Picked this beauty up for Finch Platte.

Full On-One/Planet X build.

Does not come with cat.

I will be building up the beauty for him over the weekend....should be great!

Will someone ELSE tell him WHY 180 cranks are a must for his 6'4" frame....? Sheesh!

Looks like an ISIS cat anyway. I only like Square Taper or Octolink cats.

Nice looking bike by the way.

Why 180s?

Why did you order a large frame? Why do you not buy pants that are too short? Why don't you buy size 10 shoes? Why does Olde English 800 come in 16 oz cans?

Nice bike. Maybe too nice. Stay outta the taqueria. Good job Z.

I picked up a sweet NOS 180mm XT M737 5 arm crankset from Jones Cycles on Ebay for $90. Put a Spot 32t ring on and saved the chainrings it came with for one of my geared bikes. The chainrings alone are worth a decent amount, and are much better than the newer 9spd rings Shimano are using now. Plus you can use the many available square taper BB's with it. Just a thought. BTW, very nice frame FP.
P.S. - there is a set on Ebay right now that ends about 6pm PST. Search with "180mm".

Bottle holder

make sure you put a special bottle holder on there for him. It's the only way to securely hold delicious hydrating microbrew.

Nice rig Gary, bring it to Canmore!

Don't listen to them Finch... 175's are fine. They just don't want to add a tooth to their ratio.

He can't have the ones I've got.

Not because I'm not giving them, but because that bike deserves better. Mine are old, dirty, and where the paint's not scuffed off, they're red. The bash guard is all bashed, and they might be twisted just a little.

I'd order up some XT 180's with a performance or supergo 20% off coupon.
