    Road Bike Build

    Well its been a year or so since Ive done a bike build. For the last couple months I have been able to ride everyday. Even though I try to get to the dirt as much as I can, most days I'm riding on the road. I have an old full squish 94 StumpJumper FSR that I put street tires on, but on longer...

    Cheap fat suspension forks...

    So a buddy bought me one of these forks a couple years ago, and I tried it, and hated it…. It sat in the garage until I recently started to rebuild my full suspension Beast. Because its 3 pounds lighter that the fork I was using before, I wanted to see if it could be improved at all…. So I...

    Summer Ebike Build?

    Im kicking around the idea of building a fat Ebike this summer. I have some time to think about it since I need to put some $$$ into my truck before I do another bike build. I have this frame: I would mount a rear wheel on the front of this bike, since it has 135mm front spacing. And I...

    (ORBO) Massif Build finished

    I started this build because my 8 year old was outgrowing his 20" BMX style Specialized. We had this bike for a while, but it was so heavy that he almost couldn't and surly didn't like to ride it. Now its setup for him, and 8 pounds lighter! Short ride video: List of mods...

    Which Brake Levers Do I Need?

    On my Klunker build I am going to have a Disc brake in the front, and a drum brake in the rear. I know that I need a brake lever for V-brake/disc for the front, but will that work on the drum, or do I need a canti style lever for the drum?

    (ORBO) Mid Fat Klunk Plus

    Since my first BO entry if done, and I have a frame on the way, time for a second entry. I've always wanted a legit OG Klunker, and that was the inspiration behind this, even though its not vintage. Im starting with this Heavy Duti frame from Ind-chuckz, it should ship today I assume. I...

    Klunker Frame Suggestions

    I want to build a Klunker next. I defiantly want something with a straight bar look, and not too new. A neighbor has a 70s workman frame that he will sell me for $90. Its the one with the double kink down tube. I really like the kink in the top tube, and the fact that you can use a 1-1/8...

    (ORBO) Massif Build

    I saw that there was a Off Road Build Off so I had this thread moves here! I mountain bike, its what I do. My boy has been riding his Specialized Hotrock off road a bit, but as a single speed, he struggles. And he has been bummed a couple times when I do sand or snow rides, and he can't...

    Snow Ride!

    Its a rare opportunity that I get to ride in the snow. The last time I went was over 2 years ago. Well on Monday I got to go up to Big Bear, Ca and ride! They have had over 3 feet of snow in the last week, so it was a little hard to find a trail that had been groomed, but once we did it was...

    Work Gloves

    Last night I was working on my Intense project and had a cut off wheel come apart on me. It cut my hand up pretty good. Of course I didn't have any gloves on, like an idiot. What gloves do you guys wear when working in the garage? I have a set of heavy leather ones that are good for welding...

    A word of caution on overly drilled rims: I had one that stared to fail this weekend! The spoke tension is pulling the rim towards the center and there isn't enough meat to keep the aluminum from bending. This is on the triangle holes rim. The rims I have with the 1.5" holes are holding...
