All components are updated and these are known for being tough frames...........I tried selling it to no avail so at least it's being ridden now........we'll see........

    Looks like PBR hipster vomit on a mountain bike and the overdose of white makes the noncoordinated bits like brake levers, shifters, brake calipers, cranks, etc look haphazard. Colored bars/stems/seatposts are rarely the proper choice on a build.

    At least make sure you're riding the bike in your best white skirt with a nice white purse.
    Don't worry, I don't care and I don't try.
    Too bad you did not see my last hardtail from which those parts are pretty much all taken.
    That frame was.... WHITE

    ^ Agreed, everybody likes their bikes to look good, but this guy and his coordination/combination analysis took it WAY too far lol

    I think that Ragley looks nice, and it must be a hell of a fun ride!

    ...and another modest ride

    I built this on the cheap to get into single speeding mostly with parts I had lying around. The REBA Team U-turn I had on it originally was murder on my back due to a poor riding position so I swapped in this Marzocchi 150mm and no more back pain

    Your bike is sweet. I like the white, and I have great taste.

    Here's my custom Ti hardtail, made by Triton in Moscow. More info here: Triton Bikes. Titanium frames handmade in Russia. Anyone? :)

    Usually with a dropper post, but am going to ride without for a bit. it'll probably get put back on, but we'll see. The simplest/fastest/nimblest/lightest of my bikes. When your XC bike is a 6" forked hardtail, things aren't bad.

    Nice bike, specs and weight? Also what's up with the saddle pushed all the way forward?
    Buy a f-ing bike maybe you wouldn't be fat

    Chromag Kamui size small, Rev Dual Air @ 150mm, 20mm variety
    XX brakes 160mm/140 XX shifter, X.9 type2 rear mech
    Woodman post, SLR saddle, Salsa clamp
    RF Turbine stem 70mm, Sixc DH bar, Ruffian lock on grips
    XTR crank and 30t ring, Endura ceramic bb, XT pedals
    e.13 XCX guide, 11-36 XT cassette
    King/Arch/The Captain 2.1 UST rear with 10mm Hadley thru-bolt
    Hope Pro/XC717/Bontrager XR4 2.25 front
    flush sitting 44mm headset thing -the name escapes me

    Lots of ti and alu bits sprinkled liberally - a little over 23# based on my screwed up Park scale. Tossing the Gravity Dropper back on adds just shy of a pound. It's light-ish and spindly looking, but is a very capable bike.

    Seat is goofy that way for the way I like ride and how my body is. Average arms and legs for my size, but short-ish torso. I've found it's what works for me. Longer frames and shorter stems leave me way too stretched out feeling, same frame with a shorter stem and the seat further back leaves my weight hanging way back.

    Longer TT bikes but with steeper ST angles would likely work out, but this works, so I run with it. All four of my rides have similar setups. I like being low up front, and weighting the front end quite a bit.

    Brilliant. That's one of the most interesting frames I've seen around here lately. Very very nice.

    Looks like an inner tube- great idea- does it inhibit the seatpost's range of motion of smoothness?

    No, doesn't impact on the range of movement at all. But It did slip off the top stanchion of the post quite a lot, so I've removed it now. Just make sure I clean and oil the post after every ride, with Fork Juice.
