Chromag Announces Doctahawk, a Super Aggressive 180mm, 29er Hardtail
Obviously, back when people were putting dual crowns on their 243 Racing and Banshee Morphine and whatever else the geometries were completely different and not optimized for those forks. Those bikes may have worked in certain scenarios but would have been limited in versatility. They certainly would not have been pleasant to climb on.

Chromag Announces Doctahawk, a Super Aggressive 180mm, 29er Hardtail
I offer kudos and big thumbs up to Chromag for this thing. 1. More than a few of you think the chainstays are too short. I formerly had an On One 456 Summer Season (64 deg. head angle with 160mm fork) and loved everything about it EXCEPT for the 424mm long chainstays. Should've been at least 5mm shorter in my opinion. I get the impression that most who complain about short chainstays have never ridden them nor taken the time to adapt (yes, they actually do require more skill, duh). 2. Some of you think this thing won't climb with that slack head angle. My On One was a phenomenal climber. Head angle isn't everything. 3. Was formerly considering a Canfield Yelli Screamy. Poor Canfield isn't doing much of anything these days, afaik. This would've been the Yelli Screamy on steroids. 4. Would love to hear from Chromag regarding the handling differences between the two fork offsets.

This is the rotor I bought from georgi-g (Pinkbike user) in Baltimore, Maryland. The aluminum spider was bent, there was the quite visible crack as per this pic, and there were multiple edge deformations as if someone had tried to true the rotor with an adjustable wrench. Georgi was completely unapologetic and willing only to refund the price of the rotor, not the shipping. Had to open a dispute with PayPal, they decided in my favor and gave me a refund for the rotor and the original shipping. Lost a couple dollars to return the rotor to Georgi. Throughout it all he has been an utter pain to deal with and has never admitted fault or taken responsibility for selling a shit item.

Performance Forte Kor bar ends

$10 USD
These barends have an aluminum locking collar, a plastic body, and are covered in rubber (very comfortable and great grip). I ground out the end caps so that they could be mounted in reverse fashion: pointing backwards, and pointing out. If you've never been exposed to this arrangement you'd be amazed: I'm able, when honking (standing up and really putting out the torque), to run 2 to 3 gears higher than otherwise. Simply take a look at powerlifters, who sometimes use trap bars to do their deadlifts: the hands are oriented with the palms facing inwards towards the body. But, you could simply use these in typical fashion as everyone else does, too. Selling these, because I'm doing more trialsy type riding, and these poke backwards and are problematic for riding like that. Price is firm, and shipping is additional. Please send your postal code if you'd like a quote.

Problem Solvers MisMatch Adaptor 1.2 shifter to brake

$20 USD
Problem Solvers part # BR0393 https://problemsolversbike.com/products/brakes/mismatch_-_30797 This is for mountain bike applications and will enable you to mount your MatchMaker compatible Sram shifter to a Shimano I-Spec brake lever. This is for the right shifter. Mounting the shifter to the brake lever greatly cleans up the handlebar appearance and in some cases enables you to get the proper setup between the two, whereas originally the clamps for each other might have interfered with that. Please make sure you have viewed the link above and are sure of compatibility with your particular brakes. This is new in its package. Price is firm, and shipping is additional. Please send me your postal code if you'd like a quote.

custom inner chainguide plate E13 adapter

$15 USD
Located in Alameda!!! I've changed my profile, but my new location is not showing in this ad. This is a custom inner chainguide that I used on my Giant STP dirtjumper. It is an E13 bottom bracket ISCG mount that has pvc plates bolted to it. The problem with 1x chainguides is that they don't prevent the chain from popping off the bottom of the chainring. If you never backpedal it's not a problem. Otherwise.... Much simpler, lighter, cleaner than a full-on chainguide system but with a lot more security than a 1x guide. This worked very well and allowed me to securely run gears on my bike without any chain issues up front. This is designed for running a 32 tooth middle ring on a triple crankset. It requires a threaded bottom bracket to sandwich the E13 mount to the frame. You cannot run a granny ring. You can possibly run a middle and big ring with a front derailleur, but I only ever ran this with a single ring, up front. Price is firm, shipping is extra.
