Well finally got it all together and took it on a few MTB rides.
Engin Ti frame, Niner Carbon fork, S-Works cranks.
The geometry is amazing. It fits so well, and the handling, well well well, the handling is a total game changer. You may think that there isn't a whole lot you can do to get a big ole 29er to handle differently than all the production frames out there but lemme tell you that there is. This bike rides and handles so incredibly well, uphill or downhill.
