Sort of an experiment - I had the frame kicking around for a while and thought about building something like a 29er but for lighter trail use and also wanted to try running tubeless. It's a nice light frame and nothing on it was modified. I'm running it fixed and it is a challenge riding cross country. Can't keep up with the boys on the regular bikes, but then, I'm playing a different game.

People who friended this bike the fumingator, SNEK, per.k

well done man how does it

well done man how does it ride?

So far good. Handles well on

So far good. Handles well on the trails I'm riding. No bad surprises; actually better than I anticipated. I have very little fixed gear experience, so riding this cross country is taking some getting used to but it's fun.
