Very nice.. Mine has still some parts missing but they are on the way. This is going to be a Singlespeed "Chiner" for commuting and light offroad. Frame and fork is less than 4lbs. If I like it I'll put on a 10 speed cassette and a suspension fork....

Thanks! Is that an ebay China frame? Been thinking about one of those...

Yes, 29er frame (hence the "Chiner"). I'm surprised about the craftsmanship. I researched it on the bikeforums and folks are pretty pleased about it.
I'll send out pics when it's done. Some of the parts I want are on backorder but I hope to have it finished by february.

Not at all.. Click here

Shipping only took about a week. Comes with a headset and I really like the internal cable routing. The only issue is getting a bottom bracket for the BB30 shell. But I got an adapter that will work with my shimano crank/spindle I have from a previous bike.

I'll post more pics as I go along....

I don't know the conditions you ride, but be careful with that Slant Six on the front if you do any loose over hard or fast corners that are not hard packed. I found out the hard way that it's not the grippiest front tire.

It performs much better on the rear.

Don't you HATE when that happens!

Fortunately, the trails I ride are predominately hardpack and rocky so for me, the Slant 6 on the front works great. It's the square profiled front tires I have a problem with around here.

VN tire recommendation

I haven't ridden em so can't comment. Look decent enough for hardpack

I started using VeeRubber 8 for my 29er on hard packed trails. They are pretty good and very reasonable. Also very smooth on paved roads.
