Happy times, yeah. Build "just" finished. About 90 miles in...
MootoX YBB, Jan. 2013 frame birth.
XX1 (11-speed), 32 tooth ring
Industry 9's Torch Trail 24 2/1 wheelset, XD1 driver
IRD Fire XC Pro29 front/rear, a 2.1*
Ritchey WCS Flat 10D alloy bars, Oury locks
Issues being worked on:
Rear wheel non-driveside chainstay rub on hard right cornering: just a slight thrum-hum, but evidenced by a polished-streak in the beadblast. Considered causes: -- Since the wheel is true, maybe inaccurate dish.
-- IRD's 2.1 is more like 2.4.
-- I-9's sexy wheel is too flexy (24 vs 32)
-- YBB's stick-up-a-hole joinery allows rotatory flex in the triangle.
Gonna let build-shop handle tightening (?stiffening?) up the wheel, and correcting a 1/8" dish inequality. I think that'll likely handle it. Will likely try (first) locking out the YBB just to see the effect independently. And a narrower, or at least lower side-knob profile rear tire might help.
Another thing: I'm challenged to ride intelligently as I get used to aggressiveness on this bike; it's a hard-tail, to be sure, with the sweet touch of the soft-thang YBB. But I do occasionally (OK, more, maybe) get a little lazy and stay seated on hits I should stand over. In so doing, the YBB bottoms, more than I expected. Bang. 185 pounds. Stiffer spring/elastomer, whatever (I don't want reduced travel).
