Some people I knew saw my wide range 8 speed cassette and asked me to make them a 9 speed one.
A lot of people don’t realize it but a lot of 10 speed hubs have enough material to remove a little bit and turn it into an 11 speed freehub body.
A customer came to me with an interesting project. He wanted an older Fox Terralogic Damper inside a modern day 27.5 wheeled Fox fork.
Here’s the thing, you can get fork bushings relatively cheaply but the tools cost an insane amount of money. Here’s a cheaper but highly functional alternative to what’s currently out there.
Every now and again someone needs a shock length that isn’t readily available. Here’s how I made a 9×3 shock out of a stock 8.5×2.5.
Over the past while I’ve heard it being called for again and again. Why don’t they make a high quality 8 speed drivetrain? You could bang shifts out with confidence every time because of the longer cable pull for each shift. There would be lots of allowance for all types of bad stuff like if the ride gets muddy, the cable gets corroded or if you bend your derailleur hanger. You could ride through a swamp and the thing would just keep on working. Chains would return to being thicker and wouldn’t break as often. And how about if it could fit on a standard HG freehub body? Backpedaling quickly during sketchy moments on technical climbs wouldn’t result in the chain dropping off the biggest gear. How about if it could be a wide range 1X system that’s light-weight with a cassette that has an aluminum spider? Well folks, here it is.
Some bike fitting specialists I know asked me to make them a wheel riser. Here it is.
This knock can happen to any Rockshox Monarch. Let me show you what’s going on.
This is a simple little part that I came up with for those people that ended up with a steerer tube slightly too short for whatever reason. Here it is.
Some of the Monarch RT3’s come with a reasonably stiff lockout when new but a lot of them don’t stay that way for long. Here’s why that happens and what can be done about it.
