Crewkerz Desire

I only bought frames + 1 fork. So the front disc bike uses a crown reducer so I can use my Trialtech Sport Lite disc fork. For the other bike I decided to buy a matching Crewkerz Desire fork mostly just take advantage of the tapered design, but I forgot how much I absolutely loath front rim brakes. So much so I've already ordered an Echo Tapered disc fork to replace it.

 

It's taken a few rides to get used to the geometry, it's a bit longer than the Breath Yes I was riding, but I'm enjoying not having to adjust my rear wheel alignment every few moves.

 

Tapered fork and Inbuilt tensioner on a reasonably priced frame with decent geo? It's a win for me.

 

P.S. Running the new Trialtech Sport Lite Splined crankset and LOVING IT! (although the bash ring is pretty weak.

 

Sorry my phone camera takes crappy pictures.

wow, pretty much exactly the same as the Jealousy but without the axles, nice rigs

Kinda. The jealousy should be stiffer and has the AS30 bottom bracket along with the axles. But the jealousy needs a lot of crewkerz only parts. I was able to do the desire as a frame kit.

  • Purchased this in 2014 with the intention of getting into trials. Broke my collarbone on my roadie and never got very far with trials. I'm back at it again, this time with my 10 year old daughter who rides a mod.
  • After being off any type of trials riding for 6 or 7 years, getting back in the saddle in order to teach my 5 years old. Surprisingly still feel comfortable on the bike. Was on Observed trials forums years ago, but does not seem to be any activity over there anymore.
