    I believe the UCI now mandates that Pro Tour bikes use the exact same forks available to the general public, lawyer lips included. Apparently, the equipment manufacturers have developed long throw...

    As long as we are agonizing over the trivial amount of CO2 (re)introduced into the air by tire inflators, I have a recommendation for those so terribly worried by such things: stop breathing. An...

    Yes they should and motorcycle disc calipers are always mounted in front of the fork legs. Putting it behind the fork legs started with MTB's where the thinking was to protect the caliper from...

    Easton didn't make the frame, they only supplied the tubing. Where (and how) it's welded together is anybody's guess but for only $50 I'd be a bit suspicious of it's quality.

    Good point but the OP never mentioned his son's age. If he is 13 your points are spot on. If he's 25, not so much.

    +100 The compact crank and larger cog will both be useful.

    OK, but the fork in the photos looks like a suspension fork. Is that a rigid fork?

    Not what you asked but a single speed should have both front and rear brakes. Fixies can get away with only a front brake.

    pssyche, the OP wants to do the opposite of what you show. He has a suspension fork and wants to replace it with a rigid carbon fork.

    Your crank's 74 mm BCD will indeed accept a 24T chainring. Lower than that would require an MTB crank.

    I have an '83 Trek lugged steel bike in the family so it's now 32 years old and still in great condition. I bought it used in the late '90's and used it as a beater/errand/rain bike for years and...

    Getting to 90 or 120 psi isn't the problem, it's the sheer volume of air needed to get these fat tires even to 30 psi. Road tire pumps move a very small volume of air per stroke but have the...

    Perhaps that's because you have no idea where the CO2 comes from.

    You would need a "suspension corrected" fork compatible with the travel of your suspension fork, the steerer diameter(s) would have to match, the brake mounts (canti/V-brake studs or disc brake...

    I assume you mean a 16 gram CO2 cylinder. Yes, you could use a frame or mini pump to get some pressure into the tube and then top it off with the CO2 cartridge. They are available in 25 gram sizes...

    Yes, this is the usual size. I didn't mention it because I wasn't sure if it was a universal size or specific to a given make of insert. Usually the proper drill bit is included with the kit.
