The build starts.

I like the look of this one. She's an 18.5" 853 model, in an unusual colour.

I like the way the USE Ti post mirrors the fork stations. I would normally have gone black post.

Not quite as pretty as the two tone maple leaf ones but still a beaut of a bike and they ride really well.

Look forward to seeing the finished bike :)

You know what, I prefer the gun metal grey paintjob. It was a special order for a shop in the USA apparently. It reminds me of my long lost 1999 Explosif. Always was a fan of "stealth".

Can't wait to see how she rides.

Looks good finished.

I've got a 2006 one of these...the ride is quite 'pinned'. Go find some really twisty singletrack and enjoy :)
