Bob's bike/really nice monsoon season.
Below, as-brazed chainstay spear - there's over 2/3rds of a 32" rod of 1/16th" brass in that end.
I had to both flatten and dimple the chainstays for the Sram XO cranks to fit a 2.35" Panaracer Rampage for mud clearance and chainsuck prevention, which you do not have to do with an XT - FYI, fellow framebuilders.
She is 16+ but is still happy, really gimpy and F'ed up, but happy. Sadly, I think she will not be with us much longer, she has pretty much defined what you can get out of a dog - four times to Mexico alone as well as all over the Western USA and thousands upon thousands of miles of trails.
