Props for committing fully to the theme of your build. It looks amazing and what a unique mix of parts. Congrats on such a head turner! Only problem is having to add at least 30 minutes to every ride so you can field a barrage of questions at the trail head.

Some people like to 'play' when they ride MTB. 27.5" is more responsive to rider input and changes in direction/acceleration/braking. Speed isn't everything, sometimes its more about the sensation with the bike. Wheels/tires/frames/forks are always lighter, don't need carbon rims to keep things feeling tight, easier to pump/generate speed using terrain vs maintaining momentum on 29". I'd say its a more engaging process, and for some riders that feels more rewarding. Why would you care if someone doesn't want to ride the same wheel size as you?

For those who were lamenting the loss of Loris with Jordi, have no fear. They found another crazy Frenchie to shout indecipherable moto sounds at the good-natured tech who never seems to get a moments rest.

The rear line twist at the lever needs to be clocked. Unbolt the lever from the bar, unthread the compression fitting until the line can rotate. Then you can rotate the lever body 180 deg from where it would be on the bar. Snug the fitting by hand, then start tightening it with a wrench. The lever will rotate back to its ideal position as you torgue the fitting. Think about holding the line in the position you want and screwing the lever into the line. Hope install is finicky.

Track down the inline fitting used at the lever - its the same thread pitch and can be used at the caliper. I did this on a custom Bronson and it worked well. The bend is much softer.

Being nice to the employees at yourfriendlylocal bike shops!

Unless it was tongue-in-cheek/ironic, I feel like this was a music fail. I could maybe see it if they were smashing through a nasty tech section in the rain, but for sunny flow laps? Please try again.

Amazing level of effort and commitment required to complete this from start to finish. Can't imagine how many late nights were involved sorting out fine details. Huge props to Vlad for having the vision and drive to pull this off!
