I’d say Stans 30mm tape would be ideal. This is from Stans FAQ: Which width tape should I use? “The widths of our tape are selected with our rims in mind. Generally, we recommend tape that is 1-2mm wider than the internal width of your rim to account ... more »

The original 2012 XX1 had clutch issues and I had a hack that helped: remove the clutch cover with an o-ring pick, unfasten the retaining bolt with an 8mm hex, then add a thimble sized amount of chain lube, reinstall the parts in reverse order, and cycle ... more »

M1900 rims are 30 mm inner width? If so 1 inch gorilla tape is too narrow (25 mm). Go for wider tape I’d say. Stans do a 33 mm tape.

Good question - technically your tyres are optimised for the 30s so I would go for those. Having said that, some DH & Enduro riders run wide rubber on EX471 rims @ 25mm inner width.

Wonder if ZEB will be marketed as an e-bike specific fork, with the same fork re-badged for the normal MTB crowd as err Totem?

Looks like the catalog had an update and ZEB has been pulled - no sign of it that I can see.

This was good for me - useful tips when faced with minimal resources. Is the Lyrik repainted too?

Looks like those shoes are Five Ten Sleuth slip-ons, comfortable but no protection - fashion indeed....

Tyres look interesting - Vee Rubber is from Thailand, I’ve recently ridden in Chiang Mai and the local riders had the same prototypes. Maxxis is a brand of CST, from Taiwan.

The standard SRAM shifter bar clamp is much skinnier than the Matchmaker version in the pic. This would improve compatibility.
