I couldn't be happier. I had a Brave a long time ago, one of my first "real" mountain bikes. I saw this frame and got lucky. I got it straight from Tom Teesdale himself. According to him there were 5 Chiefs built. He provided the original decals. Cyclart did the original artwork for Brave Cycles and they are 3 miles from my house. They did a fantastic job.

The build will consist of a barely used 1st gen XTR group, cranks, shifters, levers, deraillers and hubs. NOS Suntour Rollercams, NOS XT post (unless I can find an XTR). I always wanted something unique like this. I can't wait to get it built.

This is going to be one of the more special bikes on the VRC scene this year I feel. Lets hope there is either an e-stay BOTM or a splatter BOTM this year, 'cause this bike will be a hard one to beat. (In fact, it will be hard to beat in any BOTM).

Loving that paint - it's like a p-series Ritchey's acid-fiend brother!

The project thus far looks like it'd be a BoTM contender any month. Don't ever recall seeing a Brave in the UK, don't think they ever made it here BUT they seemed to get featured (or advertised, I forget) in MBA a fair bit.

Did the frame come bare from Teesdale? What was the story with it. That paint looks 8) , super box fresh!
