I finished a pair of Compass extralight and now with Veloflex Master 28c, the price of the Compass is too high but at the end of the Veloflex I think I will go back to the Stampede Pass.
How wide do you need? Grand Bois Cypres EL (i.e. as a set from Libertecycles.nl) could be an option. BTW those are GB Col del la Madeleine 23mm EL on my bike above.

Yes, it's a 3T Bailout 9-32 on a 38t chainring, a combo I pedaled to 70kph yesterday (yes, downhill ;)

I often run fat tired wheels in the bike, but then with a 10-42 cassette, for paved + unpaved roads.

That's a useful information, thank you very much ! I thought this brand stopped to sell because I didn't find any place to buy them.

It's a first time I saw a ti fork like this, what is the brand ? Nice bike, like usual :) I was with 1x one year ago and I can't understand how you continue to use it with all this gap but anyway, if it meets your needs :)

I am concerned with cracking and deformation especially at the bottom cup, also if you notice, Lynskey Ti frames have the highest percentage of aluminum in the frames, headset cups, flat mount hardware on the stays, insert sleeve on the seat tube and the thru axle hardware are all aluminum.

How do you know Lynskey has the most aluminum? What about litespeed? Particularly the T1SL, does that mean it uses more aluminum to get it that light?

Look at the T1SL and you examine at all those parts I mentioned and you will see no aluminum.

Litespeed uses an aluminum insert in the seat tube as a reducer to get the ID of the seat tube to 31.6mm. It's only a handful of cm long. Lynskey also uses it on the head tube for some strange and ugly reason.

This is my No.22 Great Divide Disc. It was built up to just over 18lb with a Romin Evo.

How did you remove the AL inserts, I thought they were epoxy bonded? Any benefit for removing the inserts?

I removed it using bearing puller. The Al insertion weight around 50 grams. with 31.6mm seatpost or 30.9 I can get a lighter seatpost (difference made around 100 to 130 grams reduced) and stiffer than 27.2 with insertion that i guest some time later make some tick noise if you are not periodically light grease the seatpost tube.Image
