Finished Paul’s 29er and that will be heading to Mississippi shortly when a few extra parts for the build arrive. Lucky No. 727! Now his anniversary is stamped in steel never to be forgotten. Here’s some fresh shots after his frame came back from powder:

While I wait on some components, started and finished Lynn’s 650b. This will be a NH 100 bound 650b. So far it appears I’ll have close to 10 bikes in this race this year… Now I HAVE to do it. So I’ll be signing up shortly. In the mean time I’ve been “training” in earnest. Don’t want to turn this into a sufferfest. Back to Lynn’s 650b: This will be a mix of components including ENVE, Industry 9, Stan’s, e13, Thomson, Schwalbe, Sram and more. 2×10 drivetrain will most likely be X9 all around. Lucky number yet to be decided…
