    There is still a pullout at chutes. Might be able to utilize that.

    I’ve done plenty of 12hr races, 200+ miles races in every condition. Everesting on a MTB was the most difficult single day event I’ve ever done.

    Work in progress...
    I was able to find my wife a Marlin 7 last month at Trek Bicycle Henderson Nevada. It just happens that she rides the same bike size as me...? Anyways, I just grin ear to ear on that thing when I get a chance to ride it. The 29ers on the medium frame are fairly capable off road and the super light front end makes me think "Wheelies." Super fun all around bike. 1,000 dollars well spent. The folks at Trek Henderson Nevada were great to deal with also. I traded in a DiamondBack and also bought a bike hauler. But anyways, did I mention that Marlin 7 makes me feel like a 4th grader on Christmas morning that just got a BMX?

    The Marlin 6 was fun, but I will say I enjoy the Marlin7 even more! I added an oval chainring when I installed the Advent X drivetrain, and on the powerstroke of the pedals in a climbing gear the front end almost always wants to come off the ground. A fantastic "budget" hardtail for sure. I plan to keep mine hanging on the wall even after I pickup a full squish!

    Gotta second PNW Components! I'm running one of their "budget" dropper posts and love it. Just added their Range bars and stem as well and they are great quality.

    I hear nothing but killer things about their Loam Lever as well. I don't have it, but it's on the list!

    Just finished putting the new gravel bike together. Still waiting on a few pieces. Mainly a new wheelset and cassette.

    Unfortunately in the midst of a pretty brutal snowstorm right now so likely won't be able to get out until the weekend.

    I wanted something that I could get the same fit as my road bike and feel more like my road bike. The 3T fit the bill. I had a Kona Rove NRB that I've raced a ton but it never felt like a race bike.

    Can't wait to get this thing out in the sun. The blue is nice. Not too bright but I think will look real nice in natural light.

    not enough.
    I've heard good things about their droppers. No experience with them though. Might be worth a shot when I upgrade my dropper on one of my bikes. But I do LOVE their loam levers. hands down best lever out there, IMO. I highly recommend it for everyone. it's lightweight, minimalistic, and actually very pretty. colors are very nice on it. the soft rubber is very nice to use over a hard plastic or metal. Got the girlfriend converted from wolftooth over to loam and she was like, "what have I been doing with my old lever?!" lol.


    ooooh. very pretty bike. those 3Ts have some great looking bikes.

    This seems to be the standard review on the Loam Lever!

    When I bought my PNW Ridge dropper post I had a front derailleur, so I had to go with the PNW Puget 2x lever. I'm running a 1x setup now, and the Puget is still working great, but I do plan on a Loam lever in Cement to match my bike and my truck eventually
