So, this is my latest project.
I have been cleaning house lately but when this came up I had to buy it.
It is a little rougher than the last Hot that I owned and may get a repaint at some time but I ride my bikes so it will do the trick for now.
Hopefully I will have it built next week.
I will be using mostly XTR M900 parts except for the seatpost and cranks.
Crankset will be silver CQP's and not sure on seatpost.
Anyways, I will update early next week.

Tom Teesdale is one of America’s most prolific frame builders. From his start in 1976 33 years later to 2009 he has built thousands of frames. Many of these bikes were built under contract from some of the most famous names in cycling, Gary Fisher, Marin, Dean and Kona to name just a few.
