Additional Info Dream meets reality build. It was super hard to find some parts and keep a consistent style with 2020-2021 parts shortages. Bought what I could when it was available. Goal was reliability and a bike built for the long haul and a 200 lb rider. No rear suspension to maintain, no creaky linkage. Must have threaded bottom bracket and a fork that can stay tall yet supple in all terrain. Big thanks to all my friends who helped find great parts to help make this happen and Hardtail Party youtube channel for great reviews and advice!
