    That looks really good. I like the red and brown on the grey frame. Can you space out the rear cog any to help the chainline? Looks like it could use a couple more mm to straighten out. Also is the tire really huge or is the rear wheel slammed completely.

    Very cool. Final weight?

    Thanks!

    Chainline is dead straight at 49mm front and back. May be an optical illusion with the slight chain sag in the pic. Kind of looks like it runs in then back out.

    Have not weighed it yet, but guessing it's going to be a little on the heavy side. The 36H 36mm wide Transition Revolutions weigh a ton and the 2.4" Holy Rollers don't help, but those wheels should be bomb proof and who doesn't like a big booty.

    Rear tire is a 2.4 Holy Roller with ~2mm of clearance of clearance. Rear wheel is just a few mm shy of being fully slammed.

    Maybe it was the photo that made the chainline look angled. As long as it lines up then that is great. Yes the wheelset looks to be pretty sturdy.

    Hey really nice build and very swish bike...but after riding and smiling all day Saturday, you already know that, he he he.

    You should put up a speck sheet showing all your parts and bits.

    Demo,

    No offence taken and none meant in return.

    I must have spent over an hour playing with the spacers on both sides of the crank and on the rear hub to get everything lined up front to back, get the crank/chainstay clearance dead even, and still leave 23mm on the left side of the crankshaft to engage the left crank arm. The magic chainline was 49 and I think that number will be permanently etched into the few remaining brain cells I have left.

    The Deity Vendentta cranks were great for dialing in the chainline.

    Weighed it yesterday, 30.4 lb. Not too bad. Turned out a little lighter than I thought it would with the Revolution 36 wheels and the 2.4" Holy Rollers. It will probably loose ~0.25 lb when I drop back to the 2.2" Holy Rollers.

    Just wondering this may sound dumb but; did you get the frame seperate from everything else? because I went to order the frame from my bike shop and they said the riot frame doesn't come in that color, only the full riot bike does. Im just like wtf?? thats horse ****.

    oh and how much did that head set cost you? looks sick man!

    Yes, bought the frame and all the components separate and built it up myself. The grey frame is sold as a frame only. If I recall correctly the Stolen headset was ~$30. It's really a Cane Creek headset with a Stole top cap. Cane Creek makes a pretty good integrated headset.


    Good luck...
