Hey all. I've posted about this possibility before, but I never came back and updated ya'll. So here goes
I ended up ordering the Big Sur 29" from Zinn. I spoke with Lennard at length about my goals, needs, wants, size etc etc etc. The Big Sur made good sense. I put my deposit down and a couple weeks later, I gave the go ahead on this:
Its designed for a Rohloff. The build will include a Fox 32 29er fork, custom 215mm crank, Avid Code 203mm discs front and rear, Salsa Gordo wheels wrapped in Panaracer Rampage rubber, and held together with DT Swiss competition hardware. Other odds and ends include Crank Bro's 5050XX Pedals, Ergon GC2 bar ends, a Thomson stem, Cane Creek headset and a Brooks B17 saddle carryover from my old bike. All in all this should be one hell of a rig when its done.
Speaking of which, the only part of this process that I can't say I'm enjoying is the waiting. Unfortunately, I've been given three different ship dates now over the last three weeks with the latest saying the bike should be done tomorrow. I'm hoping so. Communication with the guys at Zinn has been hard too lately; apparently they're very busy (which is great to hear, but kinda sucks when you ask a question and it takes a couple days to hear back).
All in all, so far I'm still really stoked about this. Hopefully these minor shipping issues are over with soon, and I'll be able to throw up some pics of this bad boy!
