cant remember but is it a bad idea to run a shadow halflink and 8t driver?
I'm building a bike for my son and he picked the shadow out of my parts bin
I also have a KMC 710sl to use but I'm trying to let him do this all by himself

I'm a lucky Dad. He's a good kid. He outgrew his 16" and I had this old flatland frame here. So we decided it would be better just to build a bike up and use quality 20" parts so later all we need to do is buy a new frame. This one has an 18" tt so it should fit him pretty well. We'll keep the seat low and should have no problems
Here's how it looks so far. Had to spend a little extra for some smaller parts for him, but he's done all the work himself. I just go back and tighten stuff down properly and make sure it's all lined up how it needs to be

And need to figure out what to lace his new hubset to. Looking at Primo 7 series or maybe Birdcage front Ribcage rear

bike looks great! like broken said, do bird cage front and rear, theyre pretty damn strong, and the saved weight should help him a bit since hes pretty young

Just get him some sun envys they're cheaper and no way he'll break em. You could get him nitrous rings and they'd be fine tbh, and they're pretty much just as light.
