IF 29er built for endurance racing. Was supposed to be built with Lefty, but I'm not going that route until I'm again confident that I will not have to rebuild it from the factory.
PF30 BB shell - SWORKS cranks w/ XX spider and 39/ 26 rings...I think. 39-something. This was frustrating to set up, as the cranks are designed around an 84mm bb shell. The PF30 shell is 68mm. Took a while to get it right.
Hadley hubs w/ Asahi bladed spokes and Crest rims.
9sp X0 gripshift with 11/34 XT cassette and mid-cage X0 derailleur. FD is an X0 10sp der. Chain is a Dura-Ace 7800.
Reba Dual-Air dropped to 80mm.
Paint is supposed to sort of represent the minute between 6:59 and 7:00 as seen on an analog clock. My shop closes at 7. Colors are Rapha inspired.
A commuter/cruiser/Long Island XC machine that we're building for our buddy Atom for NAHBS. It's getting a full Paul build kit.
I'm super stoked for it- and I'll try to update you guys on the build process as it goes along...
Here's the tubeset for a 29" aluminum race frame that should be finished up in a few weeks too.
I've pretty much accepted that 29" wheels are pretty awesome and I'm glad that we can start popping such pretty ones out so quickly.
I don't think you ever called me 'sir' before,LMBO! (but then,since I couldn't get into my old neglected account,and had to start a new one-since I've had a 'new' email for months anyways-you probly don't know me,eh? Steve,formerly Longhaultrucker just about everywhere )
LOL,well that spoils any pranks/fun to have been had How's you been old friend?
Me?,you know the old spinal injury? Well,V2-C4 will "slip" a minute amount out from where it's supposed to be from time to time,putting pressure on the 'Chord when it does,causing all kinds of "fake" problems/false signals,usually lasting only 7-10 days...this last one lasted 7+ months,so that's where I been...off the bike (and off the forums so it didn't depress me,LOL!).
