Managed to put it together before work started. Didn't need a tensioner with a new chain.
Sorry about the potatoe cam. Will take better photos.



And I'm curios to try these bars. 25.4mm, DH rated, 760mm wide. Don't know exactly what to expect.



So ,,, magic gear ??? what size is your chain ring and cog ??

32 : 17

Running a different chainring this time, looks like I might get away with no tensioner for a good while.

looks super nice, what frame is it again?

If you click on the pic it will take you to the album named Production Privee Shan. My first guess was a RSD Middlechild.

ah thanks, looked like an RSD to me too but i didn't want to assume anything and as it turns out i was indeed wrong

how could it look like and RSD since it has the straight seat tube and the bent one on RSD is the first thing that's just popping up in your eyes?

ah yes, my immediate perception of what something might be us obviously wrong and should be ignored. the first thing i saw was the seat tube brace which looks like an RSD to me.

It's the other way round actually. The RSD seat tube brace looks like the Production Privee seat tube brace Wink
They've been doing that since 2012 at least.

Finally back in the steel family with this weekend Chromag build! Swapped everything over from my Nukeproof Scout frame, plan to build that one back up next spring as a lighter weight aggro XC toy.

Been breaking it in and fine-tuning fitment on some street rides (hence the Schwalbe Supermoto tires), absolutely loving these short chainstays.

Very cool ! Aw damn, didn't know those tires existed, was looking for something like that for setting a bike up more for urban riding .....ended up buying some cheap specialized semi slaughters....

Yeah they weren't on my radar either, until I decided to retire these old Nukeproof Horizon wheels as street shoes. Filtered tires by price on all the online shops, CRC had these on clearance for 15 bucks a piece. Heavy but squishy and indestructible

They look perfect for urban assault riding.

My old 631 Switchback with a new subdued look, all very used bits except for a new PNW dropper, I cleaned the chain and cassette a little to much so will have to build up some dirt and grime on it to stop it from skipping on a few cogs..
