    I hear you about summer school. I just finished my second class on 8/1. And the fall semester starts on 8/10.
    I take my final tomorrow and then I'm out for like a week or so before the fall semester I've been wanting to go tubeless really badly, but was going to wait until I built my new wheel set to make the plunge, but as cheap as I can do it at work now I believe I'm going to do it tomorrow

    Hey guys, I've got a 2014 model Honzo on the way. Can anyone tell me the seatpost diameter is? Im looking at getting a dropper. Also what length would I likely need for the large size model?

    Cheers Cant wait to get a leg over!

    Considering putting my new RF SL crank on the Honzo to lighten it up a little, but the way the Zee cranks are looking right now I got second thoughts about it. Dinged up the Zees at both ends of the crankarms

    I'm about to order me a set of RF cranks for my rig. Now I have to make up my mind on which model.....Turbine or Atlas........

    Check out the models they call "cinch" because they coils give you options to run smaller chainrings.

    Directmount is the simplest term for it.

    Dearman: Either should do just fine, I'd consider them both better than my Zee crank and it's working without flaws apart from me crashing it into things.

    The new Turbines look good due to the direct mount system. They are also aluminum instead carbon SL's. Also, you have options with Sram X7 and above or Truvativ AKA cranks. These have removable spiders and can be found cheaper than the new RF stuff if cost is a consideration.

    Can't beat the looks of these things though!

    The XX1 cranks can take directmount chainrings which aren't 11spd specific aswell, not that expensive compared to other carbon cranks.

    Just replaced the Zee cranks on my Honzo with Turbines, w/30t direct mount ring. A 32t e13 narrow/wide ring on the Zee cranks was actually rubbing my chain stay...

    Sure you used the right amount of spacers on the BB? RF 32t+Zee has plenty of clearance on my 2013 frame.

    I am convinced that the shimano SLX crank at $99 + a $30 NW ring is the best deal going right now

    SLX cranks sans rings 598grams +76 for NW ring, comes in below the 720 for the turbines

    and as much as I love race Face I think that the Shimano crank mounting system is much much nicer. I've spent wayy too much time trying to wrestle stuck race face cranks

    I love my Zee derailleur! I think I'm going with the Turbine's since our distributor at the shop doesn't have the Atlas's that I want ah well, Turbine's it is!

    I believe, after looking at them, that I'll be ordering the Cinch's when we put in our order on Monday, but I will use the adapter to mount my already-existing RF NW chainring. Great looking crankset too!

    I wanted to order some SLX's, but they don't make the M660 style anymore, which was my favorite! I'm going to give these Turbine's a shot though, and if they don't work I'll just sell em and buy some SLX's more than likely.

    In other news, I FINALLY covered my set-up to tubeless today. I used my T-R WTB i23 wheels, 25mm Stans tape, Stan's sealant, with my non-tubeless Maxxis Ardents. Easiest set-up ever, took no longer than changing a tube to make the change. I was going to wait until I built up my new wheels, but the suspense was killing me! Took it for a ride today at 25-Front and 28-Rear to be safe and what a difference! My confidence and speed around corners was greatly improved! Makes me feel like a dunce for holding out this long and blowing my life savings on tubes I'm going to experiment with which pressures to run, as I only weigh 165lbs.

    Add the Shimano bottom bracket to your total (the 720 for the Turbines included the BB), and you're at your real total: 760.

    However, weight was not the point. I went Race Face simply for the direct mount option. I hate chainring bolts! Also 30t looks like **** on 104bcd.

    Almost done...

    Scored an unridden complete 2012 20L on eBay last month and stripped it. Only stock parts left are frame, fork, and headset (the latter of which will be replaced as soon as I get around to it). Otherwise, all I really need is a new set of pedals...

    Re: Honzo Build Thread - post your builds here

    Does anyone know if the rear mech on the '14 has a clutch?

    If not... has anyone used a NW chainring with a non clutch rear mech successfully?

    Don't know about the RD on the 2014, but I'm running a non-clutch X9 on my fat bike with a narrow wide up front and have yet to drop a chain.
    On my Honzo, I use the MRP AMG bash/guide with a standard direct mount NSB ring and no drops in over 500 miles.

    Hey,
    I'm running the 2013 Honzo with the stock X7 derailleur (no clutch) plus the RF NW 30t chainring. Works great so far (i.e. no dropped chain) - had a couple of runs on my home trails, nothing extra gnarly.

    The derailleur on the 14 model does have a clutch: "10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain with Plus-style clutch derailleur." from the description.
