Okay, so I got the replacement Komodo frame in yesterday. I put the cups on it and finished the build today.


I Dremeled out the cable guides to run full length shift cable:



Blackspire Blackguard helps keep the chain on with the 1x9 setup...bling,bling Diabolus cups


Plenty of guide ring clearance on this one for some reason:


Notice how the tire sits centered on the new frame (left), but shifted to the left on the old one (right):
