I have too much time on my hands...
Just selling Enduro Death Project and coming off of that loss, I already was contemplating my next full suspension build. But what? Had to be USA or UK made. Had to be lightweight. Had to be affordable...wait!!
There is ONE company that fits that, one that I ALMOST did a year ago, but went COTIC and the Solaris Max. One USA made company that might...just...
Guerrilla Gravity to the rescue! It checks all the boxes! Just under 30lbs. Inexpensive carbon frameset. Made in CO. Perfect! So now what?
I already have some of the parts for Gambler Death Project set aside, in my mind anyway. Why do I need 2 hardtails? And don't worry, Ferrum Bikes NVHT will be built...one way or another it's going to go down.
The GG was built and sold, within weeks! I liked it, alot, but....just no room in the fleet of hardtails. So once again, another FS bike bites the dust! Now on to bigger and better things...Stay tuned!
I've always toyed with wanting a carbon bike. So here it is! USA made and all! Too much travel? HAHAHAHA....whatever.
DVO makes some nice stuff. This is cream of the crop!
It just matches and looks amazing!
Just fits the look of the bike. Super light and super strong!
I love my TRP's. I've used Magura of late, great too, but the modulation and feel of a TRP is second to none! So...back to the best!
Because it looks amazing! And I won't be on it much anyway!
USA made and they just work!
What a sexy work of art this is! It came with the set, but is utterly amazing
I was going to go with an absolute black elliptical ring, but this thing is gorgeous and, well, it’s designed to work together… Will leave it as it is
after reading summer very positive reviews, and getting a pretty good deal on this thing, I decided why not. As good as the GX Eagle stuff is, that should be fantastic
I was toying around with the idea of getting a XX1 chain so I can get the rainbow color. Well guess what came with the X01 set? A rainbow XX1 chain! Epic!
I look forward to trying this when it’s mounted on a handlebar. It’s kind of a pain to play with without being on something firm. But the action feels spot on.
I like to keep things the same, DBO fork with DVR shock. And they consider this a good if not better alternative to the big name brands out there.
Different is good! Tread pattern that is. I loved my Conti's, so hopefully will love these just as much! Love the look regardless.
I was NOT happy with Flat Tire Defenders. So saw these, really inexpensive v the others, so though to try them. WOW! Super simple install and super light! I hope I never have to use them, but like insurance...just in case!
Matches the bar and pretty cool looking too!
