Gorgeous bike, although I would be tempted to put some Fox shocks on it and let it rip the trails.

U need to push the gripshifts a bit further, so the wires are closer to the brakelevers. Looks a bit wrong right now.

Otherwise it looks good, I like the x-rays! maybe some xtr v's should be aligned for that ultra sassy look?

Nice 8)
I remember seeing the frame in one of your previous posts and i've been waiting to see the build. Looks fantastic 8)
The forks look like they'll be a a bit flexy though. Are the Ti ARCs short for their size? Both frames pictured look short, or is it me?

the ti arcs were built by sandvik & are longer than in the toptube than the alu arcs of the same year.

Apart from having way too many gears, that really is a sweet ride.

Congrats n Jubes!

C8T,
yeah i know what you mean about the shifters. problem comes about with the shape of the shifter body and the recess in the box lever mount.
with the blade of the lever at a sensible angle downwards, thats the nearest the shifter with rotate round <does that make sense :shock: >
i cant have the levers running flat, just don't look/feel right.
also working to bag some xtr v's, currently on~going :D
