Bitterroot Cycles 29er

Another ride on the proto....this time on one of our favorites, Blodgett trail. Chunkfest and tons of granite that requires slow speed skill set. And once again I feel really happy about this project, this bike. I think we've got a winner here and I'm always very surprised with the behavior of the bike and how smooth steel framed bikes feel. So stoked.

Proto build

Got the frame back from powder coat yesterday. Really like the matte clear paint and bead blast finish. Almost sparkles under sun light. 

Had a small group of locals stopping in around closing thirty I suppose. I avoided any beverages and started right in on the build. 44mm headtube reamer/facing. And cleaned out the paragon bb she'll too just to make sure. Nothing beats the sensation of a freshly tapped shell.

I'd say dave Norton did an exceptional job of building the proto. Without a proper frame jig or alignment table. Those will be coming very soon like as rector engineering is assisting with the new tools. Norton is gonna be stoked. A slight redishing of the rear wheel to get everything centered and installation of a fresh sram x1 kit, pike suspension fork and she's ready to rip.
