So my 29er finally got finished today, mix of zona, life and some random 4130 based loosely on my all city nature boy geo. Big thanks to andrew lucas for building me a sweet frame and sasha at pony for letting him build frames in her shop and being generally awesome. Rode it today for a bit and it rides so good. The wheelbase is ridiculuos and clearances are stupidly tight with 2.3s hence why it’s got a narrow wide and no fd. Jones loops are also really awesome.
Bit torn that I can’t ride it for ages still as Andrew’s taking it to Nepal tonight but I wont have time to ride it for a while anyways. Now just gotta decide if I want any more braze ons and whether I want to paint it considering it looks so good raw.
I’ll do a full parts and stuff once I have it in my possession but I’m just excited to shred this thing.
Bike is ss’d ready for single speed nationals this weekend. Thanks to Sasha at Ponybikes the tubeless tyres and the brakes are working again after some hard kms in Nepal. Looking forward to finally actually riding it myself!
