Strengths:    beautiful handcrafted frame; clean welds, good design, great geometry for SE riding.

Weaknesses:    powdercoating OK: silver is a tough color. No clear coat, not a big deal but my little hillbilly logo needs to be replaced soon. rear dropouts have a funny clearance issue with my derailleur hanger, so I have to unthread QR nut to remove rear wheel. Steve wasn't sure what happened with that.

Bottom Line:   
Four + years down the road I still love this bike. It has its quirks but handles amazingly well; I might jump up to a 100mm fork at some point but have changed almost nothing since I first built it in summer 2005. I love that it was built right in NC, I think that makes it ride better the closer it gets to home. Great simple XC hardtail frame, thanks Steve.

It appears to be pretty old as it looks to have been built for 7 speed, with 130mm spacing. It also as 1 inch head ... Read More »
