Appreciate the insights, this has knocked the idea out of my head to re-lace a wheel with Berd spokes over the winter. If it ain't broke why fix it.

That thing is HOT
One question tho.. Braided brake hose, do you feel any difference to the rubber/plastic stock ones?

So f*cking cool .... Have you ridden it yet ? Is the geo experimental ? your design?

@slacker i have not ridden it yet. usually i do not hesitate to ride in slop, but right now trail conditions are really bad plus i don't really find the time to ride. but i am really curious if my custom geo works as intended. small frame, short reach, high bb - this one is a crossover of a ssp xc bike and a dirtjump/fourcross bike (hence the name 4XCSS).

@adm it has mainly medium level parts, most of which i sourced from my old bike. i just painted and polished a lot. new parts are mainly the small ones, headset, chainring and such.

@fred these are not braided steel hoses, only basic kevlar hoses with fabric housing for the looks. jagwire hoses work fine on all my bikes.

The anticipation will keep you stoked... I wouldn't want to the that beauty out in the slop right off the bat either.

In terms of usability and longevity I have my doubts that the small rear cog was a good choice, though.

well, the 13t came with the SSP kit so wel'll see. i have some more sizes of cogs and chainrings in the parts bin. plan b is at hand too, with a (hand polished) 10-speed xtr short cage derailleur and an 11-23t road cassette. just in case i grew too fat for single speed.

I will try the weekend. I am swapping things around on some stuff and have been genuinely curious myownself. One of the only drawbacks I have with Advents shifter is the non release clamp. I love my foam grips and once their on their on. So I get less bar swapping fun between bikes when that clamp goes on lol



Ok .... well then... I had no idea what sort of holiday activity packing the wife had in store for us this weekend... but needless to say.... I didn’t get ten minutes alone in the garage. I may be having to try this out after the christmas’s.

O+

Seriously, f*ck the holidays. I've been in and out of the crawl space all week grabbing Christmas decorations and the like. I'll be lucky if I get find a time to ride before the new year that is not already taken up by some family function. Bah humbug
