    Got me some Snatch!

    My new ride. Special thanks to Jeremy from Mid City Bikes in Baton Rouge, LA for building this up. He's a regular poster on here. This thing is great.



    It's a bit of a porker at 30 pounds, but the ride is still so much better than my aluminum 26'er. Might put it on a diet in the future, but for the time being, I am going to Ride Like The Devil.

    Nice build. I'm diggin' the 1x9 more every day. Let us know what you think of the RST.

    Those wheels won't let you down, but it should be easy to lose some important weight with different tire choices.

    Have fun.

    I happened to have one of the last ones left for sale in the country at the shop. We've had it for a few months. I know there are none left in the country so Stu really lucked out.

    I bet RST will drop another load of M-29s on the USA in the next couple of months. They'd be crazy to miss out on the Spring/Summer buying time.

    Not just paint, it needs total replacement. It belongs to the neighboring business, though.

    I just ordered some Ergon GE1's. I have bad joints and carpal tunnel. These look like they will help alleve that.

    Nice build. You'll want to back the rebound off about 1/3 from where you've got it though, it's at full fast in the picture.

    I backed it off about half on my ride Sunday. I little too sloppy for me, so I will firm it up some next time I go out.
