    ride report

    Nice!!! Please share the ride reports as soon as you get her out and muddy. I would love to know how how the fox fork matches up with the SIR Geo.

    it is a size medium, rode a little today. but i have a bruised rib from a 26" wheel exp.

    Feels great actually. better then expected. what a different feeling really. did a little loop here at UCSD. had to walk some hills. my ribs are killing me. but went from the 105mm stem i had to a 90mm, feels instantly better in the parking lot.

    I'm 6foot with shoes on. or just a hair under. also pushed the seat rails all the way back. i did pick up a 410mm setback thomson aswell, just in case.

    fox fork feels freaking awsome. much better then any of the Reba's i've ridden on 29ers.
    i'm thinking i want to get rid of all the spacers on the steerer tube. all the way down feels so much better. maybe even flipping the stem. but head angle/steerer feels great. wouldn't want to change that at all. just bar height.

    Micro drive? What's the deal with this? 25 up front seems really low....lots of climbing?

    Also, what chain is that?

    Beautiful bike!

    Yeah but he is rolling a 14 rear... I think a 30frt/20rr is the way to go.

    wow sorry mr. racer guy for being different. my last single speed was a Evil DOC. great trail bike. even better stairgap/jumping bike. the cranks came from that, i'm a profile fan.

    sorry its not as light as your setup. micro drive works perfectly. has been for more years 29ers have been out.

    chain torque

    you just wear the chain out faster cause its moving slower than w/ a 36/20. It is under proportionately greater torque w/ the smaller chainring and cog. Engineers no likey.
