    Still Have to Decide on stack height:

    Slack angles I'm not used to:

    Travel adjust does help for climbing, but there is no useable travel after lockout

    Well...your fork is on backward, your seatpost is bent, and you forgot to install the clip mechanism on the pedals.

    Your bike building skills suck!



    Are those Supersonics?

    Yeah, 26.5 according to my scale after I put the stans sealant in ( I put in twice as much as they recommend) So it's half a pound lighter than the Epic, but way more verstitile.

    No, There's that half pound we were looking for. Ha, Honestly A guy that runs standard tires tubeless, wants as much sidewall as a decent weight will allow. I should revise my spec sheet to say 580 gr rear 670 fr.

    Well it's way more plush, but not quite as efficient. The slacker angle and enormous stack made it hard to climb today, but cornering was better than I anticipated.I lowered the stem tonight and will try climbing again tommorrow. I see the build was just the first step, dialing it in to a all rounder is gonna be the tough part.

    Just for kicks...I have an Easton 90mm and a Thomson 70mm stem you can borrow for a ride to see if you like it shorter. I hated it when I was used to the 110mm Easton I had...but now that I've been running shorter stems...I'm really diggin' 'em. I've got a 50mm on the Komodo.

    OK, I think it's a 90 on there right now . I have a 120 Duess, but wouldn't mind trying the 70 mm 2B4 I cut it.
