No, in my lair under the swimming pool. They is going to be fruity.
Do you have sharks with frikkin laser beams on their heads. I can get you a hot deal if you don't


I'm not sure if they'll get on with my cat, and the new butler; he's got dentures.

Have you ever seen a cx bike with tubeless Stans rims, built on custom Dave Fischer Campy / Disc hubs (with new, proto Fischer freebub) and 45c rear, 2.1front tyres?

This bike is going to go anywhere.

No but it will get you killed.

Would you prefer a ditch, or a nice shaded glen and being covered in leaves. I thought I'd be nice and give you a choice for your final resting place

I'm really liking that Orange w white decalls actually! It'd be quite a cool contrast to the Track bike.

It'll be Campy too... mmm. I'm pretty sure that a 45c will have a strong enough casing to run stan's.

Interesting. Have been meaning to try set my cyclocross wheels up stans but never got around to it. What find of pressures do you expect to run? I'd imagine that will play a big part to its success or otherwise.

One change is going to be the need to run MTB cranks, due to the clearance you need with larger tyres. They'll likely be the FSA KForce 2x9... 29x44.

With a compact drop bar. Drop bar. This thing is going to be all kinds of fun down Split Enz.

Probably only as a puncture sealant? I was told by the Stan's Oceania rep a few years back that they'd had some pretty nasty failures when testing on the road, as they'd not factored in how much the tube contributes to the structural integrity of a road tyre.

Might work with the new Hutchinson tyres on non-tubeless rims though?

Actually I take that back. Ya the hutchies will work on any rim. Tho I bet you could get a armadillo to work. It'll still weigh 4 million pounds tho

Nice caption. Also better than Rotorua summers.

I'm going w00t because my cross bike delivery just got confirmed for September. A bit of a wait, but Sean only builds 85 frames a year...

I can't wait.
