    what about the brakes do they reach the rim? I have a VooDoo DJab 26er Ti and It looks like one would fit also. But I keep thinking that brakes wouldn't adjust that far down. Got to try it........
    I need to ride more and work less.

    with the XTR v-brakes it didnt look like it would work, but these rims tested on has not a real braking surface, so if that would have been a bit wider and maybe som small amount of modifying of the brakes I dont think its impossible

    I have to admit, I stole that line from Grant Petersen of Rivendell fame.

    Hey mate. Would you happen to have photos of the chainstay area, to show tire clearance? I'm considering this frame, and will put a 2.1 Neo on there.
    Better to have and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

    I love it! I've converted a Rush and had a Flash 29er. Didn't like it because it felt too big for me (I'm 5'6) and I kept getting pedal strikes. A conversion seems like a match made in heaven for me. Too bad Cannondale no longer offers a Flash 26 in the states..

    If you have Stans 355 rims you can use Paul mx v-brakes that will adjust up to have pads hit the rim surface. Velocity may have some earlier style hoops that are rim brake compatible.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    I got a ride in on Friday. Bike is absolutely insane. I could not be happier. It weighs 26.5lbs as it sits in those pics. With lighter tires and a carbon seatpost rather than the dropper it could be sub 25lbs. I think in that setup it would be an amazing xc bike.

    My new-to-me 650B FM-136 with SRAM X0 2x10 grip shift setup, light-bicycles.com 25mm 650B tubeless wheels w/Novatec DS811/812 hubs, Schwalbe Rocket Ron tires, Rockshox Revelation XX 650B fork. I plan on using it for XC racing and general bombing around.
