    Threw on the bear claw pedals on, like the look much better and added a 1mm spacer to the headset stack as the Azonic Headlock wasn't quite fully engaging. Just waiting on kickstand, may grab some vid today, chargin up GoPro now.

    Updated with parts list

    Thanks!

    If only we had a forest! May take some off-road vid this weekend, but the length of this beast makes it not ideal off-road and the uber long chainstays make it really hard to lift the front-end,

    Re: Purple Reign - GT Dyno Moto 9R Update 7/7 Done-ish pg5

    I took the bike out to Lake Hodges in Escondido for a little froading, I'm uploading a couple of short vids from there. There was some rattling I believe to be the chain, I may add a tensioner on the chainstay as the chain is very long and even though the tension is about perfect for a normal cruiser, there's so much chain it's not an ideal situation. If the chainline wasn't so good it would be a real problem. Maybe a Kore Reactor style like below, which I already have albeit it's in pieces need to round them up.

    I always build mine first and foremost as riders, though they may not always stay in the exact BO state.

    Here's another short video

    Found everything but the screws that hold it together, looks like another trip to Ace.

    I don't think my GT-Peace 29er would handle that trail any better than this bike does. AWSOME!

    Thanks!(had look up the reference there)

    Lake Hodges is pretty much a beginner/intermediate skill area, neglecting the climb up Bernardo Mtn and the South side but those bowls especially are really fun. It gets hot out there though. Didn't want anything too tough on a shakedown run. Looks like the bottom bracket did loosen up a bit as bearing etc settled in.

    I have an army green GT Peace SS 29er (and a blue multi that I converted SS) and was somewhat surprised at how well the Dyno did in comparison, gearing is much taller(44/22 vs 32/22), about equal weight, much longer wheelbase(48 vs 43-44ish) and much, much slacker head angle. You can really haul in the flats was the biggest upside.

    A minor rev update, pretty much there except to fill the cable guides, final cleanup, pick a spot for photos. Finally got the kickstand on, a tad short maybe vertically but even on a downhill slope doesn't fall over

    About the right length horizontally though

    Had the F.u.n.n. label on the handlebar blacked out for my Murdered Out Roadmaster build, hit the laser etch with some acetone, much better

    A couple of shots in the cleaned up state, tires looking new again ready for final pics and some sun, may do some of them at this location, greenest place around for color. Then a few off-road, and maybe another video.

    Re: Purple Reign GT Dyno Moto 29er Vids pg5, Cleanup shots pg6

    Out of the norm, the sun came out this morning making it hard to see, but I'm trying to mask the bare cable guides in the picture above on the downtube so I put in 2 cables to nowhere with ferrules on each end but I'm not sure it really does anything.

    Finally some sun at the coast, took her out for a bit of beach cruising after the surf sesh. Still need some off-road pics for the finished thread.
