Well as some of you may know, I really only ride trails. It's a full time job for me digging and building trails so why not treat yourself with the best equipment? This is going to be a build progression thread. Currently have a custom Laird Frame being built and hopefully will be done in about 2 more weeks. Here's some of the geometry of the frame, of course with Laird there's more customization to the frame than just this:
Head Tube 74°
Rear End Length 14”
Seat Tube Angle 71°
BB Height 11.70
Standover Height 9”

Parts List:
Laird Frame

Mutiny Manroids
Mutiny Wands v3
Mutiny Headset
Mutiny Frontload
Mutiny Octad 30t
Mutiny Cinch v2 Cranks
Mutiny 22mm BB

ODI grips and barends

Fly Manual Brake

Front Wheel:
Profile mini
Odyssey 7K
Kenda Tire

Rear Wheel:
Stolen Revolver
Stolen Wheel
Kenda Tire

Also I leave for Marines bootcamp at the end of January so I'm going to try to build it all up before then but if I can't sell my Colony then I'll build the new one up after boot when I'm making money again.

It was a very hard decision between raw and black. I love the weld heat marks but I've had a lot of raw frames already and never a black so I figured why not

I won't judge you for crying, I shed a tear when I saw the FedEx man walk up my driveway with the box

I'm keeping it pretty basic color wise. I've always had crazy color bikes so I'm doing a black out theme (minus seat). I'm debating if I want to put a headtube sticker on it or not...

Don't black it out man...
Pretty soon you'll have gum tires, 4 pegs and a coaster

Back when I used to grind shit I used to run 4 pegs. I'm ambidextrous so both felt natural. But those were dark times, "street"
