Wasn’t sure where to post these but these are the bikes I’ve built up over the last few months from old / new parts.

The black one is my sons and the gray one is my beast.

The back wheel on mine is 20yrs old, I had it hand built by my LBS when I was 15, 36h LX hub with mavic D521 rim, it’s taken a beating over the years and still runs true.

I’ll write a full spec list when I get on my laptop later on

They look good mate. I’m intrigued why you mixed up the wheels. Are the shivers for yours?

Thanks! :D

The Shivers? :?

Initially I was riding the Planet X JF frame fully rigid with hydraulics for trials, the hope front wheel is super light and has the ceramic, same as my old LX and has stayed on my bike ever since.
