16.5 is awesome! That's like track bike tolerances with the tire and seattube, looks hot. My SS29 is 17.5 in the middle of Paragon sliders. How do you like that hardware? I'm not sure the brass knobs help in the case you dont have a tool to bust loose the hexagon nut if it's on real tight on the trail. I've had a problem a couple times this summer with that (using the old hardware, but set up just like yours).
It's great to see a Waltworks, very race and built by a racer!
It has been ready for quite some time. Walt just mailed it yesterday as we have been waiting on Fox to build and ship the fork, but they are really backed up--Walt ordered it over a month ago.
Anyway, he sent everything but the fork and now I'm waiting for everything to show up. The fork will follow on it's own--hopefully soon.
I shall post images when it is built up.
