Coming together quite nicely. Need to build a front wheel with the Hugi hub I have on hand (rear is Hugi and is nice and noisy). Might use a clear Tension disc but it has an M900 XTR hub and a Tioga sticker.

My most sincere and deepest appreciation to a certain RetroBIKE member who will remain nameless until such time as he gives me the high sign. That fine man provided the grey Prolong saddle and original, from his own garage, genuine Ned Overend Zoom bar ends.

Here it is so far. Yes still work to do but coming along nicely ...

Nice!!!

not jalous at all by the way. I mean, it's just one of the nicest mtb frames ever made. And it's not that I'm a Specialized fan or anything... :wink:

Thanks for the kind words. I will take a close up of the bar ends and post it in a bit.
Yes, those are TNT cranks :)

Damn it gets dark early ...

Still cleaning up from the aftermath of Sandy. Have electricity as of this morning and thankfully heat- as the temperatures dipped to the low 40s today. 7 days without either was a bit much.

After dismantling the 10'x10' shed that flew over our six foot high fence from a neighbor's yard, repairing some damage and moving 40 bags of top soil I used to build a berm across the garage door to prevent flood waters from entering, I got to work finishing off the S-Works Ultimate Ned Overend Final Edition.

Very special thanks to Ameybrook for the grey Prolong S Ti saddle and for the real-deal, from the man himself Ned Overend bar ends.

I took it for quick ride in the waning light and it felt oh-so-sweet. Hugi rear hub woke up the neighbors About the only thing that might make it even more impressive is if I build up a tension disc with on that hub. In fact, I think I'll do exactly that.

Better pictures (well, within the limits of my admittedly limited photographic skills) when I have the opportunity but here it is as completed and ridden this evening.
