See Spot Run

While I haven't had the opportunity to feel real geared steel between my legs yet I picked up this Spot Longboard 9 frame from a buddy that I am going to go weight weenie on it as a 1x9.

The quandary I face now is that I don't need two hard tails, or three for that matter when you include the Qball so I might stick to my original plan with a slight deviation, sell the Qball and instead of getting a Van Dessel WTF for Monster Crosser fetish use the cash to build the Spot up.  Of course, I could just say eF it and transfer everything off the diSSent to Longboard.  That would be cheaper and I could always keep the diSSent around for another build later down the road.  

Decisions, decisions.

You need "cycle" therapy.

Sell that Longboard and it's long ass chainstays. ;)

Chainstays are as long as the Kona. 17.5 inches from center of cranks to center of the drops which is the same as the Qball if the wheel is seated in the middle of the drops. We'll see.

Mark, can we get a photo of your entire bicycle collection. Then we'll decide if you need "cycle" therapy...
