    If you're considering a Landcruiser, I'd throw the WTB Nano 700x40 in the mix. I use the tubeless (TCS) version but I know people using the standard folding model. It rolls pretty well and does fine...

    I don't know about those old Spinergy Spox for a gravel or CX bike. I can just see one tacoing after hitting a big pothole or landing a bunnyhop.

    Sorry to hear about the crash.

    You put your foot down when the front and/or rear goes, not your arm. If you can't get your foot out in time, yep, it's perfectly normal and land on your shoulder,...

    I have a rigid bike that I loan to others. I've had it a long, long time.

    I rode it once a few years ago and it beat the living hell out of me going 1/2 the speed. Not repeating that experiment.

    I saw that bike quite recently on MTBR... which means... you are under a different username there. I'm not, so I'm easy to find. :)

    The models you want to look for are S902 or S952 for carbon arms, or S500 / S550 for forged AL. They might say 'wide axle' or 'S series'.

    On a smoother road, yes.

    The Trigger does not hook up in mud or loam very well at all. Typical for file tread. The Nano is no mud spike, but it does much better than the Trigger or similar tires...

    Quite a few road forks are that way now.

    Good call on the PF30 -> English threaded conversion, btw. That's what I would do.

    I don't have carbon cranks on other bikes, so I wanted to try these. The bike ended up 10.7kg / 23.7lb which is not bad for a having a suspension fork and aluminum frame.

    It's really hard for the Bantam to compete with single pivot bikes made by the Big 4. They have a lot more volume and get aluminum frames a LOT cheaper than Santa Cruz, with lower numbers of defects....

    It's how the lower rear mount moves in strictly linear fashion, so there is no rotation of the mounts at all.

    I believe the Bantam is being cancelled for 2016. Might be a concern for resale value, since the bike is single pivot and most people buy SC for VPP.

    If you have a heavy crash, I'd be worried about that stem riser. In your OP you say 'only' 75mm, but 75mm is actually a whole lot of stem to be above the head tube. Most frame & fork manufacturers...

    that's a bit excessive.

    What kind of drivetrain are you going to run? The reason I ask is that 11 speed road cassettes require a different hub than what you're thinking.

    Or, if you're trying to run a SRAM 10-42 11 speed...

    if you want eyelets for that rear rack, your pickings are very slim, indeed. surly crosscheck would be my choice.

    actually, I would forget about the cantis and get a surly straggler.
