9-5 Ruins Lives
First overnight with the bikepacking setup, the nearly 4,000' of climbing nearly broke me but good times!
You lucky barstard! What an awesome setup! What's the frame and fork?
Drop bar bike geometry needed a major update. Call me crazy but I’d like to see a road bike with a dropper and a much longer wheelbase.Thanks! Salsa Cutthroat with their carbon fork it comes with. Absolutely love this bike, most comfortable drop bar bike I've ever owned even though it's technically a 29'er mtb.
As someone who struggles to efficiently pack everything needed for car camping, mad respect.
phhh...looks like Glamping!
Whoa! Looking forward to seeing the build, can't say I've seen a fork quite like that. Funny how it's tapered too!The fork for my new whip. Powdercoated matte clear, to retain the heat marks. The frame is midnight blue metallic and I have a brown and gunsmoke colored saddle for it. Gold handlebar tape to tie the whole thing together with the smoky and brass fork. Going to look totally Klunk-riffic.

It's a cool fork. He's been making them for about 5 years. James does a lot of adventure type riding where the reliability of a rigid fork is paramount, so this what he came up with. Since the 1/4" plates are out of phase, there is minimal travel, so extremely low risk of failure. Great for gravel and flow, better than rigid for anything else dirt related. He has sold a LOT of them since it hit the market.Whoa! Looking forward to seeing the build, can't say I've seen a fork quite like that. Funny how it's tapered too!
