Bent my ROS9+ frame in a crash before the vid, needed a 29+ replacement that would still be able to use my 142mm Onyx and Hadley rear wheels, enter Surly Krampus with gnot boost rear dropout. So far rides pretty well and gnot boost setup worked flawlessly.

Got a proper shakedown ride Sunday ~12 miles. Almost ate **** due to bars not tight enough on a small drop, one grip also needed some tightening plus seatpost slipped a bit causing some knee pain. Drive side tension slipped a tiny bit as well.

When I built this Krampus up late last year, in the process of cuttting the steerer what I thought was the mark I drew was not, only left about 1/2" to spare. So put some old Answer 20mm riser bar0s on but not ideal to me in height and Uber narrow like 760mm
