This my Dekerf Team SL - the frame was finished on 15th February 2000, with the Rockshox being painted to match by Dekerf, before being shipped out to my friend in the UK who worked in the cycle trade at the time. He built it up using Hope hubs and disc brakes, XTR gearing, Raceface chainset (carbon inserts) and stem/bars/seatpost, finishing it a few weeks later.

I was lucky enough to buy it off him in 2002 and it remains the same to this date. It is a superb ride, the best bike I've ridden by far.

Great to see another DEK on the forum - I have a Tangerine Singlespeed from approx 1999 which is about to undergo a transformation courtesy of the application of a Rohloff hub.

Currently trying to work out the optimum cable routing.....

Totally agree ref your comments on ride. Mine is in Reynolds 725 which I think is regarded as being a 'poor man's' DEK but it suits me well.
