    Seems heavier than I would have thought, for such a light build. Looks awesome!

    Pic from early summer I came across again! A muddy good time that day. I remember it well because I came face to face with a big black bear while by myself in an area I didn't know.

    Haha you always take great shots, do you ride mud often and does it take a toll on your reverb?

    I ride year round (though less in winter) and Vancouver winters are pretty muddy! This is the second winter the bike has seen and (knock on wood) the Reverb has required zero maintenance and works as well as new.

    Thanks on the photo quality... I have a decent camera and enjoy using it

    the 14.2 kg i've seen in another forum :D
    what about embedding a smaller pic, even if the frame is XL? ;)

    Can someone with 2013 B29 (with a 120mm fork) measure your static bottom bracket height? Trying to decide whether I can get away with an angled headset or not. Thanks.

    Any particular reason you're not using the dropper post cable routing?

    XX1 looks proper on the B29. Nice ride/build!

    Thanks, I am really happy with this thing so far. It turned out just as I hoped, light enough to do some casually competitive racing, yet still a blast as a trail bike!
