This was a picture when I had the 9C and was testing out the new controller. I thought it was a cool picture so here you go. Over 1700 Miles so far.. which covered probably 3-4 major reworks. I'm a bit sick of the triangle enclosure and am exploring a modular hot swappable 6p26s M1 pack that is mounted to the downtube.
Does anyone have any objection to putting a 26" fork on a 29er frame? I thought it might be a good idea since I'm going to run something <=26" in the back before long to improve efficiency. I'm in the market for a new fork (probably a '12 reba) but unsure on size. I feel like getting a 26" will be more reuseable in my future projects, and it might handle better and withstand braking forces better (less flex).
If you have a nice front suspended fork, is there really any real reason to run large volume tires? I was reading the technical manual for rockshox, and it seems I may be able to push a 2150mm circumference tire and still be within the envolope/clearance specifications. I mention this because is that IF i get a 26" fork, I'm not in a hurry to dismantle the 700c DH wheel I just made. Schwalbe makes some Ebike rated tires (energizer plus) which have 3mm puncture protection which I'm attracted to for just front wheel.
