Aaron's B-side Build with Thru-Axle Wheelset


Thanks for the help on sizing, I'm glad I went with the XL.  The bike rides as good as it looks, I've been on it 5 days a week since building it up.  It transitions from kid-dropper-offer, to commuter, to upper campus trail slayer as gracefully as any bike ever could.  Best money I've ever spent!  I went with a budget build and the bike is still a flat out ripping wheelie machine!
