Our local friend, Freddie, decided to go with a John Henry after riding several suspension bikes and carbon hardtails.
We built up his bike complete with at DT Swiss/ Arch 29 No Tubes Wheelset, a SRAM 1×10 drivetrain (XX cassette, XO shifters & derailleur, and KMC chain) and a pair of Magura Marta brakes. These are my new favorite stoppers.
On the frame, Freddie let me try something new on the brake brace, just something to get it out of the way for the slider tensioning bolt. His frame is otherwise fitted up as a standard Medium John Henry.
Where’s the fire?
