    Wow, very nice. It's just like my ti. SS (rigid, v-brakes, ENO cranks and fw), only completely different (everything else).

    That is extremely well thought out. Nice headset topcap. Custom for you? You always ride flat pedals?

    Brooks...

    Nice!

    I love the Brooks saddle, and bar tape.

    I have considered a similar setup, but Brooks does not make racing green tape (to match my saddle).

    Nice build, I am sure it will return the love.

    Outstanding

    Love that bike.

    Been kicking around a SS 29er myself. Those dropouts really seem to make a lot of sense.

    Parts

    Thanks guys. It has been a while in the making. Crank bolts are Middluburn (ordered for chainreatction in the U.K.). Pedals are Wellgo Mag. To cap is from Purley Custom (they just happened to have a phoinix so no custom was neccessary). The bar wrap was difficult since I have much experience doing so and the Jones bars are a little tricky as well. Drop outs are nice and make sense to me as well. On the local bike path it rides nice. I have yet to test it off road. When I do I will give it a good critique. BTW the bike is a "she". My wife insists it is male. I told her I would never throw my leg over a guy and rid him.

    Dirt/mud very soon.

    I am only using flats around town so I don't have to do the scratch walk when off the bike. When off road its clipless for me. I might try the flats on some tammer off road trails though as an experiment.

    Yup!

    Need the V-brakes for a flip flop hub. I live in a dry environment so disc are not as necessary. When fixed less need for the brakes (although I still want them).

    Imagine if they made a freewheel with a lockout.

    Beautiful bike, classy and simple. Looks like it could rip the singletrack. Have you weighed it?

    No weight yet. When i ride by the LBS next time I will put her on a scale. I am not to worried about it. I don't think it is ultralight nor a pig. Just right.
