always wanted to ride Reynolds 853 tubes on one of my bikes. so jumped on when this frame was for sale over here. was powder coated by pre-previous owner in a kind of light pearlescent white. some of you will remember that frame.

build will include a black SID, Thomson post and Mavic Crossmax tubeless - not sure for gruppo - XTR 950 or 960 :roll:
