    I haven`t made any additions to the bike yet. The Muirwoods comes with Schwalbe Citizen 622-40 tires. These are almost slicks with little tread. Today, I was running the back tire at almost max...

    Handlebar vibration

    Took my new Marin Muirwoods 29er out for it`s first long ride today. One thing I noticed, that I don`t experience on any of my other bikes, is quite of bit of vibration through the handlebars.

    IMO the best value for the budget conscious is a Dahon Boardwalk D7 or D8. I have two 2010 D7`s in my (small) rental bike fleet and plan to add 2 or 3 of the 2015 model once released. Simple with...

    IthaDan - thanks for posting that Ebay link. That`s definitely the model headset - it doesn`t seem to come with a top cover. In the shop, I took a look at some of the other Muirwoods on the floor...

    So, after all that, rpenmanparker is right. According to the shop this headset doesn`t come with, nor does it need a bearing cover. This was confirmed by someone at Marin Japan. Looks a bit sloppy...

    That must be it. Can`t see how the shop could have neglected this. Will bring it in later today.

    Thanks!

    Not a washer and there`s nothing special about the spacers (no slot or anything). I`ll bring it over the shop later today and see what they say - though I expect it won`t be much more than the usual...
  18. New bike - headset spacers not flush with top race

    The spacers should sit flush on top of the race, right?

    Is it the compression ring that is showing and preventing this?

    Thanks - the Kona regular size bags look like they might work. I'm thinking maybe Edgerunner bags would work better because they are made for the small 20" wheels - just not sure if I could get them...

    I think she`d prefer bigger bags that could just be left on the bike. Something like a Yuba Go-Getter but it`d have to be much smaller to avoid heel strike on this bike.
