Wow, nice build. My question is what's going on with the seatpost clamp area? Is that some kind of dropper post?

Quick reply to all of the questions. First of all, thanks for the props - I really took my time with this build, carbon fork still on the wish list though. The saddle clamp area is just weird looking beacuse it's a Race Face Turbine post - the weirdness that you see is the angle adjustment. I do have a height-adjustable post on the way for Moab rock-crawling sessions. Some of you got it right about the gizmo on the headtube - it's a Hopey steering damper. Believe me, when you have 30-40 pounds of gear strapped to your bike it helps keep the wheel from wandering and helps on the climbs.

This page loaded and I let out an audible "Whoa!"

Cool bike!

I plainly forgot about steering dampers - now I want to see if they have any limitations with carbon steer tubes.
