    Its amazing

    I ordered the parts last weekend and I finally got the uni fully assembled and with a working disc brake yesterday

    It looks amazing. The pedals match the frame colour pretty well, to my slight surprise. I will try to post pictures in the next couple of days.

    Yesterday I went for a short ride and found it very easy and comfortable to freemount and ride around and up and down hills. I also found out that bails from a 29er end on the floor (not on the feet) much more often.

    I tried riding down a big grassy hill (where kids ski). To my surprise I actually made it down on the third or so attempt, albeit alowly.

    Just a friendly tip to anyone wanting to shorten the disc brake hose themselves: Put the olive on BEFORE you hammer in the insert (it does not fit later because the insert expands the hose).
