I Just Couldn't Help My Custom Built Lust Self...

Post by Escape Goat » Wed Mar 20, 2019 10:01 pm

So this build started off with a frame bag that came too late for the winter event :sad: ....I didn't end up sending it back because of one thing or another. I then found some cheap 29+ rabbit hole rims :cool: , then came across some fat bike hubs. I then seen a Surly Wednesday frame...then this happened...

I've always liked 29 plus, and I've always thought that I'd like a fat bike, so some wheels are on the way via a friend for 26 x 4 ish, but for now, this is the addition to the family for all the bike packing routes I have planned.

I didn't really need ANOTHER bike but I do like a bit of algebra, :lol: N+1....

I'm in the same boat as you, don't really like over built frames, but I'm pleased how it's built up. Managed to do it on a super mega low budget, which was the plan. :-bd

even refrained from ordering some Sram 12 speed!

I've refrained from 12 speed for a while. I use sunrace cassettes now with shimano shifting.

When my 11 speed wears out I may look at a wider range 11 speed...
