    I might be a little late to the party (12' TB) but here she is ^^

    Attachment 1004082

    Having only ridden her up and down the street, she feels like a fun ride.

    A little waggly in the hind quarters (compared to my process 134).

    Anyone thought of putting a bridge out back?

    Can't wait to get her out on the trails.

    Guy at my local lbs told me that the attached pic i.e. my front derailleur is 3x, but the setup is 2x (36/22). In small(f)/big(r) the chain rubs front der.

    Question is what should I replace it with?

    SRAM GX 2x10 Spd High Direct Mount 36/38T Bottom Pull Front Derailleur??

    Would above do the trick??

    Final pictures of the ole girl :sniffle:

    Frame has cracked around second weld job [emoji22]
    Gonna miss this bike for sure [emoji174]

    Been a great trail companion... a 2012 steed ahead of it's time.

    Just a shame, as I finally got it dialed in [emoji373]

    Next project is swapping all the parts over to my Nukeproof Scout 290 Comp frame. Should be here by Wednesday.

    A good riding buddy is giving me a hand... Wednesday/Thursday evening(s) swapping parts over... Hopefully dialing it in Friday night/over weekend.

    [emoji20] but [emoji2] at the same time [emoji106]

    Yep, XL...

    Chose the Scout Comp frame b/c it's no.s (in an L) are very similar to the 2012 Bandit 29.

    Except the Scout is 2.5 slacker up front [emoji106]

    Likely a bit more slack, due to 140mm fork I'll put on it vs the 130mm stock config.

    Definitely up for the challenge of tweaking my riding style/technique to cater for an AM HT.
