    Singular Swift - Reverse Mullet - drop bar MTB build

    Singular Swift - in it's current reverse mullet build... "party up front, business in back".

    As someone who primarily rides cyclocross, I wanted to keep drop-bars and similar shifters, so that I can practice bike handling skills on the MTB trails.

    For moderate singletrack (no drop-offs, or major rock-gardens) I am impressed with how well this build works. I don't miss suspension (or wide flat bars) at all.

    Build info:
