My other favourite so far is EdEdwards light blue number - stunning build!

After some discussion with Chris - I just got back from his shop with my new project!
Any recommendations for the build?

I could use them. I have never built from the frame up before.

Here is my 94 Mountain that used to be Caspers single speeder.

It is due for a F&R mech change shortly, not because the M900's don't work well, but just because they do not suit the colour scheme of the build (dhaaarling). :facepalm:

That Immplant looks fantastic lfergs. You will love the way it rides. I have just done the Coast2Coast in the UK on mine.

NeilM: What brakes do you use? Maybe it'll even ride better with a Racing Ralph on the back?

And mine. Made a few changes since the last post. King/217 wheels. Flite Evolution, and a colour matched Mag 21.

The brakes are Cane Creek Direct Curve 3's, I love em.

I think the tyres are working so well because of the superb balance of the Dekerf. I have had the tyres on several other bikes and found that breakaway at the back is very unpredictable. I have also read a lot on other forums where people either love or hate them.

Thanks Casper. Thamks NeilM.

Any other pieces that perform particularly well on the implant?

What is your drivetrain set-up as?

Here's mine:
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=95366&start=10#p1984105

Drivetrain is XX. Fork is 130mm, 15mm axle up front and normal QR at the back. I think if I would do it again, I'd have an axle at the back as well.
