Custom Yeti SB130, No Quarter Graphics, Performance Elite Susp., King Wheels

Shakedown ride. Will be interesting to see if I prefer the 160mm fork or go back to a 150mm travel option. The last time the bike will be this clean... This is a bike we will get shots of dirty as it's built for Nate from! I wanted to do some custom graphics in a bit of a "classic" colorway - had to go with the No Quarter theme branding from designer Katie Grim. Handbuilt Chris King hubs laced to WTB Asym i29 rims. Built by master mechanic Tracy Sledge from A bit more vanity - new colored pucks for the MT5 brakes. Want a Grip2 or Fit4 without Kashima? So did I. So, I like black. A lot... Took photos at a few different times during the day trying to tell this bike's "story" so to speak. Morning photos - I wasn't sure about most of these. This one was ok - but I felt like I should try again later. Afternoon photo. Wasn't 100% on these ones either. So I shot a couple at dark. Because this bike is going out in the morning come hell or high water...
