I built this up from a frameset with a mix of road and mountain parts I already had.Dajianshan said:What do you have going on there?
Stock vs. non-stock parts? I see a Kenda up front... rear?
How does it ride?
Grand Nagus said:a cheap slick from Performance in the rear.
It has room for larger tires.
Do you happen to know what the rim width is on those Bontys?Grand Nagus said:...
Bontrager racelite mountain wheelset.
BB7 brakes 180 front 160 rear.
For your intended use, you won't regret the bigger chainring up front. I race on 36/46 up front, but during the "off-season" I swap out to alternate gearing. Currently running 34/50 up front. The 34 is nice for steep singletrack climbs, and the 50 is nice for bombing fire roads and group road rides.Grand Nagus said:The drivetrain works perfectly, though the 44t big ring is a little low at times. I think I can go up to a 46 or 48 with this crank.
