So I bought an old dobermann frame off a local guy last fall hoping to get back into DJ thinking It was one of the 24/26 compatible frames they did. Turns out it’s a 24 specific frame so if I can’t figure out a way to stuff a 26 in their I’m gonna have to buy a new frame. Kind of blows
I did this back in 2012. Definitely more headache than it's worth. I was able to get a wheel in the dropouts but figuring out chain tension was difficult!

I think christianwallis did something similar when illbike welded a 24" rear end to his, suposedly, 26" frame by mistake he solved it by running a 1.95 tire rear and a half link chain and a lot of thoughts and prayers

Does anyone know of any cranks available that will fit the sram gxp pf92 bb? I have one glued into my frame (bike shop suggestion) so don't really want to get a new bb. Can't find any 165mm sram cranks anywhere that aren't dub.

A bike shop advised you to glue your BB in!?

Bearing retention compound or certain types of locktite are correct when installing a PF BB, not grease. Pinkbike always wonders why their shit creaks; that's why.

yep. The Kenda Komfort tire helped since it’s a really low profile. Honestly kinda miss that frame, but it’s moved on Michal and he’s done a great job building it up.

Wheels makes great stuff and I tend to trust them for nearly everything, but I'm with sherbet here. Loctite/bearing retainer compound on the install is the way to shut up a pressfit creaky bottom bracket.

I have their bb30 to 24mm conversion bb so I could use my old Atlas cranks and I think I prefer this style versus even an old fashioned threaded.

Thanks Christian, so stoked that you like how it turned out. I get it though, sometimes you miss the bike a lot......if you ever really, really, really want the frame back we can talk of course. Just know that I love it just about as much as you, I'm sure, so it went to someone who appreciates her. As for the tire issue, it was kinda funny with how it worked out for me. I can swear that when you were telling me about the frame and the tire clearance you said Kenda Kranium....looking back at the messages, you did say Komfort, hahaa. Anyway, I got 2.1 Kraniums and when they arrived I wanted to check the fitment to make sure it would work because if not, I was just going to order PowerBlocks as a replacement. However, I didn't have the rim to build the rear wheel yet so I used the rear wheel from another bike I was building concurrently (that one has been sitting unfinished for months, can't afford cranks to finish her, lol). So with the borrowed wheel, I could tell that the Kranium would work and I was stoked. Didn't take the Kranium off the borrowed wheel because I figured I would do it when the rear was finally built for the iLL. So I just installed the donor wheel back on the other roller of a bike and every time I saw the Kranium on the other bike, I just liked it too much, hahaa. So that's why the stamped iLL has Cult Vans 2.1, hahaa. In the end I got the Vans instead of PowerBlocks because I like trying everything and hadn't tried the Vans yet. The Vans fitment was perfect with a Shadow Supreme half-link right off the bat, so stoked.

thoughts on the ns soda slope?

So my bike came with BMX cranks as standard but I'm maybe thinking about a seam xo or something alike to shed some weight. Can you get single speed chain rings for Mtb chainrings or will I need a geared chain?
