When I chose to use Salsa Enabler forks on the orange Inbred I had a few reasons. If I’m perfectly honest, one reason was that they’d allow me to hitch a ride on the half fat bandwagon, if I fancied. The fact that it’s the height of summer and fat tyres are primarily used for snow riding didn’t seem a good enough reason not to have a fiddle.





The rim’s a little on the narrow side at 48mm but it’s still big enough to spread the tyre and get a good feel for the thing. I’ve not ridden it further than a lap of the yard yet but I’ll report back once I do. I believe there’s a shipment of Salsa 82mm rims due in the country soon, so if I enjoy riding it, there might just be a rim swap on the cards!

    I really enjoy your blog. I ride (or desire to) in a similar style to you and I am looking into getting an inbred. When I remembered you had one, I wanted to ask you a couple questions.

    Is that a 16" frame? If so, how tall are you?

  2. Hi Z … yeah it's a 16" frame and I'm a massive 5' 7". Inbreds tend to have a long TT which doesn't suit me on 26" wheeled frames but the 29ers TT are an inch or so shorter for a given frame size … so it fits really well.

It might be summer but those long, dark nights will be here much sooner than you imagine or hope. Even the most ardent exponent of ‘camp to ride’ will likely find themselves holed up beneath their shelter of choice for extended hours of darkness, so the requirement for some form of light is almost a […]
