Hi, here's my cotic soda.
It has a little story to it.
My previous bike (barracuda a2r 1996
) was damaged by a car crashing into me, my brother, and a friend on the next to last training for 'les chemins du soleil'.
The cuda now has a couple of 'nice' dents, and the hanger for the derailleur is bent. Several other parts are damaged too.
I broke my collarbone and injured my knee. That friend of mine was the least lucky, his knees are terribly damaged, disabling him to walk around for more than 30 minutes. My brother was still able to ride in the 'chemins'. The lucky bastard.
I've hated people in cars ever since the accident happened, ignorant asses, get a bike!
After revalidation, and saving up some money I could buy a new frame.
I bought it from nick on this forum about a year ago i guess, it has taken a while to finish the bike, being a student and all. Here it is, hope y'all like it, and yes, I'm a sucker for gold
The setup of the bike is as following:
handlebar: syntace duraflite
saddle: tune speedneedle
headset: chris king
fork: fox r100
crank: middleburn rs7
shifters: x0 gripshifts
wheels: hope hubs, ztr olympic rims, dt swiss competition spokes
tires: conti mountain kings
front derailleur: xtr
bottom bracket: lx
brakes: hope X2 with floating discs
bottlecage: topeak alu
Thanks to fingers for helping me out getting the pics up!
