Commuting to Work

I have been doing the daily 11 mile downhill(ish) commute to our Magna premises. And YES that means uphill home.... On a Cold day like today I have testing Softshell jackets, woolly under garments, some wheels, forks, saddles and post. This is the "Hi-Vis" Pivotal Saddle with Pivotal Post. Pivotal is a BMX design however I was looking for a robust saddle that would take the knocks... Perfect for shredding the trails or street. (By shredding I mean crashing like me)

    ehup....can you tell me what front light you have, i don't know much about lights, and don't know where to look for one that hangs under the bars like that....

  • Stevo

    Yes good idea...some suppliers can offer hard anodising, it has a very high corrosion resistance... I have rubbed the XT off my XT HT2's but this can add character... MTBs are made to get dirty, so I am testing the BB really... Snow + high salt content on the road + lack of cleaning + mud + more road salt = Really good test for BB bearings :-)

    have you ever tried hard anodising it does limit colours but dependant on alloy some are possible, it is much thicker film, as i remember theres a specific alloy that goes gold without dye this could be more lightfast than dyes (my pedals etc all suffer uv fade which i hate but wearing through the anodising doesn't bother me as it looks like i use my kit.....

    HT2 but we are looking at a 50mm chainline SS crank like the 42mm chainline.... I like HT2 for the stiffness... but like the SQ taper for Fit and Forget and price...

    What flavour is the BB? Ht2 or BB30? Ceramic? Tbh i'm firmly in the sq taper camp following a brief affair with ht2, which ended very badly!

  • Stevo

    Testing the Red cranks for anodising abrasion...They might be OnOne SS cranks IF the BB's last?? Fork is a Carbon MTB fork... Not sure about it... 26er this is one of 2x Ti Whippets that never made production..

    what are those red cranks ..........?

  • chris

    Like the traffic light theme. 26 or 700c? what's the fork?
