    Oooooooooooooooh-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! It's a Nomad with a floater and some Chris Bling hubs. Nice build, love the contrast of the white-red.

    Hope you don't mind my asking, but whats the floater all about?? I know what they're mainly used for, but on VPP types & FSR's there's really no reason. Are you using it to alter the braking and no I don;t mean brake-stiffening(jack)?

    Meh...my Hadley has that already - a 10mm thru-axle.
    As others have said - are you going to run a huge rear rotor?

    Yep... I tried to get red Hadley's, could not. Although I have had some people tell me the aluminum T/A they have does not hold up to many taking on and offs. I am working on a 64AL ti set up, should be done soon.

    Just a standard 6" rotor. I'm all about the best contact, great modulation quality brakes. For me its more about flow and momentum than brute force braking.

    That's cool. Looks like a well thought out set up. Post pictures of the complete bike when it's done - looks like it will be an awesome build!

    The Al axle on the Hadley had me wondering too, but so far it has worked flawlessly, and a Ti axle is avaliable also.

    Hurry up and get your bike finished, and post a ride report!!

    Step 1: Finish the build!

    Step 2: Take the complete bike outside in the sun.

    Step 3: Position yourself eight feet away from the bike.

    Step 4: Take a good pic.

    Step 5: Post pic here, and stop teasing us!
