Echoing what's said, there is something very right about that bike and it's not usually my sort of thing.

What's the weight?

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


yes rides great, spoke pattern was from a link on Sheldon Brown's site
