A while back, I made some head tube extensions for twenty-six inch bikes as travel was getting longer and super-d still existed. Race bike setups were getting very strange. That was 2010.

Today, I’m making them again. This time, for the new Whyte S-150 that we’re setting up for Windy. The bike rides very low in the 27+ configuration, so we’re raising it up with fork stroked up to 160mm (from 150mm) and an extended headset cup. The last round in 2010 was for EC49 tubes. This time it’s for an EC56 headtube and I was able to improve the detail a bit while decreasing the weight.
