- Bluto`ing the Fatty
So far for my yet to be received Puffin I’ve nearly bought some On-one Carbon forks (didn;t like the graphics) and some of those (didn’t have a hub).
I’m hoping it turns up mid-month before it becomes the first bike I’ve bought upgrades for before I actually receive it 🙂Posted 5 years ago
I built a couple of wheels with Hope Fatsno hubs and your rims and spokes
and have had to make 2 x 7.5 mm endcaps ( I believe Hope are doing a 150 hub soon )
also made a spacer for the disk +7 mm
Headset I used the original Smoothie and just needed to machine out the crown race as it had a 1.5 bearing in
Clearance is goodPosted 5 years agohot_fiatSubscriber
Looks good. The fatty fork is pretty long so the bluto won’t upset the handling all that much.
I was out on mine this morning and I’ve decided that its possibly the funniest and most capable hardtail I’ve ever ridden. The speed I can get up to on the local singletrack is quite amazing. I’ve also decided that 80 or 100mm of travel is simply not enough. I reckon something like this needs 160 or 180mm of the plushest, under-damped, American monster-truck style squidge. Like a kona Entourage that’s been given botox.Posted 5 years ago

Grabbed a quick ride between showers up on ilkley moors stone pitched trails just to get a feel for the forks and rode the same place last week and remember how knackered my wrists were .
