First, it was revolutionary to go from "1, 2, 3" to "C, T, D." Now it is ground breaking to go to "O, M, F".....sort of explains itself doesn't it?

If you can buy the alloy cog separate as well I am a fan. If not, bollocks is what they would say.

Yup not pretty but if it rips who cares? No need to be a fashion queen. The numbers are good. This can be a trail bike or mini-dh which is something that doesn't exist in the US market but does in Europe and nearly everywhere else so I had to build my own similar rig.

I'm glad somebody is building these. 180mm can pedal great with modern shocks with no weight penalty so why not.

See: Liteville 601, Cube Fritzz 180, Canyon Torque EX.

Amen stainless chainring(s). Finally a smart company addresses the horrible durability of an alloy single ring in remotely sloppy conditions.

I thought for a second that I was badass and then I watch Claudio and I remember my place. That track looks nuts. Can't wait.

20mm x 142mm is my vote but this argument is too loaded not to elaborate... Richard Cunningham is, and has been, the sports most vocal journalist regarding industry tech for over two decades. He has railed against and rallied for many of our "innovations." ... more »

I dig the anti-SRAM pro-Hayes Group build. I usually do roughly the same thing. Color scheme is slick too. Love it.

Great riding and thankfully my hardtail doesn't cue such depressing music. I think some old Slipknot might be a better analogy as to how it feels to ride my hardtail versus my full sus on trails like that.

Look at those beautiful chunky trails!. My mousepad is smeared with tears because my chunky trails are still under 2 feet of snow.

You will need to remove alot of material from the rocker link that connects to the shock to make room for the air can. The only real way to explain where to remove material to for you to try to insall the shock and see where material needs to be removed. I took alot of material off and have pounded the bike hard with no signs of fatigue. The area that gets removed is not under any stress in any situation anyway. But yes you do grind a substantial amount of material away.
