It may come as no surprise this isn’t my first bike build, but there were a lot of firsts for me here. This is my first build off entry, and while it might me warm n fuzzy feeling to get a bunch of votes, it ultimately doesn’t matter because it’s already a winner with me. This is my best mountain bike, and I will ride it more.
It was built from scratch to suit my needs and desires. Enjoy some pics of it in a natural, post-ride, dusty look.

Sorry they’re upside down. The rrb site is flipping my images, so I go edit the image upside down and then it loads regular, which is upside down. So I revert image and try to upload again and then it flips it. I’m not doing this all day so if the site wants them upside down then flip your screen over. Enjoy.

Great scratch-built trail tamer! I'm sure the ride is comfy with all that curvy steel tubing and that front fork. Nicely done :41:

One of the best engineered rides I have seen on RRB!
Killer design and artistic execution!
Those criss cross multi level top bars / seat stays flow so well!
Congrats!

This bike just stands out to me.
I especially like the ‘uneven’ seatstays, how the top tube and lower cross tube continue down to the rear dropouts.

Can you post a rear view that highlights them?
