After a long time with my bike sleeping in a room I am showing you the Evo 1.0. The reason of this evo is that the bike use to have a blue SID, but I wanted something more exclusive and put some purples on it, and purple with blue..... I have to say thanks to the great bike guru Star Trek to help me to fix the FSX. The result, awesome rideability.


Frame: Kona Hei Hei Titanium
Stem: Kooka Purple
Handlebar: Bontrager Titec Titanium.
Seatpost: Use Purple
Seat: Flite Evolution Carbon
Fork: Judy FSX with Star Trek tunning kit.
Almost full XTR.

Do you have purple cranks?

I am going to change the stickers for the retro one´s.

I hope you like it.

Not so sure about the Purple, but those forks are very very nice.

Finally a build that shows why purple was so cool in 1994!

And I like the white Panaracers..how dare anyone say Smoke / Dart is rubbish... :shock: :shock: :shock:

Mind, 4 arm crank .... like putting three spoke alloys on a Healey 3000 :evil:

I like it! I've never been a fan of too much anodising, but I don't think it's too much. I get the point about the crank, but I think that's splitting hairs, he's after another set. The bike looks great, Go ride it!

Ein!

Looks good, ditch the chainset though, needs some M950 action.
