My new Specialized Rockhopper SL 29er Single speed.

Finally finished off my new Specialized Rockhopper SL 29er single speed. Still have to get a better rear brake and sort out gearing but the first ride was great.

I laced some of Velocity's new Blunt SL tubeless rims to XT hubs with DT Swiss competition Spokes for the wheel and they came up a treat.

Forks are Suntour Epicon. Not very widely know in MTB circles but seem nice and plush from first impression.
I will have to start the weight weeny bit soon I guess to drop it below 10 kg.
