    Shadow is finished

    Yay.


















    Quick build list:

    Shadow frame with Marz 55r 140mm and FSA DH Pig

    Azonic Strip Bars, BBB Freedom stem, with Sette lock ons. Easton EA30 seat post with no name SLR style saddle

    Its set up 1X9 with x.5 and a Holzfeller crank and Kona Jack****s

    This pic leads me to believe that there's plenty of room.

    Good luck with the double-nickle...I pray blessings of supernatural damping upon you.

    As per Sette's website
    Headtube Length
    120mm
    Top Tube Length (actual)
    560.5mm
    Top Tube Length (effective)
    [?]
    Seat Tube Length (C-to-T)
    419mm
    Down Tube Length
    668.5mm
    Chain Stay Length
    410mm
    Seat Stay Length
    414.8mm
    Wheelbase
    1037.1mm
    Headtube Angle
    70 Degree
    Seat Tube Angle
    71 Degree
    Standover Height
    Seatpost Size
    31.6mm


    That is all based on a 100mm fork I think. The 140 slacked every thing waaaaayy out though. As slack as that seat tube angle looks though it really doesn't feel bad at all pedaling which is something I was worried about. It actually feels pretty nice.


    A few things that are going to change are the saddle. (Marz Boss perhaps.) And the grips. The damn Sette grips are not quite getting locked on. and the clamps are cranked an the way to where the two sides are touching. The don't slip per se but they rotate about 1/4 of a turn during every ride. This is the first pair of lock ons I have used so maybe that is just par for the course, but it just seems like the problem will keep getting worse as it keeps happening. To top that off the bolts are already stripped out so the clamps will have to be pried off. Actually maybe just some ODI clamps would solve this issue, because I really do like the grip itself, just not the locking (or not I guess).

    The sette clamps do suck. I had the same issue. But even with the ODI clamps you need to be careful not to strip the bolts. Happened to me too.

    Nice bike. What pedals are they? And how do you like the tires? I saw that sale, but didn't bite.

    Sweet built!!

    Lovin' the black, just looks so cool and slick.



    Nice cranks too!

    Off topic question : How did you take the picture of the bike from the front, with the bike standing, with nothing supporting it? (well it looks like nothing is supporting it)

    And also the last picture of the first post...

    I've always wanted to know.

    Looking at ODI clamps I don't think they would even work with these grips so I guess I will just run them until they start slipping too bad. The pedals are Kona Jack****s. They are the non replaceable pin version but I got them for 16 bucks. I like them so far. I am hopping they will get better when the paint wears off the pins some because they are kinda slick when my shoes are wet.

    The tires are really great. For 9 dollars anyway. They grip well in the dirt but are really soft on the pavement and get torn up really fast. There are already small cuts in the tread blocks. But I do like them in the dirt and would probably buy another pair but the 2.35 is a super tight squeeze in the back. Ill probably run these until they crap out and then Ill pick up something else. But for 9-10 bucks each they really are great tires.

    Thanks for the complements. I use a stick and photoshop it out with the patch tool. If you look in the last picture you were talking about you can see it behind the rear wheel

    Sounds good to me. I don't know if I'll drag this bike out though I would have hard enough time keeping up as it is.

    Nice looking ride. Yeah, you've totally got room for a JumpStop there. And at $10 a pop, it's a cheap and easy way to go.
