  • a wiki style reference would be outstanding. Surly's "spew" section is decent, however it's a bit of a blog, no so much a easy reference. Being able to create a "Hub" in all things cargo/utility cycling would definitely be of value. I could only imagine an XtraCycle app. On Sep 1, 2014, at 11:51 AM, "Ross Evans ross@^$1 [ROOTSRADICALS]" < ROOTSRADICALS@^$2 > wrote: I've been...

  • Tyres are like flip flops It seems that I go round and round with tyres. However on the BD I've settled on some schwalbe marathons. I think they are the extreme version. They seem to be a decent choice. I've been on them for over a year now. In the past I'd opt for something like a sefras drifter or wtb mutanoraptor if I was doing a bunch of dirt. Another favorite is wtb vulpine...

  • typically I place the bike stand clamp on the "tongue" of an XtraCycle, where the bike is balanced.

The front wheel is off the ground for front end work. For chain lube etc. you can rock it forward and prop it up or weight the front...

  • starting from the obvious: assuming new chain(s) that match drivetrain. when I had first converted a Cdale F900, the bike was in the perfect condition for a utility bike morph. that being... it was a worn out bike. Which provided some issues. of course a new chain and cogset did not like to play well a very worn XT middle ring. the solution was to rebuild the bike. if things are...
