Bloodstock currently in my stable.... 

1st time I've taken both bikes out at the same time. The kloud now has Crewkerz carbon forks, Crewkerz 145mm stem and Clean bars since the photo.

Taking a redo on my hex, that paint was BRUTAL. Paid someon $50 to strip it, wasn’t even a good job- had to take 000 steel wool and much time with an exacto knife to get al the little chips out of the welds... frame feels much lighter, doesn’t show it on the scale. Looking forward to riding it again!!

 

 

whats up with the new model hex- different geo? 5mm longer wheelbase all I could see?

Another edit...I  think I have to change from 22-17 to 20-15/16... what should I go for? Can’t get the chainring to clear from carving into frame without putting all 3 spacers on drive side w these slx cranks- which I fear will lead to a premature bb death...

Another edit...I  think I have to change from 22-17 to 20-15/16... 15 would be well heavy. what should I go for? Can’t get the chainring to clear from carving into frame without putting all 3 spacers on drive side w these slx cranks- which I fear will lead to a premature bb death... Try a DH bb? They have extra long cups for their 83mm size. Well at least the Saint ones do. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=saint+DH+bb&hl=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiWvbbNi7zXAhVD2qQKHYanBhgQ_AUICigB&biw=1283&bih=716#imgrc=eJ6hy6WR5C-Z6M:

Cheers... yeah I’ve had a black saddle on order forever and just came in... big fat one, could save major weight there but i like sitting.  Both my bikes would be ideally all silver / black... but a green rim, blue hub, things i had no choice as they were a good deal/the only option at the time... that spark rim came from Germany, absolutely amazing wheel w pro4 hub.. arcade fork and through axle makes me not want to ride all my qr bikes.

 

yesterdays sunset thrown in there... welcome to Southern California, every day in the winter.. inspired is overdue for a trip here.
