Nope, it's perfect.

Bike #30..

I just got the frame today, so I'm building her up little by little (we have a small baby that I take care of)

2013 9zero7 mostly XTR (when possible) with some Hope red details (thanks James)


Cool details, or at least I think they are cool.

The rear end is massive at 170mm wide.


Most people hate this "STI" dual control levers but personally I like them a lot, plus they are great to operate with thick gloves or even mittens.


Chainstay protector using a "Mister tuffy" type liner.


Oury grips safety wired since the bike will be expose to so much moisture and just plain snow.


Looking forward to a test ride this weekend

She's gonna be a beaut! I caught the old-school Shimano pedals too. Got a pair of them on my old Zaskar.

what reasons for the curved top and down tubes? Are they curved for artistic flaire, or for some mechanical design advantage that I can't understand?

Also, I have become enamoured of the "thin gripsters" pedals from VO. They have spikes like the fastway pegs, are super thin, and plenty wide. Grant Petersen is selling them... http://www.rivbike.com/product-p/pe4.htm

Top tube curved for standover clearance, downtube curved for fork crown clearance.
