"minivelo" from my mini workshop. This bicycle uses 20-inch wheels
(406 mm) - Velocity Aeroheat rims are laced 2-cross to Phil Wood
KISS-OFF disc hubs. Stopping power is provided by Hope Mono Mini
hydraulic brakes, though I was originally running Avid Ball Bearing
7 mechanical units.
bike has a custom Action-Tec suspension fork ( http://www.actiontec.us/
) and it's truly the bees knees. I've combined the fork with a Thudbuster
seatpost for a super smooth and comfortable ride. Both fork and
seatpost are set up on the stiff side, so bouncing is kept to a
minimum when climbing.
frame is TIG-welded steel. Ready-to-ride weight, with 40 mm Avocet
Freestyle tires, is 22.5 pounds. Not bad for a bike with a suspension
fork and seatpost, disc hubs and brakes, and a steel-railed Brooks
