Just built up... 1st ride will be this weekend. Not happy with the white seatpost (carbon post on order). Will follow up with a ride report after the weekend. Not the greatest pics, but you get the idea.

- King HS
- Control Tech Estro 110x6 stem
- RaceFace Atlas bars
- Avid Elixir R brakes (185/185)
- X-9 Shifters
- XT Front Der
- X-9 Rear Der
- RaceFace Atlas crankset
- Shimano 540 Pedals
- FSA Post (soon to be replace)
- WTB Silverado Saddle
- Hope Pro II / Flow Wheels (32h, 14/15G spokes)
Current Tire Setup:
Ardent front, Fast Trak rear... Soon to be Eskar Control 2.3 front, Captain S-Works 2.2 rear

Nice build, I actually think the white seatpost looks unique....:blush:
Yeah, the white post is starting to grow on me. I've already got a carbon fiber post on its way though. Guess its good to have choices, eh? :D

how does your rack attach to the bed rail system? have the same truck, wondering where the bracket's came from.

It's an old Salsa Tooth Fairy that I've had forever. I think I got it from Universal Cycles.

So, is this bike replacing your Canzo?

I like mine...

...all except the fork, which took a dump after 5 months. Too bad I had it custom painted. Anyway, the SBM is a mighty steed... hope you're as happy with yours as I am with mine.

Gotta show mine as well!

I love my Big Mama! It handles the rooty and rocky New England trails great. This was a picture I took after the first ride. I was in the process of building a matching front wheel, but couldn't wait to give her a spin. I just need to put tons of miles on her now! ;)

Yes, in a way... Actually I had gotten rid of the Canzo a while back and was riding SS primarily for a while.
