The first episode

There's one year ago. After reading the "MTB for sale", I saw a post from Trip : C26 tube set for sale.
"I've got the tubeset, you got the frame… Hey mate ! The tubeset his yours". I was going in a crazy adventure, a friendly story.
I contacted Ameybrook The Pioneer of the C26 rebirth for knowing some details of his awesome adventure, and, the evening, I send a mail to Chris Herting himself.

The end of december, I shipped my yeti FRO frame to the Colorado. I don't know if I'm the 3th or 4th, making a C26 rebirth project, but I'm sure it would be the smallest frame ! I think, Chris Herting would laugh when He received a so small frame (smaller than Furtado's") : Do you really want a C26 in this size ?

In the end of march, I received these pictures…

For waiting news about the metamorphosis, some Retrobikers helped me for some parts : Justkev for a nice bullseye crank, Scant for a so nice Bradbury area manitou fork, Broomhandle, my link in the USA, Gil M for the decals, Mojo, a french friend for preparing some component…

Ameybrook said me that his C26 rebirth was very long (quite 2 years). But, I'm a lucky man and, last weekend, I received a box from USA.
(I agree with Ameybrook who prefers to show a project when completed, but I'm so excited that I can't wait showing you the first pictures.)

Cool project, Pierre. Building a C-26 from left over parts. It is like what some did with exotic Bugattis and Ferraris.

This is one of those times that I for the heart!
I'm speechless.
The small sizes are very playful and flirty, but there are people who do not appreciate them, maybe much more exclusive than one frame in size medium.
