XS 29er for Chico, Calif.

 Seriously purple and very heavy duty, this - the smallest 29er I have ever built will see some punishing miles in the near future. Most of the tubing is from my ever diminishing stash of Easton NOS MTB tubes. Only the head tube and chain stays are not Easton.
 This is the one where I had to make the seat stay yoke myself as the supplier was out of stock for a really long time. It was a lot of machine work, not my forte but it turned out pretty nicely.
 This one is made for a Fox 100 mm shock and with the PF-30 BB it will also be able to run an eccentric for single speeding.
Here's the paint in the direct sun. It has some really nice blue metalflake.
