Been making some good progress recently...
Laid all the fillets around the frame except the rear triangle and started to get them cleaned up
Spent some time aligning everything. This turned out to be one of the most nerve racking things iv'e done thus far, but also pretty assuring since all my welds held up to the bending
Currently working on getting the seat stays mitered in, which has proven to be pretty difficult
Also have everything for the build now:
Rock shox reba rlt 29
Chris king headset
Thomson post and stem
White industries eno crankset
CB eggbeater sl
Shimano BB(to be replaced by W.I.)
Chinese freewheel(to be replaced by W.I.)
Stans ztr arch ex 29
Dt Swiss competitions
KMC Z chain
Truvativ stylo bar(to be replaced by something carbon and american made(apparently the thomson bars are made in Taiwan?))
Avid BB7 / g2 rotors
Avid speed dial 7
Jagwire carbon mtb cables
American classic tubeless valves
I originaly wanted for everything to be american made, but that has proven to be quite impossible...
Can anyone suggest some american made handlebars?
I'm aware of ENVE(a little more pricey than im looking but a possibilty), Thomson(bars made in taiwan), groovy(which is steel or ti and only comes in 25.4 and not 31.8. Are there any others that are carbon and 31.8(not looking to run a big'ol shim)
