So yea. Been gone from here for a long while, but recently built up a new bike, and been riding it quite a bit more, so I figured I would share. This site brought me lots of advice, and lots of laughs.
So without any more delay… The new 1x9 in my stable of bikes.
Frame: Transition TransAm
Fork: 2011 RS Revelation ti
Brakes: Hope M4 evo front w. floating rotor, Hope x2 evo rear
Wheels: built in Santa Cruz, Spank Subrosa rim, Loaded Component Hubs.
Headset: Chris King
Cranks: RaceFace evolve
Pedals: twenty6 predator (in full rainbow vomit trim)
Bar: Funn Flat out riser.
Seat post: Loaded components
Tires: WTB Bronson (in process of converting to tubeless)

The chainguide is coming this week, as the first few rides the chain slap and drop got very old, very fast.
Any questions, just ask.

Oh yea. I know it's got a tall front end. But it levels off real nice when I hop on it. So far, so good. Been over a decade away from a hard tail, riding nothing but my heckler/bullet. This is re-learning for me. Can't just moto your way through stuff.

haha. Thanks. Miss anything good?
I never stopped riding, but did stop acquiring bikes. That changed with this one..
The pedals are serious business. Traction like nothing else. Shins like fresh ground burger. Helps they are made in Montana as well…
