Not mine, and michael lives in the states so it's unlikely to be his...

This and the pair of grooves... damn you man, you have a fine selection of bikes. Has this been built yet. A big fan of the yeti!

Thanks... my garage is like a bike shop from 1991-1995...

This is in the works, but a step closer. Got the crown for the M2, now just need some new elastomers and I'm almost there. I have all the other parts, just need some time. The Groves, an Ultimate and a Moots mountaineer have taken over a bit lately

Just a quick update on the build progress. Still a lot of work of work to do, trim steerer, replace elastomers in the Manitou 2, sort out stem and handlebar and get it all strung up. But it's coming along.

I might swap out the M900 cranks with some old school Grafton Speedstix in 3DV, not sure yet.

So it shall be done.

What do you think about an FTW team stem in matching turquoise with a 3DV Hyperlite bar?

by "team" stem do you mean the alloy FTW stem?

To me those stems represent more of the California era than the Durango one.

No-no... the team ATAC modified by FTW. Milled out handlebar clamp and angle cut quill end cap or whatever.

Like this, but turquoise:

The question is will turquoise match or clash?

It will clash. FYI those were Herting mods. Not saying FTW didn't perform them, it was just Herting's idea.
