More to come as build progresses!

When I first got this, she was a very plain dressed bike with nothing special.
Just the usual XT and everyday wheels, not very attractive to say the least.
Definitely was lost in the crowd and did not shine in the pack as she could.

Not sure where she'll end up, but should be a head turnerI would think.

Cheers

Looks nice.. Some odd looking details on frame .. Cable stop lay out on top tube and cable guide round the seat tube.. Is it a Kona ?

Nice paint too :)

Cable guides similar to this viewtopic.php?f=6&t=63721

Other threads talked about some of the Teesdale Hot's being built without any of the cable guides etc which were added by Kona at the finishing stage.

No, the lower cup. Above the race sitting on the fork crown.
