Happy Happy Joy Joy!

Started with assorted stuff from a 2010 Rig, along with a few AM-oriented goodies...


..and added it all to this beauty.


Wrenched for about 90 minutes...


Steerer tube height & fork sag to do


RWC extender cup is like a mini-lift kit


Wow, that number shocked me!

In which way did that number shock you?

I bought a SS that I thought would weigh a little, ok, A LOT less than it actually does.

BB7 mechanicals, right? I love mine.

Blunt rims?

For what it is worth, I think that bike is SANO.

I expected well over 30#, especially after seeing the frame weigh in at almost 7lbs & that 5lb pig of a fork.

Glad to hear you came in under expectations! That is a GREAT place to land.

I think those white rims look pretty damn sweet.

Our trails are about to dry out, and I am JONESING pretty bad to get back out there. Tomorrow, if I am lucky!

Nice looking!

Man, I thought my TransAM frame was a pig at a full pound lighter than the Honzo frame there.

Still, built up not too badly, especially since it's a bike you can beat on.
