Buying a bike is just the beginning of the project, and no bike will survive adventure enduro rides right off the production line. The two main design fundaments of the build were intertwined.

The obvious goal was to keep the bike as light as possible, which is easy with parts selection. The hard part is applying the same fundament to everything that goes on the bike.
