Bike i built up last winter

Frame/Fork: Dirt Research Pecos - Columbus Thron DB - unknown year (1998?)

Headset: Cane Creek
Stem: Thomson
Handlebar: Ritchey WCS
Grips: Oury
Brakes: XT, bought here
Drivetrain: 36X18
Crankset: RaceFace Turbine, bought here
BB: RaceFace Taperlock
Chain: Sram
Pedals: Ritchey
Wheelset: Mavic / Specialized Stout / DTSwiss Onyx
Tyres: Kenda SmallBlock Eight 26X2,35
Saddle: Fizik CowSkin, bought here
Seatpost: Thomson
Seatpost Binder: Salsa

Weight: below 10kg

Frame was an absolute ebay bargain & came with a few nice surprises like S-bend seatstays, good tire clearance, clever cable routing, nice cast rìtchey dropouts... i resprayed it, since it had a few rust spots. Probably didn't do a great job as the paint chips easily... still happy with the ride.

I think the frame and general set up is classy and understated, like the prune :D

No comment on the cow hide! :lol:

I had one of those saddles, about 5 or 6 years ago. I loved it but it started to go bald :(

I love the bike by the way, any more pictures?
