    Ughhh what a shit show. The Clark nuts didn't like the 3 way Park Tool hex I guess because of the ball end. Not a big deal but it was downhill from there. One of the nuts ended up stripping after it was on even after using a non ball L hex. I had to use the die grinder with a cutoff wheel and cut a flat blade slot to get it off. I used one of the old nuts problem solved. Ferrule popped off the cable and the end was all frayed so I put a new cable and ferrule on. It was a good lesson to show my son why you keep spare parts around. Finally got to use the third hand. Brakes work great but still FUCKING squeaking. I had him clean the rim with alcohol again. I'm hoping after they wear in maybe it will stop. What a friggin letdown. This is just the front BTW. Rear no squeaks.

    Cool new trailing fork. Thought about you because of the bike



    I had a trailing fork on a Honda bike.

    And I’m thinking about getting one for my fat cruiser.

    That beer cozy will likely get ordered at the same time.

    I’ve read about that fork a little bit, pretty wild. I haven’t seen one in person yet, but I’d love to see how it feels on the trail. $2700 though....fuck!

    That cruiser is sick man! A beer cozy is essential :D

    Damn, that looks like so much fun! It’d be really fun to design/build a place like that. Would be even better for you northern guys that have a lot more winter weather than I do down here.

    2700 is fucking crazy but I too would love to try one.

    My cruiser is actually black and white.

    The tires soak up the bumps so I’m on the fence about the fork. It’s only 80 bucks though so I’ll likely pick it up out of curiosity. And you’re right, it would look better with a cozy.
