mmmmmm... what a ride :) i'm soo pleased.. except for that saddle though.. looks cool and by the books, but is a true big punisher for my ass.. a selle slr fire element saddle on its way.. bike will also get some ti bolts

Image

wheels are with brubz hubs, dt comp. spokes and dt xr 4.1 ceramic rims.. drivetrain is nos race face turbine cranks and ta spec. rings 24 36, salsa ring dinger bash, kmc sl chain and shimano xt 11-30 cassette.. actually only bb and cassette is shimano, xt.. bought back a race face real seal headset, lovely :) and am very satisfied with the free nos sram 9.0 sl carbon short cage rear mech.. mmm :) shifters are esp 900 and brakes are avid mags, think they look good, adding some more ti color.. and yes, stem is of the brand orange

over and out for now

Sweet bike!

Well done on keeping it alive. haha

Just wondering if you have any trouble with the forks? My own carbon obsys always leak oil just after servicing by my LBS so became unusable. The guy at my LBS said that the seals were perished and he couldn't get ones for the fork and was even talking about doing something to make them rigid!

Any tips?

Whats up with the cable on the green steel one?

Both very nice. I'd run two brakes if it were mine though.
