Hi to all!
i'm really happy to introduce you my "new" project...
I've always loved canadian mtb frames, and I've been always fascinated by the "maple leaf" ones...
in 2007 i was the happiest guy on the earth when I've bought a second-hand 2001 RMTN Slayer... and then i've always continued to search a vertex and/or an Ets-X frame, if possible with the maple-leaf colour scheme...
so... thanks to the forum, in dec 2018 I've finally found a vertex...
It's been stocked for too many months in order to collect some proper components for it...
it's not finished yet, but more or less it gives an idea of the project :mrgreen:

Initially the plan was to use it as a "everyday-bike"... with a steely rigid fork, a pair of cheap vbrakes, a pair of nos 2005 LX 36h hubset laced to a mavic xc317 rims and with a 3x9 setup...
