I like that! Already have all the decals made for it, but I may have to place another order!So many bikes these days have a sticker that says made in China or designed in u.s.a.
This one should say designed in USA, made in Australia.
@OneHorsePower is the man with the ideas! They look great!Great idea!
Hope it works out well! Like it has been said on this RRB forum many times; it's one thing to plan / design a bike in your head, and another to actually put it together with hard parts and frame materials!Colour already picked out and I have it here in stock!
Been thinking long and hard about the headtube angle and reading that info you posted, going with what you said: 69-70 degrees, be a shame to go to all this effort and have it not 'work' properly just because I want a marginally shorter wheelbase!
First time lacing a wheel or first time doing a 48h 4x?Well, I got bored...
By the way, 48 spoke, 4 cross without a rim to copy, never done either before and got it right first attempt!
Thanks Chad! I think this was my 5th and 6th wheel, pretty happy with progress in that regard, I put off doing it for years, but I find it fun now!First time lacing a wheel or first time doing a 48h 4x?
Edit: I see where you said you did your first recently. A+ Good job on getting the valve hole thing right. Hard to keep off the wheel assembly once you get all the parts. My favorite part of a build.
They look sensational! I had to backtrack to see what the heat shrink was all about. Great idea and that looks awesome. Like the painted sidewalls too. Silver band kills the look of a black rim.
If you go black or red it is much cheaper, probably $.20 a spoke, the less common colours (yellow, white, blue, green, clear) around $.25 a spoke.Love the heat shrink tubing on the spokes BTW, seen colored spokes come back into style over the past decade, mostly in the BMX scene, and they tend to be pricey. How much would you say the tubing ran you per spoke? Also, I have seen the black ano'd spokes breaking easier at the bends compared to the stainless silver spokes, and this is a great way to get the color and the reliability! Thanks for the idea, will probably steal it from you at some point if you do not mind
Thanks OJ! I hope I am doing justice to the BACK40 name!You are moving at a good pace my friend! It's almost as if it was one of my builds! Haha! Those tolerances are tight at the bottom bracket. This bike is going to have a very "fat" look to it when it is done....which is always good!
Thanks Locojoe!Cool design. The build is looking good.
Thanks 1HP!, thanks for the cool idea with the heatshrink too, very cool!So much win already in this build !
Much cheaper! Black and red seem to be available in spools, but the others I was only able to find in 1,200mm lengths... (4 foot)Cool, sounds to be cheaper to use the heat shrink tubing rather than the colored spokes! Now to find long lengths, maybe spools of the stuff!

Those Nevegals measure out at 27", I am almost there!Curved seat tube, 69* head angle and square chainstay tubing? As a Canfield Brothers nimble 9 rider, I support these things. I love those wheels, but you gotta go 27.5 or 29 to fit in these days (Not my bike below, but mine's similar)
