I need to take some better pictures.

Here's mine. 4" travel, 425 chainstays, pretty normal aggro-XC geometry. I need a fork with more clearance, appropriate rear wheel, etc... but it's the end of the season so I wanted to get out on it and enjoy the fall.

Took these on the maiden voyage with my new Silent Cycles 29+ frame. The build is based primarily on the Jones geometry with a few small tweaks. Love it!

It was partially inspired by you and Devin and that sick bike!

I did 142x12. Kinda wishing I had gone wider in the back just because chainring clearance is stupid tight if you want a ring bigger than 28t or so. Then again, I don't think I need a ring bigger than 28 with these stupid huge wheels.

Braap is right! Just wish there was more gnar in Park City to hit with it.

This is what I have been riding all summer. Definitely by far the most fun bike I have ever had for sure no doubt! Ha. But seriously, I initially went back and forth a lot on whether I really do like the plus platform. There are definitely drawbacks, but there sure are a lot of pluses (heh heh).

Just picked up this ROS9 plus last week on a pretty good deal gave up on finding a frame when I stumbled onto thisone, loving it so far but already have an ROS9 setup SS that I really like made the decision real easy. came with 1x11 but riding SS style for the time being.

Lefty powered krampus at the top of reveille peak tx. Tim at two 6 labs really hooked me up with the lefty mod. All new internals and super nice. Makes the krampus a beast.
