I realized I’ve never posted a pic of my new bike. Built her up three weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon. Rigid fork as it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than buying a new suspension fork, dics brakes some and disc ready wheels.
Go figure. This is the shit I already had in my garage: Some XTR, some XT, some Avid, some whatever. The crankarms and saddle have been with me for ever on countless bikes. When you’ve had it around for years and years, you know it’s the good stuff.
Rigid is fine for now. I haven’t been on anything all that technical or terribly challenging with eminent death, dismemberment and danger – danger – danger. I’m more of a smooth single track type of guy these days.
Yo, I make a 29 look like a 26.
You may notice the road pump on the top tube (it just plain works) and continuous rear brake housing held down with electrical tape. A touch of class.by
