Patched DT Swiss carbon shock...looking good and functionalImage

Dude tell me more about this! That's bloody awesome



Canister was damaged on a crash, enough to develop a small crack leading to air loss. I had a carbon front derailleur clamp without any use, like those Parlee ones....did some trimming and shaping to cover just over the crack, sanded with a low grade sand paper on both surfaces before bonding it with Loctite EP120, Polishing work and voila!!....back to a functional canister.

I did this because I was having a hard time finding a replacement....eventually a found it and this one on the picture is a back up canister in case I need it.

Since this thread has been dormant for a while, and it and Berk's thread are primarily the reasons I lurked and eventually set up an account:

I'll add my bike. Not really "tuning" more of a fabrication.

Very impressive work. How much did it weigh, is this your first frame build. You should really start its own thread with a build report.

Thank you. It was my first build. Frame weighed 1464g including the 113g Paragon dropouts. It has a steel headtube and bottom bracket, and I over built it for safety. Total build as pictured was 7,890g / 17.39 lb
I may do a build thread for the next frames.

Good to see this thread back up again!
Anyways, here is my latest creation:
Image
It was my first attempt with carbon fiber so it looks a bit rough, and it is absolutely overbuilt.
It is based off a fizik arione and weighs 180 grams

I spy some knobblies in the background of that picture, hows the rigid post / saddle combo perform on a MTB? considering a Berk for my Epic HT...

The seatpost-saddle combo works well offroad, but you definitely feel some more trail buzz (you can lower the tire pressure to get some more comfort though). I think it is important to get the right shape otherwise it will be a nightmare. The arione is not that mtb friendly due to the long shape but it is the only saddle that i can survive riding on.

Version #2 is in the works. Geo will be nearly the same but the frame will be full carbon no steel HT and BB or aluminum dropouts. Currently finalizing details before starting the build.

Then just add eTap and you'll have one clean custom created ride :thumbup:

That certainly would simplify it. Unfortunately, I've been throwing my whole budget at composites and tooling...

Don't forget cable mounts, a bit cleaner than electrical tape
