    Thanks. I like it, a lot! Sherwood built it custom for me. I also have a singlespeed he built custom. Best handling bikes I've ever ridden.

    Unfair advantage

    This is my Dekerf Implant in one of its many guises. This frame has seen forks from rigid up to 7", 24" and 26" wheels, freeride burly parts and XC light parts and mixtures of all the above. It is always fun to ride and never holds me back from trying anything.

    Well, it was a good try.

    Too much free time and a bunch of extra parts laying around means new hardtail for me!!! So I decided to take a chance with a Sette Shadow frame and see what I could build up. I already had the Reba fork, drivetrain and wheelset, so all I really had to buy was the frame, brakes and seat/seatpost.

    Build Summary: Sette Shadow frame, Reba 115mm fork, CC S-3 headset, BB7's 185f/160r, Alex ID19 rims, 1x9 w/LX mid-cage low normal derailleur, wellgo B-25 pedals and WTB Speed-V seat.

    Ride Summary: my last three bikes have all been full suspension so its been a while since I have ridden a hardtail offroad. I was very pleasantly surprised, it rode solid and much more comfortable than I was expecting (with help from the Reba & SpeedV seat). I am still getting use to the tighter geometry and will play around with stem lengths but this will definitely be a fun play bike. Also, I normally only ride clipless so this was my first time on modern day flats and I really liked them, may have to experiment using them on my Heckler. Enough rambling, here are some pics.

    Its an 05' Reba Race that came stock with 115mm travel. It also has spacers to reduce to 100 or 85mm. I actually used it on my Heckler for awhile and it rode quite nice for mild singletrack. Not sure if the current Reba's can be adjusted to 115mm.

    yeah thats the cleanest its looked in while. tires, seat/post and fork are pretty new though
    came in on my home scale around 26.5 lbs (w/ritchey v4 pedals)

    the fork is a noleen crosslink ELT I got off ebay, new old stock. very different feel than the judy it replaced but I'm diggin it so far, much lighter too. wish it had more travel, but not bad for xc riding

    ^^^^^^^^^^

    aren't bashguards also meant to protect yourself from getting squashed by the teeth of your chainring?
    your bashguards look almost more dangerous then the chainring....


    but i have to say, they look SHARP...

    Mostly to protect the chainring's teeth from snapping off when you go over logs and whatnot...

    On those Yellow Turbines - I'd install the crank bolts for the granny ring - they are important to the structural integrity of those cranksets. Trust me.

    running a bash generally gives a bit better clearance too. But you shouldn't take logs on the chainring/bash anyway.

    Ya you should, thats why back in the day guards had teeth...so you could bite into the log and roll over without wrecking your big ring.
