    My New Rook has the Blues!





    I'm in the process of finishing my new Rook.I need to run some cables and get a chain.I decided to run it 2x9.I'm impressed with the bike so far.The fit is dead on.I'll finish and give a full report.The Blue frame is 35% faster than the red one.I can't wait to try it out.

    Sweet looker. Funny how the photo makes the head angle look steeper than the seat angle.

    Wow I dig it and I LOVED my old Rook with the orangish/red scheme. Astrix is top notch and a hell of a deal too. Congrads!

    That is SAWEET. Now I miss my old Rook.....

    The Blue with the nice panels is a great look. Astrix's frame finish was top notch if you ask me....how'd you source this one?

    WOW your new Rook looks GREAT!!!! I do really like that blue.
    GreenLightGo's Rook was my inspiration to build my own. Its kinda cool seeing all these Rooks pictured all in one thread.... Now get that chain and go out and ride, the Rook will become your favorite bike you have ever riden. Love mine so much, now all I want is a Monk now. Ryan and Diana at Astrix do a great job, in an industry that I think has lost the definition of customer service.

    Hey GreenLightGo,
    I know that you had the honor of having your bike up there for a long time, sorry to bump you... It was really cool when Ryan asked if he could use my photo on his web site. But something tells me when he gets a good picture of that blue one it will find its way to the front page.
    Do you regret selling yours? Or has the Sultan made you forget about it?
