    Love your build, definitely not the cheap route tho.! I have a Trance Advanced SX as well. Been thinking about getting Derbys. Did you ride yours with the stock wheels first? Curious about the difference in stiffness, wheel performance? Any complaints about the Derby wheels? If I had more disposable income: BOS Deville fork, CCDBA or BOS Kirk Shock, Derby Rims, Next cranks, Hope brakes, Reverb Stealth 150...

    I've ridden the stock wheels, and they are definitely stiff, the Derby's are on another level however. Unfortunately, the Reverb stealth is no longer offered in a 150mm for the 30.9. This one is broken and I am now rocking a KS.

    Thanks, looks pretty low
    Do you have some side view picture? And btw did you weighed the frame alone?

    Didn't weigh the frame alone, didn't really care about overall weight as long as it was as strong as I hoped. This is a side view photo! Message me and I'll send you some other ones if you'd like.

    40 mm wide rims? Holy footprint, batman. That thing is hot.
