Gotta scrounge up some funds as well and get me a straight-steer QR. It's all going to feed my teenagers now.
    You don't need to go fancy CF. Just get a Surly or Salsa rigid fork. They've got enough clearance for 29+ tires. Other than weight, I don't feel much difference between a Karate Monkey fork and my (current) Niner carbon. Both stiff. This season, I might try out a 2.6" tire. 3" was a little porky for me. 2.4" felt much better, but a little more cush would help on some of the chunkier trails.

    Never posted this here, my most recent Zanc. Love this bike, couple great trails around here without too much climbing and not too many rocky descents. This bike is perfect.

    Thanks!!!

    All will be as planned once the chain stretches and he can remove a link so the wheel rides 1/2 through it's throw as is proper.

    I would have chosen some lower profile rims

    Did you notice the front 12mm thru?

    I like the deeper rims, carbon I'm assuming? I'm a big fan of carbon rims, so much fun to ride.

    I did not notice the 12mm axle, but that's super clean!

    Yeah - Lite Bicycle laced to Hopes - the 12mm did come out uber-clean, I figured out some cool tricks to put the disc where it should be - uni-crowns rule!

    Well I can happily talk about it, though in the end it wasn't right for me (49 stitches and a fractured shoulderblade were a good indicator...) and I ended up trading it to a forum member for the Rock Lobster which is now currently a victim of the thinning of my herd (see Classifieds, you know you want a Rock Lobster in your life).

    The bike was (and still is, I imagine) fantastic. Harry did an amazing job on the build and fit and everything came out great. On the trails it absolutely shredded. Really nice compliance all around and surprisingly so considering the lack of shocks. I think the slope of the TT and the width of the seatstays helped in that regard, as for the most part I could descend in the saddle without feeling every nuance of the trail. Build-wise the ENVE fork was great and had no problem taking whatever I threw at it, the HOPE hubs were dreamy (same for the HS/BB - and by dreamy I mean zero problems and total fluidity). If I lived in a different climate with a smaller population of rock gardens and 20% descents it would have been a lifetime rig for sure.

    I know Harry spends most of his torch-time on road rigs these days but he was excellent to work with for a MTB/VTT and totally killed it. Great attention to detail.

    Wow. Impressive. Love the color scheme. Is the rear 135 bolt on? (King?). When I get another custom SS built, I am going track ends for sure. EBB has been fine, but that just looks so simple and clean. Love it.

    Field's own words on Andrew's 29er

    The temptation to take Andrews 29er for a quick spin round the woods was huge - but that just wouldn’t be right, Instead we shouldered it to this beautiful spot being careful not to get his new bike muddy. The pedals left off just incase we got carried away.

    This 29er has been built to be a nimble, lightweight and zingy ride, perfect for covering miles quickly and efficiently. The tight rear triangle is built with Dedacciai tubes, and the front triangle from Reynolds 853. Paragon Polydrop dropouts with a 142/12mm bolt through insert take care of wheel holding duties at the back.

    The oversized 44 mm i.d head tube lets us fit the ENVE 29er tapered fork, making for a sharp agile bike. We protected all of the bosses and vulnerable places in stainless steel to keep this bike looking sharp for years to come, with a subtle ‘Field’ signature detail on the seat stay bridge.

    A subtle but sharp design finishing this build off, with crosses on the top tube fading away as they move further away from the business end of the ENVE Mtn fork.

    Seconded.

    The way the parallel tubes mirror the rear triangle just kills me.

    These are beautiful, especially that Field, I love that paint. I'm sort of surprised to see so few of these with dropper posts. For me on a rigid 29er, especially one with a lot of seat post showing for standover, the dropper is the perfect addition for rocky descents and the pumpy rollers we have on some of the flow-ish trails around here.
