This is Chad's first 29er. He bought a new frame from Mr. Quiring and the build kit from his lbs, Monkey Wrench Cycles.

- Thomson stem/post,
- Salsa bars,
- Avid bb 7 brakes,
- wheels are WTB laser disc with xt hubs, built by Eric at Monkey Wrench.
Ride Report: Chad has it dialed in fairly well.
The last picture is of a little piece that you install in the horizontal dropouts to keep the axle straight. They were around $20, but well worth it.
