Oh! I'm so rigid right now!

Fuck it. I'm impatient.

Rather than figure out whether or not I wanted to go rigid 29 with something beautifully crafted like a Sibex, I decided to throw Redline's shitty OEM rigid fork back on the Shit Pig.

The only issue was brake caliper alignment, as cheap Thai manufacturing pretty much defines this bike. This was remedied the ghetto fabulous way, with a washer on the hollow QR axle between the hub and dropout. Yeah I know the fork is only riding on half as much axle as it should be on the left side, but like I said, "Fuck it."

This weekend: Barksdale road ride and another day climbing at Birdsboro.
