    As you mentioned, SS, so not good for 120m rides. Tho' you could lace a wider range IGH in the back wheel. Polo & Mercier might be workable for your height, but I'd have to caution against the...

    Some better options, if you're specifically looking for a 29r. However, I'd suggest going to your local bike shop first and seeing what they have. My shop gets in a lot of used bikes for resell. It's...

    Fat bikes are cool(pardon the pun). :thumb: But don't understand the "shred session" reference; that was basically a hard-pack path cut through the woods. Would've been easy for the average kid on a...

    I do like the look of disc brakes on 20"ers, or any bicycle for that matter. Just think it's a cleaner look than V-brakes & such. However, with these wheels I do like the drum brakes; highlights the...

    Yes, there is a bit of lateral deflection. You can actually reach down from the seat and push the front rim a half inch or so to the side. Very strange. When holding the front end off the ground and...

    Yeah, those Bullys are great. Really like what you've done with yours(been following it in different threads...). I'm on the lookout for one, or a Hooligan. Actually found a mint Hooligan,...

    The fixie looks like a good option, but I'm thinking now that it wouldn't work. My Loopwheels, with the fat Hookworms, probably aren't much smaller in overall diameter than these 451's; I need about...

    Yeah, mostly comparing to alum. Cost-wise too(for a fabricator). Have you seen seen/rode one of the Alton SS's? Thinking that might be a good route, since I'll be dumping almost all the components on...

    Those Gaaps are cool. :thumb: That one listed for about $1800 on their website, several years ago. Not too bad, considering the features & engineering. The Gaap Sonic was very neat too. Wish I had...

    That's pretty cool. Seems to have a similar BB height as my Raleigh. The newer full suspension bikes generally have higher BB's, but I wanted a full rigid frame for this build up, as I thought it...

    It's a Sturmey Archer X-RD3(3spd), with 70mm drum brake and 177% gear ratio. I have a fairly small front sprocket; would probably want to go much bigger for longer rides/regular commutes. The short...

    Yes, this is true. Didn't mean to imply otherwise, on my earlier post. Was only stating that differences of a few mm's could be influenced as much by sole thickness. Thicker shoes will decrease the...
