    How do you like this ritchey combo ? Is there a way to hold the garmin upfront with it ?

    Love it, my second one. Don't know if it would be centered, the flats have a slight curve to them.

    I am talking about a hole with a screw that you have on most of the integrated stem/bar where you can fit a garmin holder that comes out in front of the bar.

    I don't think the Ritchey Monocurve has the mounting holes, but I think the Solostreem does. Looking at the specs I think I'd love this setup.

    I'm on a ride with a guy using them right now and can confirm they have the accessory mount.

    The prism paint on Nate's new personal ride is crazy cool, photos don't do it justice.

    Why do people feel the need to list all of their bikes in their signature?

    So awesome Nate. Is this by chance for yourself, looks like about your size, but it's hard to tell from the interweb-only perspective. Can you say annything more about the design choices, i.e., why the short front center and low bb, etc.?

    Thanks Andy! Yes it is. Being 5'7" twenty niners are a tough fit. A 650b would be ideal but most of the trails here are fast and flowy, so the bigger wheels are definitely faster. Every stock size felt like Iwas higher of of the ground and the front to center being so long made the tire plow through the turns. Pretty bad especially in the loose stuff. So I thought what if I could have the same crank height, tire contact points as a 650b but with the big wheel advantages. After some designing I figured out the geometry that matches the 650b wheelbase and crank height without any toe overlap and no pedal striking especially through minor rock gardens. The best part has been the flickable handling dsspite the bigger wheels. The front end is very low beacause of my fit and really puts the weight on that front tires contact patch. That with the lower BB drop it rails turns! I have such a need for a big saddle to bar drop that I used a straight steerer fork fearing that a tapered steerer would not have the room for a stem to clamp onto to! The short wheelbase helps with the low BB over rollers as well for crank strike. Kinda like a small truck going over a hump compared to a tractor trailer that hits in the middle. This by far has been the single most effective design for myself!

    Whoa, sounds like a great ride! Thanks for the detailed Nate!

    I take it that as an XC machine you're forgoing a dropper post. Any reason not to do one of your ISP deals?
