That's so hot. Nice job on the build. Chainring especially is a nice touch.

What rear tire is that?

Thanks! The rear tire is a 2.3 Minion DHR II. It's the stock tire which I might switch up to something faster rolling.

Only 2 rides in, but I'm enjoying the plus tires so far. Grip on rock slabs is ridiculous, as is traction on rooty climbs. Its a very confidence inspiring [HTML_REMOVED] fun ride [HTML_REMOVED] it doesn't seem to roll noticeably slower than regular tires.

Bought an 11 speed XT drivetrain (which is quite amazing btw), Blackspire chainring, freshly rebuilt shock, and fancy schmancy Nobl team issue rim decals. Nothing stealth about this bike!
