the new rig. . .

I have yet to get back on the mountain bike since VQ and mostly because my Orbea Alma 29er still has a busted bottom bracket, cracked headset, etc, etc. It is time for that frame tor rest and I am SO STOKED to be rockin my new frame!!!


Rolling big wheels with just a tad squish in the back and titanium tubes is just about the best of all wolds for durability and all day jibbability in my mind. I was looking at a ton of frames and I believe the Mooto X should be a great balance for endurance rides, adventure races and even some cross country races if I find myself at the starting line.... My idea was to turn the Alma into a single speed and build this up with some white highlights like some of this
and this
and this
however, seeing that I really didn't have the $ to even get the frame in the first place it looks like I will be moving over the parts and just swapping frames....for now. Building this baby up should be just as fun as riding it ;-)
