Only complaint about center locks is that they are not compatible with torque caps on the front hub.

Flip upside down and put on top of steerer tube while traveling and then run steerer bolt through?

Tool stays in place and makes you check headset adjustment when you unpack the rig.


This showed up the other day... Litterally haven't unhung my Levo from the bike shop where I hung it 16 months ago.. So I am sure I'll get around to building this SJ Evo up sometime in the next 5 years.

Oh wow now you really need at least one 38 haha

Hell yeah.. The fork is actually the major part that I don't have.. I have a few 10s takeoff groupos and enough Zee/XT/SLX calipers and levers around to get that stuff covered. Then have a set of 350 hubs I could use, shop has Roval hoops I can lace up.

Then I'd need a set of cranks too. Unless I want to commit to buddy's Hammerschmidt.

Just say no to Hammerschmidt.

Goofy park bike is goofy. And he said it's free if I actually use it. Haha

I liked mine. It did have drag in overdrive, but I liked it.

You can drag a brick on a string behind your bike for the same effect.

I hated mine. Obviously bought one first thing, cause what an awesome idea. Not.

I liked the Schmidt... I just didn't like having a 12lb crankset

Industry Nine has CL compatible torque caps. Got em on my bike. However, that does bring to mind one downside - CL limits the size of the bearing on that side, which is more of an issue if you have a hub that uses weird bearing sizes and have to stick to manufacturer kits.

My DT Swiss 180s have CL disks and torque caps.

Or EXT forks, which is a much tougher ask.

Finally landed a new job. Been unemployed since January 16th. Does not feel good. Unemployment benefits only got me about $500 a week.

New job is a shop in Tigard, a little city just South West of Portland. Commute is about 25-35 minutes on the freeway. Kind of a bummer I can't bike commute but oh well. Shop carries Specialized, Scott, Transition, Kona, and Devinci. My first day is tomorrow.
