    BonJons are 35s, right? Look good on there.. I rode it with a pair of EL versions of those and some 38s. Both rode great to me - though the 38s got tight for any off-road work.

    I like the way that PMP looks on there too.

    Finally finished the Kirk 29er today - or more accurately, I finally took it in to the have brakes bled..



    Build is full XTR with low miles, 28/38 up front. Bontrager bars/stem and saddle. Deda post. DT Swiss wheels Dave sold me with the bike. SID fork w lock-out. CK headset.

    Going to ride it like this for a bit, but I think long term it's going to get some flared drop bars and R8020 shifters to be pressed into gravel duty. I have a Whiskey carbon fork for it too...

    That looks great as it is. To be honest, flared gravel drop bars would ruin this bike for me. Ride it for what it was built for.

    Thanks Lionel - this is mostly your group from the S-Works - but with a different crankset to get taller gears..

    I normally don't like white housing either - I had some though, and it seemed like a nice tie-in for the decals and other accents.

    Thanks - with a pending move (trying to anyway) to a place with access to true XC trails, it may never see the gravel conversion - ideally I'd just get a gravel bike and leave this for XC anyway - preferably a Onesto like Dave built himself :)

    Been getting the miles in on this bike finally after owning it for 2 years.

    Also, a great podcast on Dave from the Red Kite Prayer - The Pull

    That bike gets me every time. The only thing I’d do is change the wheels to Hyperons, the tyres to Veloflex Vlaanderens and the saddle to my SQlab. Gorgeous.

    Feel free to send me a pair of Hyperons with Vlaanderens mounted, and I'll take some pics ;)
