Thank you. I am considering powder coating or just spraying the rear frame white. It looks very nice in silver, but I reckon the white will match the front fork and the pedals, seat and grips
Also considering removing the orange from the raceface cranks.
Before I was running on this old 2000(?) boxxer pro
but the plastic bushing in one of the steerer tubes broke, so it would lock out on hard impact. Since the paint was kindof dodgy, I polished the housing by hand.. Took some hours!!!
It looked very cool when polished.
Here you can see the plastic bushing that was broken
The metal parts are supposed to be locked in place by the plastic.
But then I put on a drop off triple, which turned out to be crap! Air shock which bottomed out very easy! Thats why I went further on to the modified 66ATA
(factory modified). It weighs a lot more than the drop off triple and has less travel, but it's way beefier. The single crown does not seem to affect how rigid it is though.
I fit a very low stack height headset to regain some angle.
