Fork feels better than any Float 40 and has absolutely no stanchion wear.

Mail Order Madness - Are Wiggle Buying Chain Reaction Cycles?
With the number of Englishmen commenting on this article, one would hope that at least one other person noticed the glaring grammar error in the title: "Are Wiggle" should read "Is Wiggle". Come on, Pinkbike.

Santa Cruz Hightower - First Ride
Awesome bike. I bleed Santa Cruz... but integrated headset?? Seriously?? WTF!!?? I really hope this is not a sign of things to come. I get it.. the stack height needs to be as low as possible. Okay, fire a ZS44 top and ZS56 bottom in there. IS headsets are the worst :(

Mostly stock. Brakes were replaced with TRP CX8.4 mini V's. Brand new tires - Bontrager All Weather RL's 28c. New chain, newish shifter cables and housing. Wider than stock drop bar, and 100mm Truvativ Stylo T20 stem. Ridden very little for two seasons. Dumped a couple times in wet corners so the bar tape and hoods are slightly scratched.

Not much is stock on this Mukluk 3. Custom drilled Rolling Darryls - 32mm. Orange Surly rim strips. Tires are Surly Nates, 120tpi, folding, studded with #1000 Grip Studs. Front tire has two rows of studded side knobs (total 152 studs) for insane cornering control on ice. Rear tire has 76 studs on centre knob pairs for climbing/brake traction. Brakes are Elixir 9's, front one comes with a carbon lever, freshly bled, new brake pads, work great! I kept the X5 crankset and front derailleur, but shifters and rear derailleur/cassette/chain are all 10 speed XO. Handle bar is a 29.5 inch Bontrager Rhythm Pro carbon; mounted on a Easton Haven stem - 70mm. Chromag Lynx DT saddle, ODI TLD grips, and pedals are included - 45NRTH Heiruspecs. I'm keeping the bottle cage.

Custom fixie: 1980's Nishiki Rally frame - paint stripped, cable guides removed, clear coated. Random components. Front brake because I'm a pussy. The only thing of value is the wheelset. Masi BREV single speed wheels with decals removed - ridden lightly for a season. Buy this bike just for the wheels alone and throw the rest away. Or put some pedals on and ride it. Bike has a newish Ritchie headset and some sort of Shimano Octalink crankset with a pretty good bottom bracket.
