• I made some progress on the Vagabong last night as some parts I've been waiting on; a new chainring and an adaptor to allow me to direct mount a SRAM shifter on XT brakes:

    Plan is to finish the build, test ride it, then send it off to get some eyelets added and then paint.
    Eyelets needed:

    • seatstay bridge
    • chainstay bridge
    • 2 more on each side of the fork - use the mid-blade eyelet on the fork as the middle of a triple mount
    • replace one of the braze-ons after a bolt head sheered off last night

    As for paint, it will be from this range:

    Also interesting to note, I originally wanted an AWOL, but on comparing the Geometry of both they're actually very similar
