tire and rim?

Is that a 240 on stock rim? That's what I'm running

To get the rake you wanted, did you increase the angle of the neck?
What kind of seat did you use? Better be a highly piled soft one to soak up the bumps.
Were there any stress studies done to see if the connection points for the stiffener rod could take the abuse and not fail?
Other than these, looks good; but be careful.

Nice work. Glad to see you got it done, there was a lot that bashed the idea. Good job, bike looks great!

Nice to see someone do a hardtail. Why not just swap the shock with a solid rod? And rebar?

Bike looks so good it even makes that stock orange paint look good.

Looks good, how does it ride with the raked front and the wide tire?
