Orange 29er

year-round laidback recovery bike built w/ the best bang for your dollar mentality to just keep me saddled-up outside of any excuses (neck pain, sore shoulders, leg fatigue, road conditions, weather permitting, & general laziness after centuries)

Frame:
Gravity G29 SS. 15.5, 6061-T6, oversized downtube,rigid

Fork/Headset:
OEM . . . heavy 4130 w/ 203mm Shimano disc adapter// CaneCreek VP-A42E, sealed & smooth!

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
OEM . . . 175// Phil re-packed, low-grade but smooth for now

Pedals:
classic tried & true Ringle ZuZu's w/ quality generic hold fast straps, full width Velcro superglue grip

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
OEM . . . singlespeed uphill mashing 18t/33t // awesome KMC X10-SL Ti-Nitrate coated

Derailleurs/Shifters:
I'm not a doctor

Handlebars/Stem:
OEM . . . 660mm, 6061-T6, classic Oury chocolate grips// 40mm Hussefelt, 0deg 31.8clamp, 1-1/8 threadless

Saddle/Seatpost:
generic nice & springy tioga spyder// low-grade generic 27.2mm, single-bolt 6061-T6, 450mm cut down

Brakes:
front: when BB7's modulation isn't enough - hydraulic Shimano XT M785, 203mm overkill. rear: OEM 160mm mechanical (for singletrack drag), modified BB7 metallics

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
OEM . . . WTB 29in x 32 spoke, modified Stans tubeless// tried & true sealed Formula disc// winter tires set-up coming

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
OEM . . . WTB 29in x 32 spoke, modified Stans tubeless// tried & true sealed Formula disc, quality generic chain tensioners// winter tires set-up coming

Accessories:
8 hipster stickers, LE Bird Cage bottle mount, weekend bikepacking essentials coming

More Info:
32.8lb w/ all accessories mounted. negitives: 29ers lack technical terrain, OEM fork is garbage, 'manual' dropper post annoyance, crankset & bottom bracket merely get the job done usually daydream of making rear cog fixed one day
