    If you're trying to take the buzz out, run bigger tires with less air. I did this on my 1st 'cross bike I got back in 2008. Came stock with Kenda Kwick 700x30 folding tires.

    I don't weigh a lot...

    I used to have this on my 29er. It's a Sette Ride 'post. Took the edge off while on and off-road. Fully adjustable. Not sure they sell them anymore. This was in 2010-2011.

    Maybe the 'tubes have a slow leak. Swap them out and see. It's all a process of elimination.

    I used to have a J and D (aka Jandd) trunk bag and their expedition rack on my Bianchi hybrid. Great bag. Held a lot and it and the rack fit like a glove.

    I agree 100%. But like I said in the previous post (and I wasn't being sarcastic), "a deflated tire is not a flat tire."

    I rather have a deflated tire than a slashed tire/tube. Find out who it is...

    They actually charge? I called years ago when I got my 1st Road Morph and they sent one for free.

    No need to apologize Tom. I've asked many questions myself.

    I've seen videos of people applying it before a bike build. So after paint is fine. You sure wouldn't want to do it before powder coating though. :D

    I dropped off a steel MTB frame & fork yesterday to get powder coated. Prior to this, I did notice some rust down the seat tube on top of the BB. I soaked it overnight with some Evapo-Rust.

    Just dropped off the frame & fork. Guy I spoke to on the phone is the same coater. He showed me everywhere he'll plug and mask. I explained about the crown area and said he'll take care of it.

    I took a photo of the fork crown. I've never removed a crown race before, but I noticed the fork crown is ribbed. Will the 'blasting damage this?

    Thanks for the quick replies. This place does bikes and has plugs and proper knowledge on how to 'coat 'em. But I'm still gonna make sure everything will be plugged and masked when I drop it off.

  16. powder coating and proper masking on fork question

    I know powder coating goes on thicker than paint and want to avoid problems getting the new crown race to seat properly.

    So I'll tell them to 'blast off the factory paint and mask it off so it...

    I used to run this on the streets, MTB trails, you-name-it. Crashed in 2010 while jumping and shattered (literally) my elbow. I got more messed up than the bike did. :lol:

    I'm thinking the only reason they used that bracket is because a clamp-on would of interfered with mounting a bottle cage there.

    I'm assuming the seat tube clamp size is 28.6mm for a front derailleur? This bike came with a FD bracket mounted between the BB and crankset.
