Glad I resisted the temptation.

I bought an open-box on eBay from a reputable vendor

Wow, yea. Can that dangler handle small small without dropping the chain? Isn't the whole point of nerd cranks being able to get a wide range without running a huge cassette?

or a loaded touring range without running a triple.

small/small is often out of reach on nerdcranks anyway due to the chain rubbing on outer chainring

Long cage dangler is required for 46/30 with 11-40. Works awesome.

Mid cage doesn't have the chain wrap capacity and big/big will rip shit off.

That reminds me, I need to get a long dong dangler.
My chain gets mighty baggy in small small.

This. Bikes should be able to shift into every gear combination without chains falling off or danglers getting ripped off. Doesn't mean you should ever pedal a single stroke cross chained to the max, but it's a problem if you mis shift and your shit breaks. Also comes in handy if you develop an issue shifting up front and need to cross chain to get home.

Also, rad looking bike crabbi! How do you like those bottles? Are they as easy to get in and out of those peg things as a regular bottle?

I can't tell from the picture. What bottles/cages does he have?

They are the fabric bottles.

Mattie sent me them last year. They are pretty great for warming up for cross. I ejected a bottle on this ride going down some washboard road, but I didn't tighten down the grommets as much as I probably should have (I just put that set on that morning). For the most part, they're pretty easy to get back in, but you will notice that it is slower. Sometimes you miss one of the grommets, but it will still hold.

The only person I know who uses those stupid Fabric cages is the same guy who has SRAM Eagle and Crank Brothers wheels on his Specialized hybrid. For me, that says it all.

I have a feeling that, in five years, we will be remembering the Fabric bottles the same way.

the fabric bottles seem great for exactly what nathan is using them for, which is warming up for cx. is anyone claiming they're a great design for anything other than that? because if so...that is dumb

the only reason I didn't change these out for normal cages for this ride was because I'm lazy. But yeah, perfect for cross/pocketless skinsuit collabo.

here;s my bike some of you will be seeing for the first time. with these improvements (new seatpost, wheels, 28mm tires) it diminishes the sting of riding over bumps or rough patches of pavement. the most significant addition though I would say has nothing to do with comfort, it's (also sorry to sound like a bore!) a power meter. it has transformed my training, to know what I'm doing right now, what I've done for the day, and what I need to do to become fitter has forever changed the way I view the sport. damn, no more contador like accelerations up meowtains for me

No removing of cages for races. Bottles for training rides.

Hydrate as you warmup, get to line and drop it at the start. Then so you don't have to deal with the cage when going to shoulder the bike. Especially helpful for tiny frames.

That's a neat bike, usually I don't like mismatched tires, but the red and black works with the rest of the bike. I'm curious if you find that saddle angle comfortable, the tail looks pretty high - I'm in the middle of an experiment with a nosed-up Fabric saddle on one of my road bikes, and I'm liking how planted it makes my pelvis feel.

I think a power meter will eventually find its way onto one of my bikes. knowing exactly what's happening as I'm pedaling along would be very interesting, as would knowing more precisely what I'd done for the day. How long have you been using a pm? Have you begun to internalize the information it gives you?
