    BIKE PIX added! 9:Zero:7 First real ride and this is what my face looked like...



    We finally finished running the brakes and putting on the correct (read: usable) FD yesterday and we took it up into the woods for a ride last night. My friends thought I was nuts when they saw it but I think I changed their minds when I held tightly to their wheels and was even faster than a few on FS bikes.

    Of course, we are all at different abilities but I haven't ridden in the woods all year so to start with my fatty was interesting.

    The only thing I think I need to drop the pressure a bit - ran it at 11psi- to keep down some of the bouncing but this is NE singletrack and it's rocky so I wanted to start a bit higher and tune as time went on.

    It was a blast and super nimble- thanks 9:zero:7- and powered up some climbs I certainly would have had to hike on my regular 29er.

    Overall, an awesome ride with an awesome machine that garners awesome stares.

    The saddle is the WTB Rocket V "test" saddle (why it's black and yellow) from the LBS. I'm not sure about it just yet but I have a feeling I'll change to a straight black one at some point.

    As far as buy or build- depending on what bike you buy it could be a LOT less expensive. I am into this for dealer cost on every part I think and I'm in deeper than I planned when I decided to go fat. "Oh, the X7 is only XX more, then let's go with that" happened a lot on this build. When I spec'd it out on paper I figured a cheapo crank- dealer cost about $45- and you'll notice I have an e.13 which was WAY more than that even at cost!

    Regardless, it's awesome and I am VERY happy I built it. Thanks for the kind words man even if this specific bike won't end up in your garage.

    HAHA, NOPE I'm a dude. Pink accents on all my bikes keeps random people from riding them. I have pink cables on my Inbred 29er, pink HS on a BMX race bike, pink rims and hubs on my fixie, etc.

    I haven't named her yet, only one ride so far so nothing has jumped out.
