Pressed in the Vaya’s headset cups and unboxed the Bombtrack.



#17782

One’s mine (Vaya), one’s a loaner (Bombtrack).

Hella.

I drilled/filed a hole where there used to be no hole in my HT for the stealth dropper that’s arriving tomorrow. Kinda neat thing about having a pretty stout steel frame. Also lengthened the shifter housing.

For my Jones (yeah I realize this is ridiculous):

Gold stem and seatpost from Paul (yeah I realize I’m probably going to be sorry)
Pink hubs
Ano blue bottle cages

Don’t worry, my blue Klampers will distract folks from your stem/seatpost.

Sup has been wanting to get into riding a mtb so pulled this out of the basement. Got the Stans Bravo wheels for $150 from the Stans guys at the swap. New tires, Sunrace 10sp 11-42 cassette and wolf tooth thingy to make the Zee dangler work with it. Also cut 2cm off the seat tube so she can use the 150 dropper that’s on there. Did a pretty bad job but yolo. Stoked to ride it when she’s not haha.

Whoa, killer deal on the bravos!
Also, looks fun.

That is almost surly level of fork zits


#17792

#17793

That looks great! Kudos for getting exactly what you want and marking those places on the frame and fork.


#17794

I can’t wait to see how the Tubus looks when it’s all finished, because with my unicrown fork, the damn thing is practically unusable.


#17795

More photos are on his Flickr. Looks pretty good here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/andy_squirrel/28410373968/in/dateposted/
