I'm a Computer (Web) Programmer/Analyst based in Anchorage, AK and Minneapolis, MN. I use (among other things) ASP.NET, C# and SQL Server.

I build things. Bicycles, computers, websites, guitars, cars, motorcycles, sound sytems... lots of things.

comment Building an Entry Level MTB. How should I choose suspension forks?
If I had the choice between entry level suspension or rigid, I'd take rigid. You can get pretty nice and light rigid forks for less than 'cheap' suspension forks - are you set on suspension forks?

comment Using Anti Seize in place of Grease
Care to provide any speculation on the implications of using Anti-Seize in bearings or for high-movement components? I'm tempted to try it on something just to see what happens.

comment Can I use a shock pump to inflate a tube?
I have Kenda hybrid tires on my mountain bike, which are 2.1" wide and take 65 psi. If, however, you're referring to most MTB tires that are between 35 and 40 PSI max, just half it: 2,950 pumps for a 26" tire and 3,200 for a 29" (38.6 PSI)

comment What is the frame called that fits 700c wheels?
I also wouldn't try to fit 700c/622mm 'road' rims/wheels into a 29er MTB, nor the other way around (likely impossible to fit in the frame or fork), hence the naming difference despite sharing the 622mm ISO BSD.

comment What is the frame called that fits 700c wheels?
While the "29er" uses the same diameter wheels as 700c, doesn't the c refer to the width? I thought "29er" rims were wider and accepted much wider tires.

comment What is the frame called that fits 700c wheels?
Agreed, but if the size is omitted, or not specified otherwise, it's likely 26". I rarely see the 26 spelled out explicitly, or included in the name.
