    Now, that's White clay right? Over at the bottom of the Snow Goose trail when you cross the stream to go over to Double Horshoe/Lenape?

    How long do you ride when you go? I usually only have time for 8-10 miles out there, I'm pretty slow to moderate pace on a good day (One hour and 15 minutes)...My riding buddy is without a bike and I am tired of riding solo. We'd look kinda goofy riding together with the same bike though..Let me know if you want to meet up, just getting into riding again after 8 year layoff..

    Actually, that's about 70+ miles south of White Clay in Patapsco, MD. I think I know where you are referring to. White Clay is a lot of fun. Very well maintained trail system. I really like the Skills Trail. Was suppose to head up there with some friends last weekend but was down sick. I'll pm you the next time I plan on heading up there.

    I comletely agree, whenever I stand up and pump my tire rubs slightly
    I posted these in a prior thread, but here they are again


    Also I feel that the head angle is a little steep, I always feel like I am going to over steer compared to my old Stumpjumper, though this may be due to the fact I went from a 26 to a 29er...

    It would be cool to compile a list of all tires that fit the Razzo's rear comfortably.

    How tall are you? Inseam length?

    What issues are you having with travel at 80mm?

    6 foot 3
    inseam is maybe 34?bike fits very well.
    just seams to bottom out periodically but I like the action of the fork overall and feel I have it set right for my size...just preference i guess.
    i am still barely a clydesdale and am racing my way out of that category this summer!

    So for someone 6' you agree the large frame would be a good fit?

    yes, i would say large would be better for 6 foot.
    XL would be too big.

    Pic and ride report

    First ride out on the trails with the Razzo. I picked a trail that I thought would be a tough one for a 29er and it was indeed tough, but not really any "harder" than on my 26" bikes. There are a lot of technical, slow speed sections, as well as some punchy steep sections. The downhills are fairly high speed but certainly not as fast as some in the area, and their are multiple places were it is as tight as tight can get down in the creek beds.

    I was impressed by the performance of the frame and the bike seemed to love to go fast in places where I could. I'm looking forward to more rides with open downhill speedys and some sustained climbing where I can give a better report. Here are a few pics from today...

    That's part of the Wilson Creek trail system in the Idaho Owyhees. Rough trails but the scenery is nice and the drive is short.

    Notice the rock wall on the second picture, that trail is called "China Wall" for obvious reasons... You actually ride along a rock wall for about a mile or so... My first time riding that trail today, so it was a good day.

    Razzo Ride #2

    Today I took the Razzo out on my benchmark loop that I always go and test my fitness and new/current bike setups on. It managed to come withing a few minutes of my personal best (with much more training than this year) so I was pleased. Here's what I can tell so far about the Razzo... from this ride going up and back down...

    http://www.mapmyride.com/route/us/id...27899488786565


    Climbing is good. Not sure if its the 29er or what, but I cleaned every difficult climb (some extremely loose and steep sections). Traction is very good and the bike doesn't wander much on very steep climbs.

    Descending is awesome for a hardtail. I was really flying down the trail on the way back down the hard guy/fast guy trail. Gotta love the 29" wheels for that. Loose stuff coming down did not cause a lot of drama. The bike is very stable coming down long descents.

    Long ride comfort is not bad. I was impressed that I didn't feel more beat up at the top or bottom of that climb today. I think the frame is fairly comfy; compared to my Giant HT 26 incher bike it is night and day.

    How did you remove the decals?

    What kind of stem is that? Raceface?

    The bike looks sick btw!

    Hey, is that a 16"? I'm thinking about building up one of these frames to use as my work commuter bike...

    Great looking bike!

    Yeah, more info on the decal removal.....and what's the deal with the xl size and the different spacing of the top tube and bottom tube up front at the head tube? I like the look when the two tubes are together at the head tube.....that huge gap on the xl is not as nice looking in my opinion....

    each size frame has a different length headtube, and the top tube and down tube are always attached close to either end of the headtube. The headtube on the XL is long enough that this creates a gap. Longer headtube on the larger frames helps taller people not have to use so many headtube spacers and theoretically gives them a bit more front end stiffness. Only reason for shorter headtubes on the smaller frames is to help smaller people get their handlebars lower

    2011 22" XL Sette Razzo 29er Custom Build

    Here is the final product (sans the mismatch tires TBD)

    This is a 2011, $250 on pricepoint. Moved over most of the parts. New cranks, headset, seatpost, remainder is existing stuff I moved. Haven't had a good test ride yet other than on the neighborhood street. So far, so good. Cut down the fork with a hacksaw this round.. was already cut from last bike, but I needed another 3/4 inch off. Hacksaw does a better cut than the pipe cutter. Local shop pressed the cups for me for $8, I did everything else.

    Recent Ride Photos

    I took a break from my training this week and just rode. It was a fantastic week of relaxation and good moments on my Razzo.

    The first pic is a on a short little loop I do from home. Most of it is paved, but there is about 5 miles of dirt road and one little bitty section of singletrack. I still can't believe how fun this bike is.

    The last four are from the Boise foothills. I rode a loop with a couple of newer riders so I had time to stop and enjoy the scenery. Even found a little blackberry patch down by the creek that I'll have to stop by again.
