This one started a while back with someone posting a picture of a very minty Grove Tandem on MTBR in the WIW thread. Fast forward a bit and the Hammerhead and fork are on ebay with the tandem being partly "updated". Luckily I won both the fork and bar/stem. Then the search for something to put them on. I was hoping to find a New England built frame, possibly a Fat Wicked, but up pops this Grove built Brave and I work a deal to end the auction early. Add in an almost complete XC Pro build with Dia Compe 987/ss7 brakes and here you go. Before the critique starts, tires are now matching.

Thanks. When I first got the parts, I wasn't sure how the colors were going to work together. But I like.
