    You'll have to excuse that skewer position.

    Thing rides lovely. Absolutely lovely.

    Cheers!

    Lacking pictures in this thread, but i will snap some more in the weekend. I would like a carbon seat post for the frame. 27,2, 330mm setback. Black. If anyone has some cool stuff lying around, do please share :)

    …Then I'm a happy man! And they have that functional non-fancy look, so I'm sure they will compliment the bike greatly.

    Ordered a couple of these now. Cost half the price of 9100, and i'm pretty confident they will do the job

    Thanks guys! I'm gonna check up on the pics and resolution! :)

    I've been reading up on the quick release thing. I'll definitely go with the internal-cam solution and pass on the lightweight. I had no idea how important this was. QR's has been something i've always neglected. The ones i run now are absolutely horrible

    Thinking the Shimano XT's will do the job.

    i'll check up on the Lifeline skewers, and thanks for the inputs guys! :)

    I haven't experienced any issues with the pictures on any of my devices? Thats a bit weird

    Cheers everyone! :)

    I am also getting pretty excited about the first long test ride. The cranks was a pair of force 22's i had lying around from another project. They are 175, and need a pair of 172,5 for this one. Or at least that was my conclusion from the first couple of test rides.

    And brakes feel a tad squishy. Might have to bleed them again.

    Gearing works phenomenal. The Rival rear mech shifts smooth and silent

    A thru-axle upgrade is inevitable. But i am already over budget by miles on this thing, so it will have to wait.. :) If anyone has any good suggestions for a pair of quality QR skewers I'm all ears

    Did the first test ride yesterday. Needles to say, the frame is brilliant. What a gorgeous ride.

    Still a a lot of improvements to be done. Gonna go for a longer stem, switch the crank arms for a different length and those sort of things. Other than that i think its ready to go to the woods!
