Never bring a Switchblade to a cat fight
Pw helped me get the Pugs ready for winter again yesterday. Thanks a bunch Pat! Got the new Switchblade fork and CK wheel installed. As well as the old faithful XTR rear derailer off the 8000 and a new chain. It looks great, and as a bonus, found out that this new front end makes it steer a million times better. I'm not sure of the weight savings yet. The fork is a lot lighter and the hub is narrower and without a disc mount or rotor. I bet I easily saved two pounds or more over the old setup. Now I'm just waiting for a couple more parts to show up next week that should lighten the load even more. Stay tuned. In the mean time enjoy a few photos and a video of our UFC kitties.
Amazingly the tire slips right into the fork at full pressure. I thought for sure I'd have to deflate and work to make it fit.
Plenty of clearence. I think I see daylight in between there : ) Nothing rubs though.
Tight tolerences. This receipt fits right in the gap : )
