Thats a really gorgeous frame, gotta love that paint!

Can't help thinking the XTR looks a little out of place, did you consider anything else with this build? I'd have liked M730 XT on myself.

hi sandmangts, do you still have these pedals? If I'm looking right, they should be Shimano DX, they are?

cheers

Very nice Alex, I am glad to see you built the bike up properly. I am glad it went to a true enthusiast like you. I think your build is better than mine was. Keep in mind there were only 2 E-stay Chiefs ever built.

No, I don't think anyone does. I have only seen one other Chief which was a standard non-e-stay frame. I purchased this frame directly from Tom Teesdale. He made the fork especially for that frame. Jim Cunningham of CyclArt did all the original paint work for Brave so I took it to him for the paint which was insanely expensive. When I talked to Tom about it he said he could not remember if he actually made another like this one. He said 1 or 2 at the most so thats what I am going on. I would think if you make a frame like this with all the work that goes into a fillet brazed frame it would be hard to forget but Tom is a very unique individual. It may very well be the only one but I can't say for sure.
