Gregs 24MTBX

This one is a halfsy designed around a 60mm fork, with lighter tubes and smaller tire clearances for racing.

Some dirt just a few miles away from me, happens to be the best around.

The Knuckle guides have worked well, though they do require some modification (slots) to make it easier to insert the housing. With the slots cut, it was possible to insert/remove the dropper post and mechanical brake without loosening any Allen bolts.

The biggest benefit to these is the fact that they reduce any chance of rust, in a rust prone area. They also keep the cables a bit further from the top tube, so there isn't any housing scuff or annoying cable slap noise.

They aren't the best choice for hydraulic brakes or interrupted housing lines obviously.

3.75" rise bars because I like my bars way up there (better on the back) and 22.2mm because I can swap them out between bikes.
 I'v got my fatty set up single speed at the moment. I'll probably make a suspension fork for this thing some day. There are 10X more sand trails than bicycle only trails here in east Texas, so I can actually see riding this a lot. I am pondering filling the frame with yellow stuff insulation to make it water proof.

Scottys 22 is coated. Gotta wait a few days for the dryer weather to finish fatty and Greg's 24MTBMX  racer.

The dropouts usually need a little tweeking to fit the seat stay angles (regardless of the frame). The super low BB drop on a fat bike made the angles pretty far off so I decided to tweek the seatstsays with an additional bend.
Going to try these removable knuckle guides out on the top tube
