    A few bikes

    Here are a couple of my bikes...
    The Hakka Disc is my main transportation these days.
    The Ripley was built TODAY, very excited to get out on it...

    Jeff just built a nice looking HDR and is putting it to good use, as shown!

    Hans, what upper chainguide is that on your ripley? Not sure if I'll need one as I will be using the new wolftooth chainring upfront but would be nice to know which mount works with the direct mount... also... is that the TRS race crank? It's not compatible with a bash right?

    Yes:

    XCX+ High Direct Mount | the hive

    The crank is the Race crank. It wouldn't need the guide, but they didn't quite have the wider chainrings ready yet.

    Hans, is that an XL Ripley frame? Does this mean they're coming in from Asia now? I'm absolutely dying to get mine, been on order since May...

    Hans: on the ripley - 34mm set at 120mm?

    I'd absolutely digging my ripley...running the 34mm 140mm but am going to drop the 140 to either 130 or 120 to quicken up the handling.

    Hans,
    I ordered a small Ripley frame and having trouble deciding on a fork. Do you prefer 120mm over 140mm forks on it and why?

    My preference is for the best cornering on flat and less steep DH, so the 120 rules for that. The light weight is also compelling if you're building your bike up more XC and less AM. It can go either way with good results based on the kind of riding you like to do though.

    can you describe the cable routing on your ripley? did you route the dropper cable through the frame since you're running 1x?

    also, do you know if the cable that comes with the new Thomson post will route through the frame? from what i understand it is 5mm vs. 4mm for standard cable

    thanks!!

    5mm won't fit, you can fit up to 4.5 mm housing.

    Thanks!! The other question I had about set up was chainstay clearance...I'm running 156q xx1 cranks...there is maybe 1-2mm of clearance...is that enough?

    Thanks again!!
