    Maybe switch to cartridge bearings?

    Obviously repacking those doesn't make much sense, but seals will likely make that irrelevant. I haven't yet owned a bike/headset long enough to have to...

    I love your race reports, though reading this has made me reconsider wanting to do DK200. :-)

    Yeah, that sounds perfectly reasonable to me. And they (GCN) certainly have no excuse for not knowing the rules.

    Yeah, that's a good point. If the shim moves with the hitch, then this particular issue won't be much of a concern. (Though I think probably still not a great idea to try to ride any trails w/...

    Well, it's not that the shim comes off. It's that the hitch sleeve (i.e. that attaches to the Wehoo and slides down over the shim) could slide up and off the plastic shim. That is what's happened...

    I don't think I've ridden that specific trail, but from the comments it sounds like it is more technical than it sounds. E.g. "First few miles of The Blackwater Canton were very much like a Standard...

    Yeah, as DrP points out, there are pull-up bars on 4MRT in Shirlington. There's also one at Mace Park at 4MRT and Patrick Henry Dr.

    But tell your friend to stop that nonsense; pull ups won't make...

    I'd actually make the counterpoint that this chain has too many miles on it to be worth changing. You'll likely need a new cassette if you put a new chain on now. (Or maybe it won't make much...

    Yeah, correct. I was still talking in general (or about MTB) there.

    I don't have any experience with the adapters, but makes sense that it wouldn't work as well.

    ?? Do you mean MTB V-brakes ?? Then, yes, it is expected they would look like that, since they are [mini-]V-brakes. TRP is a high-end brand, though, so you're not looking too closely (ti bolts!) if...

    Huge thanks to Vicegrip who was key to the disc-brake conversion (grinding, drilling/tapping threads for bolting on the a2z, etc.)

    Excited to watch this build!

    Also, making me wonder if I should pick up / apply some framesaver for my [second-hand] Hayduke. Probably not a bad idea.
