So I just Built a new bike! I believe it is the long sought after holy grail of mountain bikes. The proverbial quiver killer.
After me cracking my frame and JHazard getting a new one. He gifted me his old one. A really cool thing of him to do an I cant thank him enough for it.
The frame is a Big Bad Burly Airborne Taka.
- 1.5 Headtube
- 83mm BB
- 150mm rear axel
- 8" travel
- 66 HA
- single piviot goodness
I needed a new BB for the frame. The theme was Bomb proof so i went with the howitzer.
So for the drive train I got a Wolf tooth narrow wide 30tooth chain ring. Out back I'm running a 11-34 cassette on a saint 9 speed derailleur. Since I have the narrow wide chain guard i decided to only use the top half of the chain guide. The DMR viral chain guide has separate pieces so if need be ill throw the bottom on
For brakes i got saint and zee. very happy with them. I love the mineral oil. I'm a messy dude and still learning how to bleed so the corrosive fluid normally used is a headache I'm happy to do without. Also my old pads were a "little" worn out
The fork is a rock shox totem 180mm travel 40mm stanchions. best fork ever
