Forgot I had this stashed away in the corner, still in the box. I picked it up a few months back thinking someday I'll have the right bike for it. Now I have two! :P

So should it go onto the Rocky Mountain Titanium or the DeKerf Generation??? They both currently have the same nice CNC'd black Race Face Deus stems.

Also have the same dilemma with two 27.0mm seatposts. One's a Dean Titanium, currently on the RM Titanium, and the other is a black Syncros post, currently on the Dekerf. Should I swap the two???

It's a few years new than the RM Ti, but I think ti would go well.

I don't really know the Dekerf but it' looks to shiny to have this on.

Only if the Syncros post is a Ti one, the Black would look all daft with the grey stem. Silver Syncros post would be ok...

Only thing is that it'll be a very grey bike.

Or perhaps shift the dean ti to the DeKerf, and install the stem, as well as some pewter grey RF bits along with it?

Or should I save all this for another future project??? :twisted:

Tough call. I would say: pewter, black and some silver parts only on the RM.

Good luck,
Ben

That wouldn't be a difficult decision for me... That Rocky deserves a RaceFace stem. Preferably the AerMet100 one if you can find one :? Otherwise the ti version of course... Leave the Syncros to the deKerf and also fit the Syncros cranks on that one... and you'll see... both live happy ever after.. :D
