Picked up the frame at Velo Cult in Portland. This is a low-trail dirt rando. Room for 26x2.15" tires with fenders. Billed as Enduro All Road. This will be my all road and trail tourig bike.
Got the frame in May, didn't get it all built until August 25.

Put the RTPs back on. As usual I struggled until I put on new rim tape. So from now on always replace the rim tape when swapping tires with tubeless.
Put on these Catalyst pedals
Chain and Cassette
Was still shifting fine on the Outback tour. 5600 miles on the old ones.
New rear tire
I got 2720 miles on the rear Humptulip Ridge before the center tread was worn down. I could have got more but changed it for the CRGA
Humptulips for the Ravn
These should be fun.
Installed them myself. Genuine TRP replacements.
Sinewave Beacon light
I had planned this light for the Ravn since the beginning. It’s symmetrical beam make it better suited for off road. We shall see.
RTP tires back on Ravn
I got one new Rat Trap Pass with endurance casing. I meant to get two but only got one. So I put on one of the original RTP tires I had, which is still like new. Had to use a tube though which I may be able to take out later. The new tire went on the back.
Cassette and chain
Getting ready for a trip south.
Short travel. See how it goes.
