      Figured I'd make a new thread for this. We were discussing slack steel hardtail options in another thread. I decided I had amassed enough parts to warrant a new bike build. It had to be a 26er because I had wheels and a fork for that size. I also had brakes, most of a drivetrain, and some cranks. This was good timing because I needed another loaner bike. Plus, I was wanting a DJ type build to mess around with at Big Marsh Bike Park.
      Luckily my fork was a Factory Talas (travel adjust on the fly). I can go from park mode 120mm to trail 150mm real quick. At 120mm this frame has a 66 headtube angle, around or below 65 in 150mm. I was also pleasantly surprised to find a water bottle cage mount as well, total bonus. Highly recommend this frame for multi purpose use! It is a ton of fun to ride and it is surprisingly light. General specs are:

*2017 Ns Clash large frame in black
*NOS Bontrager Rhythm Elite wheels from a 2013 Remedy setup tubeless with 2.4 Trail Kings
*Fox Talas 34 120-150mm Factory fork
*Avid XO carbon trail brakes
*Raceface evolve cranks
*10spd Shimano SLX setup 1X
*760mm bars and 35mm stem

That is a great looking build.   If you ride it more than a loaner, a dropper might be a nice add down the road.
Well done.

If you are getting advice from me, I would strongly suggest you get a second opinion.

Thanks! And my thoughts exactly about the dropper. Although, I may have to justify that one to myself. If it DID have a dropper on it, I would probably ride it more haha. Once you drop, you don't go back.
