Not that you can really tell from the below pic, its starting to look as if I threw the crank brothers parts catalog at it.

From the stock 2012 palisades trail 29er spec it has:

Crank Bros Iodine 2 wheels
Crank Bros Cobalt 3 Stem
Crank Bros Iodine 3 seatpost
Race Face Ride 10 Crank
New SRAM X9 Rear Mech
Hope SS Bottom Bracket
Shimano 520 spd pedals
Funn Combat White Grips
Charge Spoon Saddle

I did have some superwide Gravity Light bars but getting through the trees was proving to be problematic so swapped back to the OEM Marin ones.

Enough tinkering for now methinks.

Here's the state of the BB when I got home from the ride above!

For the life of me I have no idea why there is a hole in the frame just behind the BB.

    Should have a sheath to stop it - but would you want water slashing around in your steel frame ?

    PS you can probably cut down the bars

    I strongly suspect it's aluminium.

    I could cut the bars down but really there isn't much wrong with the Marin ones other than the fashion faux pas.

    Sheath? Definitely aluminium.
