That bike is so nearly there, just needs some pedals and clips and it'd be bang on. Not those mickey mouse spuds :lol: .

That looks smashing, love the paint too.

I've always had a soft spot for Dyna Techs, there was a purple Ti one on eBay recently but it was local pick up only and in Scotland :(

Thanks guys

If you look closely at pic 1 and the close up of the front hub, you'll notice an unusual spoke pattern which I decided to give a go at last week, only suitable for front wheels though.

It cost a fortune to get my initials on the front trye :lol:

Is that front wheel X2 laceing :?:

Fantastic build on there very tidy and original

I bought a similar frame from Boyburning in white, with mottled blue and green Ti tubes, have built it with mainly XT and some coloured goodies.

I was suprised by how light they are and how superbly they ride :D :D :D
