Are the calipers the same between a 140 and 160mm rotor?

Yes, just the rotors and caliper adapters will be different, but you won't need either.

Looking forward to seeing it!

Did you get a new shifter outer cable or did you figure the existing one is long enough?

new shifter outer 3m of sp41 shimano. figured it was just easier. got a 60mm race face stem on sale from merlin also so i have the full range covered.....think the current 110mm stem and long top tube will be too much of a stretch for me but we'll see.

will have spare 160mm rotors that i cant use and possibly the riser bars, alfine 11 shifter and avid elixr 1s if anyone needs any gear cheap.

I found out today that my Inc3 gets some nasty speed wobbles at ~66kph. I'm very glad it has good brakes!

Yeah I was definitely not going woohoo.

More like, if I don't slow down this is going to hurt!

Good Morning

I am looking for a new commuting/general runabout bicycle. I have been looking at the Inc 3 and I came across this conversation. I will be riding in regional NSW on the south coast around Moruya.

There are a few things that concern me.
1. Is the bike robust enough for rougher (gravel) roads, fire trails?
2. How well will it cope when I get pushed off the pavement onto the shoulder?
3. What is the maximum tyre width that could be fitted to the bike (with and without fenders)? I asked Avanti but they refused to tell!

If anybody could offer any advice/experiencs I would be grateful.

Thanks

My commute covers dirt paths, some gravel and quite a few rough curbs/ramps. The wheels are solid with lots of spokes. No worries so far!

It comes with 40mm Conti Sports Contacts and there's plenty of room for a wider tyre or 45mm mudguards. I'm running 28mm with 35mm planetbike mudguards. Be aware there's only a single set of fender/rack mount points at the back.
