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.

I’m something of a scant planner and it’s perhaps fair to say that I’m usually guided by whim, fancy and misfortune rather than global positioning systems.
