Street 26"

  



Thats a thicker plate than I have used in the past, and its definitely a lot stiffer than the 1/8".

That'll do pig

No dropped chain: The Ti narrow wide and the 55 fork are winners
 Rolled up and down stairs, and did a few miles of washed out (rooty) trails. The fork has an inch less travel than the 66 that I was using, but I don't know if I felt a difference.

20" Mmkay






 Mackey's frame. 22mm stays are much, much stronger than 19mm.

Titanium narrow wide



 Joe Rogers did the aluminum parts for my sliders a few years ago. He also makes custom knives and sprockets like the Ti one here. With all the local trails washed out, looks like I'll have to settle for the stair cases up in Hunstville to test out the (NOS) fork on the Stout/Kona. There are some newer trails up in Austin that are really rocky and technical that are way more fun on a long travel/geared bike.
 Lots of welding, and very little time to powdercoat anything as its been 200% precipitation for the past month.
