    are you going the dorito route? One of the postings said they reduced the travel to six inches in the front, and 8 inches in the rear. I think you'd have to do that or get drop crowns made to extend the a2c further.

    4.5" between the seals of my monster! I might have to try something stupid! Plus the rear is 150mm and 100mm spaced!

    got these bad boys in today for the CO2 solution for these fat tires. they are originally made for the moto industry but the inflator is presta and shrader compatible. I threw in a 16 gram for size comparison

    I was able to put 6-10 lbs in a full flat about 5 times before one cylinder ran out. I was able to inflate from 6-10 to 20-25 psi about 3 times with one cylinder.

    considering it takes a floor pump 5 minutes to do the same and the only mini pump i could find the did a decent job was the topeak morph.

    Got some goodies in today,

    The front fender, the frame pack my boots and the pedals (mallet 2)

    Still waiting on the rear fender and some other goodies



    The boots are beast, so glad I got them. When you put them on its like thousands of micro stripper fairys kissing your feet with warmth





    They have 200 gram thinsulate with Cordura and wicking material and a waterproof shell, the inner boot has lacing to the toe and thermal gel insoles.

    since i have been doing alot of early morning riding and almost got creamed by some asian lady in a SUV the other day I decided to use some nifty hints passed onto to me.

    I took out the old rim strip on the clown shoe wheels and decided to make the weight shaving speed holes work for me.

    I replaced it with a lighter and more durable 3m type black reflective tape

    here is the new rim strip without flash



    and here it is with a flash.



    it came out bright as hell but still looks black when not reflecting.
