    Good job! LenzSport Behemoth

    Got the new rig dialed and took it out for a 3 hour shakedown this am. LenzSport Behemoth frame, with 125mm travel courtesy of a Rock Shox MC 3.3 damper. Rock Shox Lyrik Solo Air fork, 160mm travel. LenzSport Mondo hub, allowing use of a 29" TA wheel in the 26" fork. Some SRAM and Shimano bits, as well as a set of proto Hayes DH brakes to round out the package.

    First ride bugs notwithstanding, it was a great ride. My legs need a refresher on pedaling a 34lb slack-angled bike up steep, loose, sustained climbs, but the payback was so damn fun that I don't think I'll mind re-learning. Effective seat angle was a bit slack, but I've already slid the saddle forward ~13mm for tomorrow's ride.

    Hope to get some ride shots this week. Will post pics and more thoughts once I've gotten a few dozen hours on it.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    How do you align the rotor with the caliper when using that excentric front hub. Does it come with aspecial disc brake adaptor or something?

    Sick bike!
    Definitely like the standover height and the fork.
    Are you a PRO?
    Or how do you end up getting all this proto stuff.
