    White white. Sorry, the greased lens effect (aka iPhone in a sweaty pocket) makes it look all dreamy and blue. On the disc brake thing we can agree to disagree. Life without a little sin is humdrum.



    @boots2000 nailed it. We are lucky to have effbuilders like Paul. He is a pretty exclusive club of folks who seem to be equally capable of building TIG-welded Aluminum tandem 29ers, uber-custom lugged + fillet brazed 650b drop bar grocery getters, and "run of the mill" World Cup worthy CX race bikes.

    I wanted to give myself the option of a carbon fork, should I want one at some point. The rake and a-c of this fork match that of the Seven Matador. That said, I've found that I really enjoy riding that bike with a front bag, and the steel fork rides really nicely...

    I love this bike
    Just found this pic of my frameset in the proper seafoam. I should send it back to Paul to have it refinished, right? I moved the 9000/6800 groupset and T11 wheels to my MX Leader, so now it's just sitting.

    I am! Here's a very brief report from a different forum I wrote up:

    So my friend Adam and I went down to Oaxaca a few weeks back to ride the Bikepacking Oaxaca route and had planned on riding back to Oaxaca city from Mazunte (where the route ended). A few factors contributed to us not doing the return ride:

    Adam had a fucked up flu when we got to Oaxaca (shivering in bed the day before we were supposed to get on our bikes), which was held at bay by the miracle of Mexican medicine, but that came back with a firey vengeance within an hour of us arriving in Mazunte
    I crashed on our third day riding and ended up with both my everything cages exploded and having to wear one of my drybags as a backpack for the remaining 80 miles of that day
    We greatly underestimated the amount of climbing it would be to get back. Oaxaca City sits at around 5000ft, Mazunte is at sealevel, and the mountains in between peak at around 8000ft. For reference, our third day started at 6500ft and ended at the beach. It took us 7 hours to descend to about sealevel over the course of 30 miles or so and we gained 5000ft over the course of that day, descending 11,000

    That all said, the place is unbelievable for cycling and camping and eating and taking mushrooms in the mountains and seeing beautiful sunsets.

    So, instead of riding back, we rented a car and resolved to spend some more time in a couple of cities (San Jose del Pacifico and Teotitlan), doing day rides and enjoying the locale.


























    I've got a bunch more non-cycling pics too, but this is just what I copied from the other site.

    Cool! Sounds like a great adventure, even or especially with the illness and crash. Hope everything and everyone is well mended.

    That agave is huge! We had one that big in our yard in AZ but it was sitting on an irrigation dripper and dosing itself continually. The one in your photo looks 100$ nature-made. And huge.

    It was SO much fun, even with the setbacks. If anything, they added to the adventure.

    Jumping between the high desert and high altitude saw all kinds of agave plants. Pretty sure that one (and the other gigantic agave plants up high) were all natural. They were comparatively small in the desert, but as we kept climbing they kept getting more and more gigantic.
