Done!...I'm not so sure that a resto-mod style build like this belongs in pre 1997 forum here, but if it needs to be moved, then I'm ok with that. The frame is a 1997, fresh from Bilenky and Fresh Frame where the rim brake braze-ons and cable guides were burned off in favor of disc goodies.

Frame: 1997 Easten Woods Research E-Motion

Fork: Kona P2II Disc

Headset: Chris King Mango
Stem: Race Face System
Handlebar: Race Face Deus
Grips: Oury
Barends: Huh?

Brakes: Avid BB7
Brake Levers: Altek BL

Shifters: Sram X-0
Front Derailleur: NONE!
Rear Derailleur: Sram X-0 carbon cage
Cassette: Sram 980 11-34
Chain:Sram 91
Cranks: Kona steel, 32 tooth single ring and Kona bash
Bottom Bracket: Race Face SRX ISIS
Pedals: Deore DX


Hub Skewers: Salsa
Rims: Sun SOS
Hubs: Ringle Disk Jockey
Nipples: brass
Spokes: stainelss
Tyres: Continental

Saddle: SDG Kevlar
Seatpost: Thomson 410mm


Weight: yes

Build notes... The stem and steerer tube are being evaluated before I do the final trim. Right now I've got two spacers up and one down. Sorta like it like that.

It's an N-Gear Chain Watcher. Not attached to the cranks at all, rather just a very simple, and inexpensive little bolt-on doodad. You can find out more on page three of this thread...

Nice to see it finished dude, I know you weren't keen on the orange but it's amazingly vibrant paint :)

I love that frame design - very much what I'm looking to get built when I have the time and cash available... pictures stored for later use :wink:

Awesome looking machine 8)

Thanks, pal. You've put together some great machines of late, so that means a lot to me. :D

Orange is growing on me. It is actually metalic too, which I sort of like. Not quite bass-boat metallic, but a little more sparkle than most I've seen. Rather pretty, actually! 8)
