^^ Titec Scoper - - seatpost-within-a-seatpost for abbreviated- (or, in the case of Matt's Canfield, bent-) seat tube bikes.

Very slick, Matt; oh, and nice choice of wheels .

Yes, bent seat tube bikes

The wheels have been good so far, no complaints..... yet. I'm sure they'll hold up to living at Northstar and riding it daily for the next 3 months, then moving to Bellingham for 4 years!!!

Hey guys, thought I'd throw my new ride up on here. 2008 Kona Explosif. After waiting for almost a month for some of the parts to arrive, I finally put it together. I'm running it as a rigid 32x15 single speed right now, but the sliding dropout on the right side has a derailleur hanger for if I want to ever run it with gears. If you're looking at the photo and saying "what derailleur hanger?" the reason is because Kona sent the wrong piece with the frame. The correct one should be arriving soon, assuming that the shop actually ordered it. This whole project has been quite an exercise in patience. Anyway, I hope you like it. I really dig this bike.

Front Derailleur: Shimano Deore XT
Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore XT, 9 speed
Shift Levers: Shimano Deore XT, 9 speed
Cassette: Shimano Deore XT, 11-32t (M770)

Rear Wheel: Mavic Crossmax ST (Ceramic), Salsa Ti Skewer, Panaracer Fire XC Pro (2.1), Hutchinson latex tube (green)

Seat Post: Kent Eriksen Sweetpost, layback









I stopped by the Kent Eriksen shop on the way back from Moab. Great shop, and I got to see where my frame came from:



It all ends up like this:

Donated the Profile crank to my son and his growing BMX addiction. I was really amazed at how light the new XTR crank is.
