Additional Info This honey still shreds. I have so many 26" rims and tires this thing will never die. Funny thing is, so many of the local trails are tight and twisty I still end up taking the old girl instead of the new shiny stuff. There is still something about this single pivot with the APP linkage that pedals well and gobbles up chop. It feels like way less than 150mm sometimes and more other times.

    Thanks, maybe around $700 since I had so many parts laying around and SC sold me the frame very cheap.

    Awesome build! Love all the custom touches. How much did it cost overall?
