first ride-able throw together since getting the frame
winter hack build almost complete
took it for a spin and liked it alot - although rear end a little hard, front end maybe a tad too soft and the handle bars are friggin panoramic
....taken me long enough to get the bloody thing together anyway so not gonna complain too much.
May look to go single speed as well.
spec as follows so far:
Manitou splice comp 130
Token headset - top part missing so threw in parts from FSA headset. this is a real Frankenstein's monster of a bike)
DMR DeeVee rim, deore disc hub
Tektro Auriga Comp disc brake - needs major bleeding. its so spongy i could do the washing up with it.
Truvativ Holzfeller cranks/gigapipe BB
cheap Sunline bashguard (transparent plastic) but seems decent enough for 12 snids
BETD goldtec chain ring 40T
Weinnmann ZAC rim, deore hub
(soon to be) magura HS33 rear brake
9 speed SRAM cassette
LX M571 Mech
Rock Shox Deluxe coil with rebound adjust (its tucked away under the seat post - need needle pliers to adjust it :S)
Selle italia saddle
tyres: Spesh crossroads armadillo. on their way out....
handle bars: Ritchey. about a mile wide.
