    another AC29er

    I know you're probably all bored seeing these as they're becoming common as muck but here's another

    medium frame, 12mm, ISCG HS and Conehead. went for a mixture of red and blue bearing caps and titan ano levers. works well in the flesh although might go all red bearing caps in the future. i'll see. oh, and chrome decals

    still waiting on flow rims to get it built and theyre not due till march!

    Unfortunately, nothing happens fast around here. Might be a couple of weeks before it's up and running. I've got some mavic open pros that can build to get it going till the flows arrive. Alternatively, I'm contemplating some crank brothers cobalt 29ers. Assuming they can be converted to12mm. I want to run ardent 2.4's and the cobalts re a bit skinny for that so I'll see. Forks are fox floats

    Rest of the build will be stuff I have lying around till I see what I want. Xtr chain set, xo
    everything else, sun line bars/stem, i900 post, hope brakes. Hoping it comes in at 30lb or so but frame aint exactly light so who knows!

    Whafe has fractured the bone below the elbow.
    I was trying to get him to ship all his AM29 stuff over to me to try not sure he was convinced on it though.

    Yep, as I lie here in bed tapping on the iPad with one hand. The biggest piss off is I am having a weeks holiday from work, always the way hey... Well the arm feels better pain wise this morning....

    Now onto dippers ac 29er. I am very much looking forward to hearing how this bike rides once it is built. Do hope it is enjoyed as much as I enjoy mine...

    independent and neutral my arse! you described to me yesterday exactly how it will ride and you've not even seen it let alone ridden it! I've met more open minded fundamentalists
