Not a real buildthread, because i bought this bike almost as i wanted it, but i made some small changes and now it's as i want it to be, i think :roll:

Bought i like this fully equipped with XTR M900 except the wheels, and took it for a spin in the Italian mountains

Really love a 0-degree steerer and was happy to swap one for a 10-degree! Still in black but it will be HLF.

Very tidy Arie! 8)

It looked tough when it had the black MC1 fitted, my Gator Rascal has a black MC and black Spinners, it's all in bits though.

Has been always one of my favorite colors, and in 19" with no-rise stem looks so racy!!

That's one of my unicorns, one of the few aluminium bikes I like.

And very well built.
