Wee update to my Kilauea. Replaced the rigid fork for a FoxFloat 100RL and it handles well, guess i'm not as hard as i thought i was :D Changed the stem to a Deus and the wheels are Hope Pro2/717s'. Its being used as my main bike so i've got rid of the SS setup and now run it 1x9 which i find is all i need. Replaced the rear hayes hfx9xc with a shimano LX as i got a bit excited whilst fiddling with the caliper and knackered it. overall i'm loving its new incarnation, just gets better and better.

Nice rig haggis 8)

Could you make a side shot, so I could see how the geometry looks with a Fox 100mm fork? What size is the Kilauea - 19"?

cheers

Whats the front ring teeth No? Also don't you find U drop off the chain a lot without a bash guard? I always put a bash on as I find the chain tends to fly off on the rough stuff!

And while you're at it, could you give me a bottom bracket to saddle rail measurement? I'm riding a 20" Kilauea and I'm wondering if my next one should be a 19".
