New week, new parts! :D

While my German:A fork was sent away to be fixed after leaking oil and it seems to take 2-3 weeks as the mechanic who going to fix it is a week at Eurobike. Not funniest scenario. First the wrong fork, then the right one starts leaking after 3-4 rides 😦

But I have a good friend who borrowed a fork for me. A Fox 32 Talas:

A bit heavier, not so nice color but nice blue parts. And it’s working, the best thing 🙂 100-140mm 26″:

And slam that stem, short fork so even have to get a new topcapbolt as the Tune one on now is to short to reach down into the starnut 😉 But just for borrowing. The thing that isn’t just for borrowing is my new stem for the Evo getting rid of some red. Thought a Deda Superleggero first but found this cheaper so had to buy it. Love the look of Extralite Roadstem OC:

100mm, -8° so 2° steeper than my 3T Arx Team and a lot lighter. 82g Extralite against 124g 3T 😉 Got my bike under 6kg and ready for the morning ride tomorrow it should be 5,97kg 😀

Changed the topcap to a Extralite in blue too, 2g lighter than the Tunecap and blue 🙂

If anyone needs a 3T Arx Team 100mm stem I got one for sale, just send an e-mail to jonas@cerro.dk and it can be yours.

Cannondale Flash 1 650b

What to do when you got a Cannondale Flash alu 1 and then it’s coming 2 pairs of 650b wheels from Tune? You order som tires and mount it together:

What do you think? Get it for around 17500NOK at Sykkelsenteret (including cassette and rotors). And if you think of getting a 29er, think again. Maybe it’s better with a tight 26″ frame and some 650b wheels. It’s more compact (fun), you don’t get such a high front but you still get a bit better rolling over roots compared to 26″.
