Finally found me a Spot brand. Always wanted one and always wanted to try a 29er. Upgrades will be larger rotors and maybe I'll shorten the hoses a bit :roll: :oops:
Later on I'll build a SS specific wheelset from WI, Phil (they come in very nice colors now) or CK hubs.

Looks very similar to how my 29er SS build will be (once the frame a forks have been built! http://www.flickr.com/photos/edelbikes/ ... 926287084/) - I have the Phil Wood hubs and WI at the ready...

Thank you for sharing. Nice pictures, what have you planned for the build, colors, components etc?

I finally managed to get a CK SS wheelset and some nice Hope rotors. I have just been out on some quite fantastic trails in the northern part of Denmark.
The bike is very nice and I'm very impressed about what a 29" bike can do.

Svinkløv klitplantage, Slettestrand. There is, a very nice 20 km long and technical trail. Highly recommended.
