Pony Rustler (no good can come of this)

This bike is destined to hate me.

Looks like a good bike for getting into too much trouble. Is that a 28T chainring with Eagle? For riding up drops?

It's a 30T. I repurposed the FSA crankset from my Retrotec single speed. I had a spare XX1 crank with 175mm arms laying about so I put that on the SS. Long arms on the Retrotec might even prove beneficial due to leverage. The FSA crank has 170mm arms which is my typical go-to length. I'm hoping that I can finally clear the steep section on my reverse Pine Mountain loop with this gearing!

Whoa, good luck! Traction certainly won't be lacking with this setup!

I just ordered an MRP Ramp Cartridge for it. Because it works so well in the Yari on my Woodsmoke. And because "more orange!".

Heading to Soquel Demonstration this weekend to hit the 15 minute flow trail. Sooooo stoked. I'll post some pics.

I knew it was coming. Took a corner on Coastview Trail a little too hot. Over the bars. Broken right brake lever. Second ride. Had to pilfer the lever from my Fourstroke to get her up and running for tomorrow's session. Need to tame this Pony.

Ended up at Rockville today. Over the bars twice. Broken saddle. I'm either doing it very right or very wrong. Either way, I need to get back there soon.
