I'm a TripleT wannabe!
« on: November 21, 2009, 12:29:32 PM »
Finally finished the SS.  Recap the build:  Soul Cycles Dillinger, pearl green, 20" frame, it was a discounted blem (frame was just under 5 lbs. w/EBB).  White Brothers Fluid 110 (have had this fork on two other bikes).  Mavic C-29 wheels (also had them for a while), last on the RIP.  Formula K-18's, last on the RIP.  Stylo cranks, from RIP.  Ergon GX1 grips (New, I like these a lot).  KMC green chain.  Surly spacer kit and cog (20T).  Thomson stem and seatpost (new).  Salsa QR's, and seatpost QR.  Chris King headset (used).  WTB Pure Team (old).  Maxxis Aspen tires (new, just recently released) I think these are going to be a GREAT dry conditions tire






This meant I had some holes to fill for the RIP.  I added some new to me XT cranks with a King of bling BB.  Also got a set of used Avid Elixir CR's, they are black and red, so they had to go on the RIP.  Also needed wheels, so I found a deal I couldn't pass up on a set of Flows and Hope's with red hubs and red nipples.

I will test the ribs again tomorrow at Alafia @8:30
I already think that the Aspens will be my new tire of choice in dry conditions.  They may work year round, but will see.

Nice looking bike Coach.  And another green bike is exactly what we need!  That's going to irk the hell out of Catman.   :D
 
I've heard good things about the Aspens.  Hope they work out for you.

I may try one of those Aspens as a Rear tire like some do Small block 8's.. did you get the 2.10 or 2.25's?

I didn't know there was a 2.25???   I pre-ordered my 2.1's and had to wait until a week ago to get them.  I don't think a larger tire is necessary, but that is me.  I will probably move the front Aspen to the back of the RIP and move the rear Ignitor to the front of the SS.

that sounds like a good combo (igniotor front, Aspen rear) I may try that myself. The Nevegals on my Trance are killing me.. sorry, I forgot you had 29er.. the 2.25 is in 26er only right now...
