So far, it's been a fun ride. The goal was absolute reliability in any weather, as it tends to rain a lot here in Portland and I don't have time to be adjusting things these days. The Sutra frameset, with it's faults, ended up being about the best non-custom fit I could find. If I had my choice I probably would have used a Rocky Mountain Sherpa, but that would mean parting out the rest of the bike, paying $1000 or so more up front, and not having adjustable dropouts which help so much with the speedhub. The Cotic Roadrat was another interesting idea, but I'm not sure how well it would handle loaded touring. Routing the fender stays was interesting -- I had to bend them by hand around the disc brakes and even so they just barely work. Cable routing was a challenge as well, as you can see in some of the other pictures. But for the most part, things came together pretty well. As for riding impressions, well, it's solid, fairly heavy (I'm guessing ~30 lbs), and very very stable. The brakes are just incredible in the wet: strong, silent, and fade-free. The dynohub/light combo is fantastic as well, with the auto-light-sensor doing its thing behind the scenes with no thought from me and putting out plenty of light. Many of the parts (seat, cranks, skewers, rack, etc) I've had for a while now so they just feel normal. The speedhub is taking some getting used to. I love the range, and the simplicity, but I don't love the 7-8 shift, and I really dislike the grinding in the lower range. I'm told this will get better, and I hope it will, but at the end up the day there's really no competition. Let me know if you have any questions. For now, this will be my "daily rider" to and from work, and maybe some day (when Lucas is a bit older) I'll get to test out its loaded touring capabilities. Finally, thanks goes out to Dean at Clever Cycles for sourcing many of the parts, including the big red thing on the rear.

Different Fork, different bike!
Different Fork, different bike!
I finally ditched the stock RST Gila forks that were on my Hardrock Sport. And now I have nice black forks on my bike. V good. This next bit is for the benefit of inexperienced bike-ists like me with Spesh Hardrocks. As described elsewhere, the RSTs were proving to be springy and little else, recently the adjusters stopped adjusting and the ends of the fork seemed to be flexing, making the wheel move as if it's cones weren't adjusted. So the good news is the Rockshox Tora 302 forks are a massive improvement! They have variable travel, which actually changes the length of the fork and thus the ride height of the front of the bike, so I have set them for now at roughly the same length as the old ones. Rebound adjust is done from a little selecter on the bottom of the right hand strut (visible in photo) I'm 15 stone and the bike is a 21" frame, I set it to a third away from fastest rebound, and it seems dead right. Preload is set by the Pop-loc switch on the left hand handle bars, this is the basic one that just lets you flick between no preload and locked out (I think you can reset the cable so you can switch between 'some' preload, and locked out). For a person like me who rides to the bumpy stuff on the road this is a boon. The improvement over the RSTs is total, a new riding experience off road. It soaks up little bumps, and big ones just the same and you feel nothing through the bars, just a little puffing noise from the damper, which I like a lot, it's chirpy. No more scary bouncing like a stabbed gazelle after bigger hits, it just goes "Chuff" and smoothes it out. The bike steers better, this was a surprise to me, and the back end has become lighter, and dances around following the front nimbly, this was also unexpected. It doesn't follow ruts like it used to, you have more freedom to choose a line. Finally the Rockshox are a lot lighter than the RSTs. Quite a pricey upgrade for a bike of this value, but if you're getting fed up with your RST pogo-sticks, these are a whole world better. I took the RSts to pieces for a post mortem, they are a pants design, two big springs, two tie rods, and some rubber sausages, with no sign of anything that would control rebound. Can I have my cheque now Rockshox?
