Kniner Kramp9 RDO
Last night I finished building the front wheel for my new Surly Krampus, and I couldn’t resist doing two stupid things that have surely voided multiple warranties and can’t be recommended against strongly enough:
1) I set the front tire up tubeless using an unhealthy amount of Stan’s tape, two scoops of sealant, and a filleted 24″ inner tube (but I saved almost 400 grams of rotational mass).
2) Without an appropriate bike to put this amazing wheel on, I decided instead put it on the least appropriate bike I could find: my full carbon, full suspension Niner Jet9 RDO!
When the fork is bottomed out does the tire clear the crown? Nope.
Is it safe? Hell no!
Is it fun? Hell yeah!
