I'm rather pleased with this now......all the NOS stuff was intended for other bikes but seems to have ended up here :roll:

Turned into a bit of a Retrobike build this one. Thanks to Cannondale King (wheelbuilding), Gil_m (custom decals), Kingroon (tyres), MadCowKev (Tioga hub and rims) and I'm sure the Flite was from here too 8)

Very nice indeed, those DBR's are very underrated frames, nearly had one myself a little while back (let down by a recently departed member)

Do I recognise those Bar Ends by any chance? :)

That is really, really nice. Never been much of a DBR fan in truth, but feel like I might now be turning.

Liking the simplicity of it and the spec is just right. You've not made it a flash harry, it looks like its fully functional and ready to hit the trails, but good looking enough to turn heads.

Like it alot. OCDBR is'nt contagious is it?
