hi
i've noticed a couple of these on here lately and decided i should show mine too. it's a bit of a restomod. at least that is what it would be called in the automotive circles. when new(er) meets old. you'll see what i mean from pictures. this is quite light and very fun to ride. will not be everyone's cup 'o tea. :roll:

My ultimate frame... 8) 8)

Can't decide on the forks, but I still like the build.

How do you get on with the tyres? I have a pair I use in dusty conditions, but they hate cornering (with all my weight, it must be said) so it'd be nice to know from someone else that has them...

hi
i'm a big proflex fan. when deciding on a fork for this build i came across this vector in gun metal grey it was a no brainer for me. bought it instantly. thought the yellow decals went reasonably well with the dean decals.
i have had no issues with these tires. it only gets ridden in the summer so dry dust conditions are the only ones it's been thru. are you talking dusty pavement or dusty hard packed trails? done both with no problems.

hi
trek. maybe. bontrager supplies to trek or is part of trek or is bedfellows with trek. something like that. i wanted to go all carbon add ons with this build. bontrager seemed to have all the components. started with the cranks, added the seatpost, stem and handlebar. the bike came with the bontrager rims. found the seat, barends and tires to match too. my parents bought me the water bottle cages for a birthday present. :) i was happy. sram had the carbon drivetrain to go with it. xtr 960 brakes matched the grey scheme. rear cassette id a token one piece cnc'd unit titanium nitrate treated and then coated to this grey to match. all in all i think it goes together well.
