    Thanks! The fenders are Planet Bike 29ers, and were pretty easy to set up on a 650b x 47 wheel and tire. I just had to make the stays a little "swoopy" to clear the brake caliper.

    It's a spry bike unloaded, but a good little packhorse too. Here it is with front panniers holding ten cans of spray paint, a bottle of Simple Green, and a quart of milk, plus a typical basket load.

    So does a "typical basket load" always include a 12-pack of Bell's Oberon?

    In addition... What ARE you going to do with 10 cans of spray paint?! Inquiring minds need to know.

    Not always, but it is the basket's highest calling.

The wheelset that came with the bike got moved to my old bike, and now this has my Easton tubeless setup with new Schwalbe G-Ones. I also moved over the cassette from my old bike which is 11-36, so the new bike has the gearing that I've gotten used to.

    What ended up forcing me to wait until today to finish was waiting for the Easton QR>Thru Axle conversion kit. Glad I had the foresight to buy a convertible wheelset! I also got a thru axle>QR converter for the generic wheelset that came with the bike, which is now mounted on my old bike.


    Nice bike! Congrats. My brother owns one and he loves it.
