Pretty sweet. I would have chosen a different seat post, though. Pivotal is where it's at.

I don't know why people think pivotal is so great, sure it has it's advantages but it isn't as great as everybody makes it seem.

Also, Tree sprockets kick ass.

Awful rim, my mate had one on the front and it was banana'd in about a month. He had it freshly built, tight spokes and was perfectly straight when he got it.

EDIT: Not a sketchy rider either

Dang man. You're getting some good stuff.

But you should get a new chain since you are getting a whole new drive train. Your old one is probably stretched out and will wear down the new parts faster.

Also, did you get the Tree sprocket in Spline drive?, or just the regular 22mm bored one?

Hula hoops are pretty damn strong rims. They aren't quite light, but they are very strong.

i've had the hula hoop for about a year on the front and it's held up perfectly, so im moving it to the back and going for a lighter rim up front.


as to taylor,
it's actually a fiarly new chain, not that old p.o.s. thing.

This may be true, but still. It's probly stretched out just enough that it will wear down your new sprocket and driver faster. Trust me.
