    ben:Haha you bought it. I was gonna turn it into a winter beater but was told the fork will only take 23s


    Yeah, for the price, the parts were hard to pass up. I'm debating on selling the frameset but who knows. It's by far the lightest bike that I own now.

    Probably right around 5ish before I bought it. It's really a blast to ride.

    Cool bike! What's with the mountain bike derailleur, or is that road?

    x7= sram mtb

    Sram's cable pull ratio is the same between road and mtb, the main reason to use mtb is to be able to use larger cassettes but obviously not the case here.

    I have a big SRAM 9sp cassette with less than 50mi you can buy if your build is 9sp."Dude's just smashing fructosenormativity, lay off."

    Not that you can't run a big cassette with a road derailleur, like my Ultegra 6700 with an 11-32 cassette (it's spec'd for max 28). My mind was recently blown when I learned that the design of the frame/derailleur hanger will sometimes let you run a larger cassette, because it all has to do with the position of the top pulley wheel, and if it will fit around the largest cassette cog. The longer pulley cage of a mtn bike derailleur is only to pick up the chain slack when it's on the small front ring of a triple.

    edit: tightening the b screw down supposedly also helps with this.

    That's one thing I've been considering in putting my wolverine together, the stock fork is a brick, and something like the woundup would be a great alternative.

    Hows the tire clearance?

    33 are in there (and they seem more like 35 to he honest).
    i'd guess 38's would be ok but I haven't had a test.
