Classic indeed. Love seeing a couple of "fistful of post" frames lately. I know compact has been the way for a while now, but it just looks like business when the TT is straight and level.

Finally got around to taking a few more shots this weekend up above Olema / Point Reyes. This thing is really in its element on ranch roads and double track, and I was really thankful for that 42 tooth cog in the rear while climbing up from Tomales Bay to the Tam Watershed. Coulda used a third bottle cage...

And a couple detail shots: one of just the frame from Rick (with bonus big boy Supercrown), and the other a pretty accurate representation of the paint color, since some of you were asking.

Beautiful color and bike! Is Monkey Wrench paying you for this ad?


Who paints for Rick typically?

I keep telling myself a disc cross bike is in my future, but this is convincing me I could very well stick with rim brakes

Thanks for additional pics (and the bonus Hunter shop one)--what a great bike.
I got a couple Hunter T shirts for gifts for people this winter as an exercise in Hunter/California dreaming.

Keep the camera going when inspired!

Wow, so close to what my ideal setup would be. Does the 1x11 work well? Do you notice any cross chain problems?

The 1x setup works far better than I thought it would with a standard BB, and so much easier to keep the chain clean. Honestly, that alone is enough to give it a shot...

New tire day, just in time for the heat wave (100+ in SF!). The Nanos were getting a little tired and aren't worth a damn in the sand we deal with this time of year, so took a recommendation from the LBS and got the WTB Resolutes. Took them on a San Francisco terrain tour and can confirm they're MUCH better in the sand and almost everywhere else. Feel a little slower on the pavement but that could be a problem with the engine...
