I took the plunge, and decided to build a chinese carbon fiber framed 29’er Monstercross bike to compete in rough gravel races, such as Gold Rush in Spearfish, SD.
I choose the Flyxii FR-216 frame and matching carbon fork with BSA bottom bracket.
Everything is made in China these days. This came from Flyxii, 13 days order to door. No shit. I’m impressed.
I received a set of WTB i23 wheels from Velo Mine the same day. This bike will ride on tubeless WTB Nano TCS tires, with a SRAM X7 setup with Apex shifters and BB7 brakes, Salsa cockpit, and Rotor Q Rings.
