Great Bike Si. Really looking forward to details on what hippitech did to the forks (any chance of pics?). Will there be a separate thread detailing the fork mods?

Steering and control is now handled by a loverly WCS bar,, :)

Getting the power down required something light, reliable , easy to strip and service and most of all suiting to the build... so what else could I use.. :)

Ritchey Lockring to keep the 8speed cassette nice and tight on a dura ace Ti freehub body.. :)
Next up was the cassette,, :) currently fitted is a custom sram unit as the titanium unit I chose for the project was too light and fragile for mountain use , I went through a few nice cassettes, testing and adjusting weights and ratio's

Si.

When I saw this bike at the Gisburn ride back in Feb this year I thought It could never ever look better than it did that day.

I stand corrected and salute you on a awsome job and IMO one of the coolest bikes on here.
