertion line to be approximately 2.5 inches instead of the 3 inches that are pretty common on stems.

    I have a old Nitto...

    Well, these things certainly have liberal safety factors, but I would hate to do anything but abide by the minimum insertion and have something happen to her.

    What do others think?

    It is a 19 inch (48 cm) frame. I'll get you the relevant measurements when I get home from work (how much insertion, headset, etc).

    Ideally, I wouldn't cut the Nitto stem simply because I can...

    Minimum Insertion to Bar Height Ratio

    Hello all!

    My wife rides a 1984 Trek 660 road bike. She's not a fan of drop bars despite my attempts, so we switched her to mustache bars. The consensus seems that you have to get mustache bars up...
