should arrive tomorrow :mrgreen:

sadly I leave for Canada for a month on sunday and even if I get it built on time it's unlikely to be coming with me so first ride may not be until late July :shock:

The rest of the build;

Revelation RL 150mm 15mm through
Hope hoops (DT Swiss 5.1s) ghettoed with 2.4NN (F) and Maxxis 2.35HR (R)
Hope brakes (v2)
Renthal fatboy bar and 50mm split stem
XT 2x10 D.Train (may change up to 3x10, depends)
Easton Seatpost
SDG Saddle

If riding an XC race bike is like touching the trail,
then riding a rigid singlespeed is like licking it
... or being punched by it, depending on the day

    YAAAAR

    I test rode one in Brechfa last month (really not expecting much; slack angles are not usually my thing) and I was blown away so being middle aged and having a decent job I ordered one prety much on the spot. now I have a box of bits on my bedroom floor waiting for a frame to hang them from. can't wait!

    aaaand. built :mrgreen:

    P1020240.JPG

    have hoses to shorten (slightly) and probably add a chain tensioner but ready to go aside from that

    final build weight; 31lbs, I'll be looking for a set of lighter wheels as the havens on my Evil (sadly 2010 vers so not convertible to 12x142) are a full pound lighter than the hoops

    what I need to do now is ride the thing but sadly I had to leave for canada the day after I built her so she'll have to wait til mid July to stretch her legs
