NSMB - 2015 – Hardtail Thread

I just put together this little guy to skid some fire roads with this winter

bought it off a buddy who say's its from 1981 ish? I like the gusset under the headtube.

Has an American BB, so this old set of profiles found a new home

Built up some new rims on to an old coaster hub and a road front hub. Spoke washers to keep it extra classy

this bicycle reeks of sex.

Specialized SWAT vest

bummer to hear about the pump.

been rocking SWAT bibs the last two seasons, using 2 bottle cages on the hardtail and keeping co2, tube and lever in a seat bag.

3 rear hubs on 2015 Kona Process 111 in 600km

one of my coworkers has had a similar issue with his 111's rear hub- big guy who rides hard.

he's for sure on his second and possibly en route to a third.

NSMB - 2015 – Hardtail Thread

What's with Kona? They were sucking it a few years back and it's been nothing but win for the last couple years. New people running it? New designers?

pretty sure the reason is chris mandell.

hoping for a boost rear on the 16 explosif to accommodate some fatter rubber.

my only complaint on my 14 and 15 has been the r tire clearance.

SWAT bibs, two bottle cages and a seat bag.

been using multiple small padded cases to prevent injury in the event of a crash, in addition to keeping shit organized.

25-30k is the max distance i've felt comfortable with this setup.

why?

2015 is identical and I like to keep bikes moving while they are still in good shape!
