    I think it's a clear coat, it has a wet look to it. The finish is really nice, my pics don't do it justice. It's an XL, it's billed as an AM hardtail but I would call it a trail bike. Geo- 68.75 HA w/120 fork, 25" ett, it's designed for SS use w/adj dropouts and a breakaway seatstay for Gates belt drive, but I'm using geared dropouts. I have the chainstays at 17.25" w/2.35 tire but could go lower with smaller tire.

    I will post up more pics when I get it finished and show the dropouts

    Thx Jay, hey water boy told me you might be moving this way

    First ride was excellent, fit and handling were spot on and it's nice to have a reasonably light bike again. The Control carbon wheels are impressive, they felt as stiff as my Hope/Flows but you could really feel the better acceleration on the climbs. We'll see how they hold up.

    Couldn't ask for anything more or different, perfect bike for me Seriously sweet frame, parts and build and geo would fit me to the T, definitely jealous. You get a weight on the complete build yet?

    Thx Lynx, 27.3lbs final weight. Little over what I thought it would be but light enough for my tastes, and it feels lighter with the wheels.

    That's fully kitted out, pedals and all? I could surely live with that myself, think my Paradox used to weight about 28-29lbs with no dropper post. Someday hopefully in the not TOO distant future I'll be bale to afford my dream Ti, slack HT, but for now I'll drool over beauties like this

    Yup, ready to ride, yeah weight is not bad at all I agree, was just thinking it would come out a little lighter with the wheels/tire choice, and other carbon bits. Def need the crutch post tho.

    Yeah, I used to be anti dropper, but since I've gotten one it does come in useful, definitely find a lot more places to use it than just those super steep places I considered I'd need it for, still though I find myself riding fairly steep stuff without using it because I've ridden for so long without one.

    Gonna be up high riding with a friend around that time, away from the damn heat! Been a hot summer already here.

    Were gonna do Commando run one day, it's Vail pass into Minturn, not too far from GJ.

    That is a sweet finish for a steel bike. I have not seen one like it before.

    Thankfully it's not Ti

    Enjoy.

    Yeah, it's been over 100* a few days this week in GJ! Thankfully, riding up on the Mesa @ +10,000' is only 45 min away! It'll be a busy couple weeks until I can find a place & get moved in...after that, I'd be up for riding in the Vail area.
