this is my first bike in 14 years. So I went with a custom 29er, after I rode his demo 29er. Its a local bike builder Norway Cycles. Tom Teesdale actually does the build. Its a 18" medium frame. its still currently in the build process, but i just got some pics so I thought I would post. I will post more pics as the bike progresses. It's being built out of ox plat.

Well I headed out to Iowa yesterday and picked up my frame from Tom. So today I just had to put her together. The bike weighed in at 25.7 lbs minus pedals. Not to bad for a Steel hardtail. When I upgrade the wheels and brakes I should shed a few more lbs.

Nice!!

Good upgrade, that Loop fork. I tested one and it impressed me with its plushness. Can you allready say something about the durability of that fork? If that's OK, they would be a real threat to Fox and RS.

I just installed last night so I cannot comment on its durability, but I had a WB magic before this, and I was extremely happy with so this should only be better
