More Info:
Fender dimensions measured as follows 46.3 mm fender inter width 52.8 mm fender outer width 22 mm approx fender height Changed out a few things, front rack/basket life is the best, weight limit for the front end is ~30kg which is maxed out with groceries(although ti bolts and the heavy fork aid probably increase the load limit/safety factor associated). I normally just keep my locks in the basket. It’s a nice overflow specs for layers, stuff I find on the side of he road or if I fill all my bags. The Vee tire I had on lasted a year or so, I then put on some Compass Snoqualmie Pass tires normal, which only lasted 3 months for the rear. I wore out another set of panaracer gravel Kings (6months) untill settling on the specialized tire. The sidewalls are not supple and they are boat anchors, but seem durible. Now running tubes for commuting and all; I’m lazy.

Chris King InSet 1 Headset, thinking a lighter weight fork, probably a spork fork, which would mean an InSet 7(for the tapered steer). Cheers
