XC tires and a flat bar.... I must be getting old Wink

Concerned how dry it is already in the PNW, hoping for a light fire season this year.

f*cking summertimes in the mountains, fire, smoke, giant hail, floods and landslides, gotta love global warming.But hoping for a less exciting summer for everyone.

Dragging this over here so I don't clog the other thread.

May or may not have ordered one of these goonish things. Going to run it rigid in the winter as a daily rider, then swap on a fork come spring and make it into an MTB.


Was debating about making a drop bar MTB over the winter, and think I found the perfect project frame. Run it over winter with some fat ass tires and SS, then swap it to a real setup come summer with a suspension fork and drop bars. Wonder how rowdy that'll get!

That's looks about as slack a Lowside as I've ever seen. What size fork you running there? Sick build man.

What tyres have people been able to run in the back of their Surge Evo's with a 27.5" wheel? Was hoping a 2.35" Hans Dampfe and 2.4" DHR2 WT would fit with a bit of room. I'd be running the drop out all the way back.

Bikes do look better without droppers.

I've been running a 2.6 Maxxis Forkaster (27.5) out back on mine, and its got enough clearance for my comfort...and with a rear fender in mud-season! I was pretty careful in selecting the rear tire though, if I remember correctly there were some 2.5 width tires that would have been problematic. Rim width will play a factor when you are fitting tires of this size in the frame. I have 30mm ID rims on mine.

Here's a pic:

Does anyone know if this is a"patientZERO" ? It was posted somewhere a while back. ?

I bet it is. Seatstay brace, super thin seatstays, the way ST and DT join and the brace for the rear brake definitely look like his work.

Really like his work, I cant find a whole lot of info . Must be a small operation.
