No talk of fork offset to make all the secret sauce work?

The Lost Randoms - Interbike 2018
Onyx showed an adapter that will allow the DT Swiss Micro Spline driver to be used on their body. I'd guess we might see a few of these come up. Would be a smart thing for someone like Wolftooth to make for a few of the more popular hubs.

@RecklessJack: Thanks The North Shore is my backyard, plenty of steep trails where this geometry is really nice. Steep seat angle is great for steep technical climbs, the slack ha is great for steep technical downs. With that said I am planning to make the next one a touch less slack so that I can extend the reach and keep the wheelbase about the same as it is now. I also plan to bring the bb height up a touch.

@lozzerbiker: Torch, home made jig, vise, files, tube blocks, and a benchtop milling machine. The mill was about $2k cad and I'd say I have about another $1k in the rest of it. I build my first hardtail and first full suspension bike with just vise, files, and a torch. It's a bike not a spaceship, you'd be surprised at how crude you can build something and it will still ride well. Geometry is more important than fancy tools and pretty welds. Alignment just needs to be sorta okay, you don't notice a few mm's of misalignment when shredding trails.

@enduroNZ: No engineering degree and only about $3000cad in tools. https://www.pinkbike.com/photo/16145875/ It's not a super bike, but it's my super bike. https://www.pinkbike.com/u/shirk-007/album/NPC144/
