Jeff’s Nature Boy Bike Check

Since late June my NB has sat dormant, because I stole the wheels off of it for my new road bike.  I've been missing it and last night I was finally able to get her back together.  Here is the bike in it's current state.

parts box 004
Nature Boy prototype frame and fork, Blackened Blue color

parts box 006
I carry two cogs 16,17 on the rear cassette and plan on adding an 18 as well.  I'm pretty confident all three will have decent enough chainline to be usable

parts box 007
Velocity A23 rims to 105 hubs, three cross rear, two cross front, WTB All Terainasaurus tires 38c front, 32c rear

parts box 008
Tektro brakes, the same that come on the completes

parts box 010
Ritchey post and Brooks B-17 Narrow saddle.  I like to customize my stuff so I added some speed holes with a leather hole punch

parts box 011
White proto fork

parts box 012
Bontrager Buzz Kills, I love these dampers and have them on a number of bikes, including my MTB's.  I totally think they work

parts box 014
Thomson stem, ITM carbon wrapped alloy bar

parts box 015
105 front, two cross


I love this bike so much, can't wait to ride some dirt this weekend.
