far from complete.. embarrassed by the pedals :oops: but them kcnc knife pedals sure aren't easy to track down in green.. i will cut the bar even further, noticed i'm only using half of it even when going downhill.. homemade chain tensioner also needs to be modified.. 29 x 13 felt as a really good drivetrain setup.. I have another rear wheel, with hope ti ss hub, it's 200g easier then current on silent clutch lx hub.. but i'm working on it.. have replaced the axel for an srp ti and will do some more upgrades as well.. sure do like the super silent sounds :D ..shimano mx30 freewheel are quiet but not silent

Lovely Sunns as always, Bio. I'm loving the green one, nice shade of paintwork you got there.

Would this purple seatpost be too modern for your tastes? It's now not in use, has a couple of scratches below the insert line, but further up is good.

Love Exact. You must accumulate a lot of parts to do the two colour thing. Do you do your own wheelbuilding with the two colour hub flanges and nipples?

yes.. i guess.. have looked at them charge seatposts, as they come in purple obviously.. but aren't they availible in 350mm only? need a 400mm


Yes I do all wheelbuilding myself.. these wheels with revolution spokes.. two color project are expensive, ooh yes :p it all started with the purple blue hope ti hubs.. then the blue purple tune ti bb.. rare, but not cheep.. now i just want to complete it, starting to loose patience


peace folks :)

stupid lazy downhill machine.. haha.. when I rode it today I imagined - this is how a status husband or wife must be to live with - nice package, exclusive, getting a lot of envious looks making you feel better about yourself, but to be honest a boring saggy ride :P .. :facepalm: great great looks though :mrgreen:
