Great bike! White is not so difficult to set up, it's just different and looks... well... different as well :D
Can't wait to see it live!
Did White ever made front mechs?
Whats the final choice for the front? XTR950 converted with White wheel?
Need of top swing construction narrows choices here...

Thanks,

I have never seen any of signs of White front mech - however it would be great to have some CNC stuff rather than Shimano there but as Capri_77 mentioned, it must be top swing thing anyway. This STX has been installed for a while to see, whether the whole LMDS is going to work properly or not - but first tests are rather optimistic. If I am still so desperate in winter time, I will try to make some one-off unit replacing Shimano.
Rear mech is different as usually cables enter it from the top - in this case from the bottom - I must ask White Industries about the reasons, why this one is different. Cheers,

So, few weeks after first shooting I completed the bike, an I can say it is ready for now. Thanks to Capri_77 for Tiogas and Zooka stem :)
Now it is a bit heavier, but I guess, that is exactly what I expected it to look like. Enjoy new pictures :lol:
BTW - Tiogas are a bit dirty already, as I mentioned... Disaster...

Yup. Absolutely no more changes.
No more changes.
Definitely no more NOS parts.
No more old, cool components.
No more e-bay.

Just kidding :-)
