For this one I went all out. I've wanted a BMW since I first saw a TMX smashing through the park in '99 or '00 so now that I was ready to order I spent days and weeks planning out every inch and no expense was sparred. As soon as I got the frame I handed it over to a long time friend and noted artist JEDI for some paint. Now with the frame back and all the parts assembled the bike has taken shape.

Specs:

Frame: Brooklyn Machine Works Big Ben
Fork: Marzocchi Shiver SC
Wheels: Spinergy Fall Line
Crank: SRAM Hammerschmidt AM
Shifter: SRAM X-0 Hammerschmidt
Headset: Brooklyn Machine Works Sealed
Stem: Brooklyn Machine Works Shorty
Seatpost: Thomson Elite
Pedals: Azonic 420
Seat: Tioga D-Spyder
Bar: Deity Topsoil
Brakes: Magura MT-8
Tires: Maxxis DHT 26x2.1
Grips: Aaron Ross Keyboards

Love the hand painted logo and the paint job as a whole is sick!
Is this frame bombproof heavy or chuck-around light? (or a perfect balance of both of course? :lol: )

Yes very nice paintjob indeed, loving those graffiti-straightletters. Reminds me about New york subway cars from the eighties :wink:

Wow - that's all kinds of cool!

Is that a carbon wrap you've got around the shivers?
