A beauty.

I bet it handles really nicely.

Have you tried it with some rigid forks ?

Last weekend my GF used this bike to make her first steps into the offroad world.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orNND4LgrOI

but i had to fix some thing, when we got back we were missing a crack bolt and the rear derrailleur was not shifting as i would like to see it shift
Made some changes just now and tested the bike after by making a nice ride around the city.

I have been in the position to ride and build allot of nice (and wanted/exclusive) bikes but i have to be honest, this one is the best rider of them all,..better then the Serotta's, Fat Ti, Seven, Yo Eddy, Ibis, all of them,...
Can't wiat to get mine in next week, i just received the notification that it was received today at the customs :)

Very nice machine my man.Looks 5 times better without those spengles!!
Are they not rather heavy those wheels?I take it gibble did not have them?
Good job for him as his san andreas would only be quick in one direction then!! (down gorleston cliffs where he had his little wheel bending accident about 13 years ago,He He He.

thanks
which wheels are you referring to?
These Rond Hubed wheels are not that heavy, only these michelin tires are heavy
I have had these Rond wheels for a long time and they never fail
