Additional Info

Loving this build, so much fun!  The shorter 165mm cranks are taking some getting used to, but overall I am really digging this bike.  I originally built it with a set of Galfer rotors, 200mm front and 180mm rear, but they were just not up to the task.  Bumped the front up to a SRAM centerline H2 220mm and swapped out the rear rotor to a 180mm SRAM Centerline H2 and braking got way better.  Not quite sure how a rotor can have that much effect since they are pretty simple, but there must be something a little off about my set of Galfer rotors, the rear, even being the same size is performing much better now.
