    Wow, you are geared even lower than me (I have 34T in front and fatter tires)

    But yeah, I like the style ... except I still feel the adjustable seat post is one moving part too many

    If I had that bike as it is, I would try to do a checkerboard pattern towards the back of it on the frame, to continue the theme you have at the front, i.e. the brakes & checks on the bars.

    Love that color, and that's a good-looking rig.

    Very nice, I love the Chameleon frame so much fun. The only thing i have against the build is the steerer tube, why so long if you are going to mount the stem so low, I would throw the spacers under the stem to clean up the look but otherwise great bike ya got there.

    Killer! Lets see it on some Fernie trails. I'm sure you deserve that low gearing.

    Yeah living in a town where the riding is fantastic (world class) just not a ton of pure XC. The gearing is pretty tough at the best of times. Our riding is usually a big killer long steep climb, then a sweet long DH down the other side. 33-19 is by no means an easy gear where I live, I consider my a fairly strong rider. I was running 32-18 for awhile , but the 33-19 ratio was a tad easier so I thought for the sake of fun make it a little easier. Come to Fernie to ride you will not be disappointed!
