    Thanks for the compliment!

    The bag is a Carradice Super C. It's made of traditional waxed canvas, but has easy to use plastic buckles instead of the old school leather straps and buckles, which I...

    Agree with that, 1-1/8" threaded was pretty much a dead end construction.

    You need something like this:

    Universal Cycles -- Dimension Rigid Non Disc Fork

    You could either get another threaded setup, or get a new headset and stem at the same time to go threadless.

    It looks super clean in the above picture only because I don't have a light installed. Typically, I just wrap the wire around the fork blade, very un-constructeur like.

    I can't see any reason to ride a narrowish tire. 35mm+ is fine for road riding, more if touring loaded.

    I think you would regret getting a 650B, since, in my experience, they feel basically the same as a 26er, no matter what Mountain Bike Action says.

    Then again, you might regret a fatbike as well,...

    $1000 for a replica vintage bike seems kind of steep. You could buy a real vintage Fat Chance, Breezer, Ritchey, etc for that much.

    If you like that style, the Trek Sawyer is a more modern 29er...

    I love the extra coverage of my Longboards. Yes, they're a little harder to install, but if it taking you hours, maybe fender installation isn't your thing.

    - I don't have any experience with an Ogre, though I had a Karate Monkey for a while. The Ogre uses heavier tubing, which isn't a plus in my book, and they both suffer...

    It's been going well. Not a whole lot of saddle time lately, with the holidays and splitting my riding between this and my newly converted 650B Trek and my fixed gear Crosscheck, but I think the...

    Height has no impact on HT vs. full sus (unless a very short person is trying to get a long travel dually).

    That's exactly correct. 650B is only 1" bigger in diameter than a 26er, so it doesn't take a very big tire to make up the difference.

    People have reported the B side can fit the 26 x 2.75" Dirt Wizard... that's a pretty big tire. If you really want 4" tire compatibility, you're looking at a specific fat bike frame (with a 100mm...

    That orange was apparently only a prototype color; the production bike only comes in green.

    Trekking bars may have a million hand positions, but gawd are they ugly.

    I don't have any feedback on the Albastache bars--I'm actually waiting for them to get in stock so I can try a pair myself....

    I don't know anything about the Diverge. I much prefer the AWOL's sloping top tube and (I think) lighter weight tubing vs. the stiff, traditional touring bike of the LHT.

    It's definitely not as stout as the LHT. The tubes are smaller diameter, and (I think) thinner wall. In the Camargue's favor, it's designed for a front or front biased load, so it doesn't need to be...

    25mm is the diameter difference between 650B and 26", so somehow putting on 650B would only raise the BB up by 12.5mm.
