Started Franky’s 650b this past week… This ones getting the 1×10 guideless setup thanks to Sram X9 Type 2 rear derailleur and a 32t GXP direct mount Wolftooth chainring. Here’s a few shots of the build getting started…

And I finished up a set of prototype bike packing bags for a client in North Carolina. These will be headed out west with him later this July to be put to the test. Here’s some shots and details of the setup. Our bikes are very close in build, almost exact really including parts spec so dialing in the setup was made that much more easy.

I also sewed up a folding map case for him. That’s what that little extra piece of velcro is for on the sling. Front and center where it’s easy to access. More on these upon their return from “Field Testing”. Have a great time Yuri!!
