It does look very heavy- how do you get to the top of the hills you ride down?

And I thought a 203mm on my 29er was going to look big!

Building mine up over the weekend.

Cheers dmacuni for your review - I've also got my MT2 and I'm going to head to my local engineering store tomorrow to pick up some shorter & smaller headed screws and plastic cable clips if I can't find any lying around.

If the rim wasn't bent before you built the wheel, then the problem is with the build. Take it to your LBS and let them retension the wheel, the steep dishing on the Oracle hub is hard to true and keep true.

What frame is that?

Rim was buckled before I built it up. I was hoping I'd be able to true out the buckle but its too far gone. New rim time

Its the Oracle frame

Looks like a de-stickered Nimbus Oracle with those brazed on cable bosses and curved crown.

That Gazzi looks very tight in there

Yeah its the Oracle, not sure why it came without stickers but Im glad it did. Not keen on the colour scheme of the Oracle.
Haha yeah it is tight, its actually touching in the photo because of the buckled rim

You got a frame without the parts? That's not fair! In the states we can only completes until the next shipment

So, is the frame wide enough for a Gazz 3"?

Bummer about the rim, they aren't cheap.

The frame is only 600g odd so not very heavy, is it not cost effective to order one from the UK?

Dude, don't talk bad about my Oracle's color scheme.

My Oracle is (Louisville) Cardinal red.

My KH 36er is (Kentucky) Wildcat blue.

My dual hole (165/137) KH Moment cranks are nearly as heavy (586g) as the Oracle frame! I will be getting some single hole 150mm cranks when Kris drops his new line of Moments.

Which is why my new ride isn't sporting any Moments, bomb proof but I don't do anything needing that amount of strength!

I like the colour stickers just find the rim a bit in your face, Black rim with coloured nipples FTW!

Exactly Daniel, Dimitri modified the Triton design after my remark 2 years ago
