With the Standard Overload stem, how much do I need to cut the forks down for it to run flush and would a regular stem still work safely with the fork cut down so much?

Depends on the headtube length and the forks steerer tube length, you will have to cut more/less depending on the pair. I would suggest measuring your current steerer tube length with you dust cover off and see how much is there... then PM milhous and see if he can measure his for you.
If he still has it...

As long as the steerertube is at-least 3/4 of the way through the stem you're golden.

I'm getting chrome forks in the mail and I want them black... Can I just lightly sand the surface and paint over them? Will that be enough for the paint to adhere?

Thnxz


What forks? Maybe I trade you my Morning 2.1's?

Salmon is also best on a Black rim, excellent braking without the awful sqwark of clear pads.

I've heard similar to this. Theres also the plastic version. It's not the kind of thing I would put on my bike. I reckon it would suck for wheel clamping, but be a lot better for your chain. I can't imagine plastic would really rip apart your chain links (and the chain won't be moving during a grind when the guard is pushed into it), whereas if metal bends into the chain it would just fuck shit up.

The biggest problem with drive side guards is that they aren't rotatable I guess.

Glands are the best all round, except for the driver...


i got mine cheap else i wouldnt have bothered. because the guard is aluminium, the chain wore grooves into the inside of the guard. mine is flattened off on the side which is down when running it on the right, but i reckon i could cut a bit off and it would still work good on the left.
its not the ultimate solution to a drive side hubguard, but it will do the job for a few months
