    First!

    I like the bike. A lot. You ever gonna trim those brake lines, though?
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    That's a good looking ride! How do you like the rear Novatec hub? How many points of engagement?

    Not my first SS, but a first complete package specific build .
    Brakes I will swap these for Hope race X2s like my other bike once $ permitt.
    Seat post well it's a 19" frame. I have a silver tompson 410mm as well but the syncros is lighter and just long enough to fit. I'm blessed with long legs/short trunk (I'm 6'2")
    Novatech hub, I don't really like it, but a Hope Pro 2 trials hub & Pro 2 front hub is on the wish list, with DT Rev DB spokes & alloy nipples. Can't decide to keep the alex rims or go with 717 to save 43g each. My other geared wheels are Pro 2s/717/Rev DB.
    The stem is ok but the bars are a brick. Easton EC70 straignt would drop 100+g.
    So thanks for the input, any suggestions on improvements would be g8.
    She willl get lighter & performe like the frame was designed too.
