    Hi Mate,

    What I have listed there on the build list is the parts that I have installed...no ********.

    I believe running tubeless and normal seatpost saved a fair bit..Although the weight might seems heavy, it was very stable when doing drops and the coil shock was such a beauty.. coming out from a 4" air shock/fork bike, I love this new setup...

    Climbing uphill are just more heavier but still manageable...

    Hi Chris,

    How I wish I had my own workshop...it's quite hard to cater a room for workshop as most of us lives in apartment that cost 350k..

    I build my bike at Two Wheel Action in Clementi who used to be Santa Cruz Distributor in Asia...nice folks and good price for bike setup and repairs too..

    They do rental bikes too...

    Just picked up an '07 Commencal Supreme 7.2 from a coworker. He let me borrow it about a week ago to test it out and I love it. It's got Hope brakes in the rear, 66VF2 fork, a Fox RP3, Specialized lo pro mag 2 pedals, and I threw on shimano slx shifters and derailleurs today. Live about 5 minutes from those trails, so after my ride I hurried home to grab my camera so I could go back and get a few pics before the sun went down.



    I'm not new to this, I'm true to this

    ^^@liranbachar - that is a clean build for your Firebird. White is definitely a good color for that frame and fork. Very sweet!

    I ordered DMR viral chainguide since it's the only chainguide that works with 30t but I didn't get it yet
    Until it gets here I made me a temporary chainguide

    v2 Canfield One

    The best MTB I've had to do everything with. Built with Hammerschmidt, 66 RC3 ti Evo, X-Fusion Vector HLR Air, I9 Enduro wheelset. 36.3 lbs here.



    7" or 8" of rear travel. Amazing at how well it pedals and climbs in either position. Love it!!

    Sold off the Reign, Trance X, and put the ol 6Point back together. Unfortunately, at 36lbs it's 9lbs heavier than my Reign. I've got it slapped together with spare parts right now so it will be losing weight in time.

    Thanks, sure it's sees a lot of dirt, as it's my only bike, I use it for everything.
    It's a 17,5" actual or 18,5" virtual.
    Tires are Contis RK, they are extremely fast so I swap them when I'm commuting.

    Kameraguy that Canfield looks mean as hell, sure it can take some abuse!

    xpeppyx, the ASR-7 is such a sick, underrated bike! I was real close to picking one up myself! Congrats!!!

    Sorry, didn't realize you were refering to my post. Yes, it's a Prime.

    The lower roller didn't quite work on the MRP medium angle G2 SL partly because of the suspension design, partly because of the ISCG tabs. They will be rotated counter-clockwise a bit for production. I might try to mod the guide plate to make it work...

    Yep, it actually pedals very well.

    No pictures or videos yet- I've only ridden it once on a proper trail and I was solo.

    Here's a POV video from someone on a Prime, though:

    I don't know. The scale reads 32.50 lbs. I was hoping for under 33, so I'm happy. I could still drop a lot of weight on tires, handlebar, stem, and cassette. I like it the way it is, though.
