I put a hot dog in the leg of my boxxer to serve as a softer bottom-out elastomer. It adds a little water weight but it feels really plush now....

My 831 is hitting my Mob frame when I spin the bars. It doesn't stop completely, but it is noticeable. I have an internal headset, so my steer tube is already cut too short for an external. I really don't want to have to grind down the corner of the blue anodized compression knob. Has anyone had a similar problem?

Sketchy! Bust out the file.

spankthewan: one dude on a swedish forum im member on had the same issue but on his Tweet Tweet and he made spacers for the steerercrown to stack the headset but its not a solution i would recomend you. Fabricate your oun set of caps insted of doing something irrational.

Sand papered pedals rock, especially in the wet. Good work.

Just removed the cable guides and rim brake bosses from my old Ellsworth hardtail (run it single speed). Custom paint coming next.

Is that the one you rode in the Jib series? I think I'll have to dig up those videos sometime soon.

Yeah, same one. Now it serves as my wife's BMX/skatepark machine.

Got sick of the fork on my XC bike not getting full travel so I hacksawed the compression rod down to increase the air capacity. Works perfectly now
