I'm getting back into mountain biking after a near-decade hiatus and am psyched about the new bike I just built.
I got an XC bike a couple of months ago and since realized that I want to hurl myself down mountains on a more suitable machine. A separated shoulder helped drive that point home. I'm about 85% back to normal now.
I got this triangle from a new friend for a handshake and then was lucky enough to source a local swingarm for a reasonable price. I used a lot of parts from the other bike to save greenbacks. I decided to prioritize a wheelset over a fork upgrade and hope the psylo will last a little while. It would be nice if it were a 20mm version though. I'm outta moola at the moment so big fancy forks will have to wait.
I'd love to hear what you think of my new bicycle.
