I wish they made the cluster fork with disc brake mounts for this reason!

tnts

tnts says:

That would be great. they did only with cantilevers last time. I've been thinking about welding mount to my OG fork.

it was really nice to play polo after a long break anyhow.

Still fresh, +1 on the disc. But a shame not to run the OG forks. Ever thought of having disc tabs brazed on?

I have been planning to put post mounts on the OG, but would need professional help for that.

hi , so i see you have tried both 520 and XT, according to you , which one would you recommend for fixed gear?
Regards

tnts

tnts says:

At first i had 520 in this but they were rubbish. Bearings died in first month. Xt's are way better, but i have been riding 520's for year in my other bikes. These were just an unlucky pair.

ques_one says:

Really dope setup! CXtires and still such a lot of clearance!
What ratio do you run? I tried my sscx in fixed mode but could't find a gear that would be rideable offroad while not making me really slow on tarmac.

tnts says:

Now it runs 47/19 which is ok for commuting. For snowier paths I'm going for 20t in the rear. I'm not riding cx or trails with this.

ques_one says:

Thanks for the advice! Thats pretty much the same compromise I came up with in the end (used 40/16 sprockets though). Guess I`ll just have to learn to spin it even harder, when on the road :D
Cheers!

Yeah. These 35c Kenda's measure 32 mm width. The bars are 64 cm wide. Nice control on the snowy and icy terrains.

Thanks! It was a bit dusty and dirty at the photoshoot, but I think it's ok for a bike to look like it has been ridden. And it has and will be!
