All super clean after the morning's ride with the kids.

Damn it's satisfying to look at a clean bike.

New additions: new specialised phenom 143 saddle. Looking for some x9 or x0 shifters.

I had the Marathon version of this and was a superb! I then swapped the frame to a carbon stumpy which is amazing also. I do wish I still had the epic too as I sometimes find 120mm travel a little too much. Liking yours although I would stick to red, also be careful when you wash it as the decals rub off easily.

Also you can get inserts for the brake hose on the top tube for pennys oh and ifyou can get hold of some terralogic forks they compliment this bike so well.

Hey. Yup, the zip ties were a race solution that stayed. Not heard of the inserts you're talking about. Can you send me a link?

Are you after some of the split plastic inserts that go around the hoses and keep them securely in the metal guides on the frame? Think I should have a few lying around I can pop in the post :)

Doh beaten to it, that's what I'm talking about I've used electrical tape before.

I had one of these in the middle of the crossbar just to stop any rattles

They are ace... fast as F@&k and all under control...

Just selling my frame because I have wanted a On One Lynskey 456 for a while and found the right one.. not the only non Specialized bike in the family!

Only fun to be had on one of those, loved mine to bits!!
