    I'm trying to round up some parts for a 26" rigid ss mtb build.

    ISO:
    - green King headset, 1 1/8th
    - MTB crankset
    - 26" rigid fork, disc, corrected for 100mm suspension
    Or

    I got stranded on the side of a country road for a few hours in the middle of the night during a 600k brevet a while back because of a broken chain...and I had a chain tool!

    Red is good. I can't tell much from the picture, but I like what I see. What are the build plans?

    Wrenching less and riding more? Sounds like a move in the right direction. Enjoy!

    I originally came to this forum looking for info on late 1800's to 19teens bikes. There's not much of that around here, but had Al Gore and the internet been around in the 1940's they'd probably be...

    ISO: 28.6 Shimano clamp (adapter) for a braze-on front derailleur, in silver.

    I'd love to hear the recipe if you don't mind sharing.

    Ha, nice!
    Fortunately, I don't have one to show off but definitely look forward to seeing more of that super sized titanium boron steel.

    Yep, that's the one!

    I never got around to doing anything with it and saw in a thread that obrentharris was looking for something to fit those tires. We chatted back and forth and determined this...

    It seems pretty common that they'll take at least 38's, and the Diamondback that obrentharris posted above is running 43mm knobbies. With that kind of clearance there's not much need for 650b (at...

    Never seen it before, but to me it looks home-made, like the previous owner just drilled and tapped holes.

    It looks like it would be for mounting a bracket for water bottle cages, but I've never actually seen a seatpost like that. The behind-the-seat bottle cage mounts that I've seen (and used when I did...

    I've gone the route of making a shim from aluminum stock and it can work just fine, but the pre-made shims are so much easier and cleaner. Since you're still shopping for a derailleur I would just...

    It works just fine and you'd never know there was shim there if you didn't look at it. In my mind the biggest downside to using a shim to go from 34.9 to 28.6 is the look, but just day to day it's...

    You can definitely shim it. Most new derailleurs come with shims. You might want to check at your LBS to see if they have any.

    Thanks, I've been enjoying it, but I need to find more dirt roads like I see posted on BF all the time.
    It's a Civia Bryant I set up with a 650b wheelset. The saddle is actually an RHM recover.

    Unfortunately not.
    I had the same thought, and may check with the shop, but probably am stuck with the cost.
    On the bright side, at least the tires aren't expensive. I would be especially peeved...

    Quick update.

    Got the Nomads and mounted the front with no issue. Then mounted the rear with about 65psi and the tube had a catastrophic failure (exploded!) for no apparent reason. The hole in it...
