    When you're going as slow as I am these days, you notice all the stranger things. Annadel State Park.

    Forgot to update this:
    LBS had a bontrager wheel for $95 + a new rotor $15 because its 6 bolt vs center lock on the old. That was less than the wheel I found online and will probably be A-okay for me as long as I don't crack it again. Also got to keep the old wheel for tinkering

    Haven't gotten to ride yet, moved back to VA today, and it just rained a bunch. Hopefully next week will be nice

    I had to re-dish this wheel and play around with the shim washers and jamb nuts To get the brake disk to align.

    Since this hub is narrower than the original I also had to bend the stays in about half an inch. I used the old rope tourniquet method.

    I started by using a big C-clamp & padding, but that is just clumsy and stupid. The rope method doesn’t scratch anything and it is very convenient and not nearly as awkward.

    It’s a lot shinier without the ugly black hub, derailleur, and cog set.

    But I can’t get a chain adjustment with these drop outs, and so a little frame modification must come next.

    Even with a very sloppy chain, I did get it out for a short slow ride. All the gears work but of course I can’t step on the pedals without making the chain skip.

    Yep, made to look like he's holding the rock. Came across him on a trail in eastern MA.

    In order to keep the dual front sprocket that I was forced to have a chain tensioner.

    Currently it is in the form of my old derailer which I have locked in position with a scrap of ratty cable.

    The three-speed hub somehow works with the Shimano shifter in 3,5 or 7, and it seems extremely sturdy. I was able to stand on it in top gear, which is quite tall, with no feeling of frailty whatsoever.

    The ugly shifter cable clamp is scratching the frame. This will change.

    aside from the obvious minor warts that I must correct, & the fact that I’m still running a bunch of ugly black gear, I’m really happy with the way the bike works now.

    The investment in the Sturmey hub doesn’t seem like quite the boondoggle that it was $300 ago.

    Of course that rear wheel and tire assembly probably weighs as much as an entire carbon fiber bicycle. But this is an exercycle and not a racing cycle. The heavier it is the more exercise I get.

    Dude! That is freakin awesome! Love it! Beautiful spot and beautiful fish! There are so many spots here in New Mexico that I have plans for bikepacking into with my fly rod! These photos just made the itch worse!

    Gravel and road ride in Santa Cruz. It sucked to have to skip all the fun stuff but it was still good to get out and get some sun.

    We were over at their house yesterday, and helped with the instal of the original Yepp mini. So I took some comparison pics.

    Here's what I noticed. Yepp og vs Nexxt
    - They're not interchangable.
    - OG seat is made if a Rubber/ Foam like material that is very soft & flexible. The strenght come from the metal (steel?) frame surounding the seat's frame. The Nexxt is all EPS material, like a helmet.
    -OG has an additional red release button
    -Key lock lock is in a different location
    -Nexxt model has magnetic buckle.

    I got to break in a few new parts over the last few days - to include a new Rockshox Lyric and Super Deluxe Ultimate, Maxxis Forekaster V2 rear tire w/ Cushcore XC, and Galfer Pro pads and Wave rotors.

    Curious to hear your feedback on the V2 Forekaster. Really liked V1 as a front but could not deal with the lack of braking traction on the rear. New one looks promising.

    So far I'm pretty impressed! I didn't care for the V1 in 2.35" but the 2.6" was good for XC - just not my favorite tire size. I think this tire is incorrectly compared to the Ground Control and Wicked Will - the Rekon is a better comparison for those tires.

    It's a solid trail bike tire, (especially as a rear) and has the weight and braking/cornering traction to be a great rear tire to match to a DHF/DHRII/etc.

    Very cool. We think similarly it seems, 2.6 FK up front is great on my 35mm internal wheels, just not my favorite setup. Bikepacking, yup. Going fast, meh. Love the Rekon in 2.6 though. Thanks for the info.
