Not many options with a 26.8 seatpost size. ;) The thomson was the only one available in QBP when I built it up.

Correct.

Build it with the parts lying around. Good response and handling.

UPDATE: Unfortunately theres not much riding going on here... sooooo I cleaned up my bike and put a new bottle cage and some new tires on it. :)

Then I took it for a night ride where I flatted the new front tire (hopefully that won't happen anymore). Can't wait for spring.

I assume the RH is a 26"? I'm definitely interested to hear how this expiriment goes.

He was riding it around town, and at stoplights he'd just hit the brakes and sit on the bike. Stepping down is not necessary since the tires are so wide...pretty hilarious to see.

My mistake. But that would be an interesting expiriment to convert a 26er to a 69er.
