Looks like a work of art in progress. I like the slope of the top tub and bottle cages. Crank looks great on there also.

A few pieces where castoffs. The cranks that came off my GT since I "just had to have XTR on the GT".

Rear Tire: Panaracer Rampage 29er X 2.35

This should be in the mountain bike forum. I don't think Juanmoretime needs to introduce himself anymore.


Nice twentyniner.

Why did you decide to make this one a single speed ? Not that anything is wrong with that.

In the Midwest you seldom get out of the middle ring. Most climbs are very short and steep. I do have the other dropout should I decide I need gears but it adds to the challenge. One gear and no excuses.
