tbt 2015: my own 29plus

I built this bike for myself to try some new things and to allow some adjustable geometry. For one it has a PF30 BB shell so i can use it as a singlespeed, Rohloff, or with a regular rear derailleur but the cooler part is one can raise or lower the BB height by rotating the EBB in the shell. It’s not a ton of throw but it did make a difference when I would swap between 27.5+ and 29+” wheelsets. The reach is short so I could use drop bars with a short stem or flat bars and a longer stem. This bike took me on my trip around Lake Tahoe on the inaugural Bones to Blue bikepacking race in 2017, among other trips and local rides. It’s still alive but now resides in Colorado.
