Eventually I might add a brake. But for now I'm enjoying its current state that would make any weight weenie proud.

So you are the one who bought the Scott Wallis seatbase?! I wanted it soo bad. I have to watch the forums more often I guess

Awesome looking uni by the way. It looks like it's the perfect setup for XC races!

Thanks! My former place of employment will pay for any race fees so long as I promote their facilities after the race. So the long term plan is to enter cycloscross races and XC races in my area. Gotta get in shape first though.

Built a tubeless 29" wheel for my Triton frame. I plan to use it to commute about 10 miles to school over the course of the next year on both concrete and dirt paths. Maybe I'll include some light XC and some bike polo if I have time. Eventually I want to use it for racing, but if you've followed my recent posts, I'm not having much luck there.

Specs:
Impact Naomi foam and cover
Scott Wallis CF base
Thompson Elite seatpost
custom Triton 26/29 frame
Specialized S-Works Renegade tire 29x1.95
Purple Velocity Blunt SL rim
Purple DT alloy nipples
Black DT Comp spokes
Purple Deity presta valve cap
Black cromo Mad4One hub
Purple Mad4One ergal aluminum light race/road cranks 125mm (352g)
Red Twenty6 Predators with Ti axle and purple pins








Big thanks to Marco for superior customer service. Mad4One is awesome!

The fatty is done. It took my LBS 4 days to build the wheel (the spoke length was tricky), it took me 2 hours to get the damn rim tape to stay in place, and took my LBS another 3 hours to install the brake (the rotor is still untrue, but I don't even hear the slight rubbing, so it doesn't bother me). After all this, I took her on a ride and it was WONDERFUL. I felt like I had shocks on my uni! A review will follow, but for now, here are the specs and some pictures.

Triton Triple Muni frame 24/26/29
Deity purple seat post clamp
Scott Wallis CF base with Impact Naomi foam and cover
Surly Marge Lite 26'' rim with Surly Light Tube and Surly Marge Lite rim tape (plus duct tape for design)
Origin8 Devist8er Ultralight Tire 26x4.0''
DT Comp spokes, black
DT purple alloy nipples
Deity purple presta valve cap
Mad4One black CroMo hub 32H
MountainUni Brake Kit with purple chainring bolts
Twenty6 Predator Ti-axle pedals with black traction pins
Hope Tech 3 X2 disc brake, purple, front right lever

TOTAL WEIGHT: 13 pounds 12 oz. (6.23 kg)

The mountainuni set-up and the color (and the allowance for the purple chainring bolts).

Is the weight savings you get from riding with no bearing caps worth it?

Or just some really extremely epic wheelwalking stunts.

Well, I was in the process of packing my uni for some travels, hence, no bearing cups. I actually ride this wheel now, I like the green better, and the koxx 140s more too.

It's 4.5kg.

Amazing weld quality!

I've been a metal model maker/ fabricator for over 35 years, and have worked with some talented craftsmen, but I have NEVER seen better welding than what's on the Triton frames. Pure artwork!
