I've decided i'm on a roll!! Having just completed the Cindercone i decided it was about time the McMahon was finished and trail ready....

The following is where i am at the minute....(pretty much done):

Frame: McMahon Titanium 91'
Forks: McMahon Titanium
Stem: McMahon Titanium (15 degree rise, 115mm)
Bars: Merlin Titanium
Barends: Onza Ti (mk2)(soon to be replaced by McMahon Titanium)
Headset: Chris King 1"
Seatpost: McMahon Titanium
Saddle: Flite Titanium
Bottom Bracket: McMahon Titanium
Cranks: McMahon Steelydanz
Chainrings: Cooks Bros 24T, Real 34T, Real 44T
Pedals: Bullseye Ti flats
Levers: Box
Brakes: McMahon Scissor Brakes (F&R)
Grips: Ritchey Clear
Shifters: XT M732
Front Mech: XT M732
Rear Mech: XT M732 (with Bullseye jockey wheels - Blue)
Chain: Shimano HG90 7 Speed
Hubs: Bullseye 32H Silver/Chrome
Spokes: DT black double-butted
Rims: Mavic MA40 32H
Tires: Panracer Magic F&R
Skewers: Cook Bros Titanium (Silver) (F&R & Seat QR)
Bottle Cage: Ringle H2O (Blue)

A pair of "garage queen" wheels is on the way (Ringle Ti-Stix hubs & QR's, Bontrager Rims & Onza Prototype Butterscotch Porcupines tires), but the present wheels are for general use....

McMahon sus forks to be added soon, when i get them sorted out....

Think i may be stirring controversy with the pedals, but i'll be sticking some M737 SPD's on for trails anyway... :wink:

Sorry my camera is crap!! :roll: Will take better (& upright) pics when it's out of the house....
Hope u like it......i'm pretty happy with it :D

A BIG thanks to Gil for sorting the decals for me!!

thats looking pretty nice & those pedals are pretty rare :D



being ultra picky, minor word of advice, lower the f.mech on the seattube slightly, outer plate 1-3mm above the big ring.

The damn brakes took an age to get right!! :roll: :D

Hi Drewson,

Yes, your camera is much too crap for photographing such a nice bike. Awesome!

Good to see the rest of the bike doesn't let the brakes down!

and these aren't 730... something about 73x. ;-)

there was another mcmahon seatpost model. i think that would be nicer on it. and don't put the suspension fork on it.
