Ben, maybe I missed it, but whats the story/reasoning behind the new tripple tree? I'd like to hear your opinions on the clutch upgrade too!


I dig your builds!

Ben is going to WP 48mm forks (if they ever clear customs....), they have thicker tubes so he needed new triples.

what he said

as for the on off feel of the brake lever. I would actually prefer that.

Riding trials bikes for years EVERYONE hated riding my bike because I like the brake to be like a light switch. ON or OFF. just preference I guess. same as all my mountain bikes..... even had the levers swapped... people hated riding my stuff


Lukas... Im loving that AVS lever... might have to give one a try!!

Clutch wise... well... I really have no opinion yet! haven't tried it! as soon as all the parts come in I will do a good weekend ride and give it a try for feedback.

Funny story - I was the ONLY US customer to ever order the magura clutch set from twalcom USA...?
just hope it has a long enough stroke!

So I want to lose weight on my bike. How much did you lose, and what is the biggest bang for the buck other than the usual suspects of battery and exhaust?

I like your job on the rear fender too! I'm a little jealous of your new forks!

This is the worst case of Identity Crisis I think I have ever seen in a bike!!!

And I'm extremely jealous, I wish my bike had an Identity Crisis!!!

Ben, the bike is looking good! It reminds me of a KTM 950 SE with a large fuel tank.

When you have a few spare moments, I would be interested to hear more details about the triple clamp and WP fork upgrade process.

Twins! Now the questions is which one is Arnie and which one is Danny DeVito?

You have 5x the range for a starter.
