    We all start life out naked. New Ahrens frame!

    I just received my new Ahrens frame with sliders. It can run gears but I'm going to set it up single.

    Some build clues in a little story...

    I woke up with a bad case of the DTs. I never should have taken thoes 240 syntace and followed em with the esi chaser. That's the last time I hang out with Stan and that stylo dude Ralph. He thinks he's some kind of racing hero. Next time I will set my vector 20mm to the left and flow over to Rebas place avoiding that mess altogether. So... you may be asking WTB? As in "where's the bike?" Well don't be a wisecracker and you will soon see...

    Dirty photos coming soon...

    Nice - I like your clever write up.

    Went with aluminum? The frame is a little reminiscent of a Yeti blue Rock Lobster on here a while ago.

    Look forward to seeing the complete package!

    Interesting. The front end numbers suggest that you are not a fan of current 29"er forks and head angles.

    Should be an unique handling rig.

    mmm--hmm...that's what I'm talkin' about. looks sorta familiar...

    Aluminum is real, baby...at least in that type of build with the Ahrens components. Looks like Mike finally broke away from fiddling with that sus-frame crap long enough to build you a nice hardtail 29er. Looking forward to seeing the bike when it's put together.

    I like to ride Bikes. This might be turning into an obsession, not sure?

    The frame is 4.6lb.

    The finished bike came in at 24 with some burly parts.

    I new someone like you would pickup on this. Yeah... I'm not much of a conformist. The geometry is similar to the GF Rig. I'm 6'3" and I want a bike I can stretch out on.

    Ride report soon...
