    Implant?

    What about an implant? I have a team now but would much rather have an implant so I could run a 5" fork. A used one or other good deal would be perfect, don't quite have the $ right now for a new custom frame. Looking for a 17" or so.

    If anybody's got a line, please let me know.....

    Thanks!

    There have been some used Implants listed on NSMB in the past. You could try searching there to see if they are still for sale.

    (Search words "DeKerf" & "Implant")

    Also might be worth checking Pinkbike.

    Implant!

    Well, thanks to everbody here, especially Mike- he suggested a shop that did have a used implant for sale. After finding that it was my size, AND my favorite color, I had it shipped asap. Great timing since the romic on my FS blew it's guts that same week!

    The build:
    17" Dekerf Implant, rootbeer brown.
    XT, disc brakes with 8" wavy front rotor (not pictured)
    Mavic rims with geax sturdy 2.25 UST tires.
    King headset
    Thomsen post & 70mm stem, 26" monkeylite riser bars
    Race Face turbine cranks, 22/32, 12-34 cassette.

    I'm really impressed with the bike! I tried it with my Z150, but it was too slack, the front end wandered even on flat trails. The Z1 is perfect. With short chainstays and stem, but longer top tube and head tube, this bike has really unique geometry compared to my old 17" dekerf team frame. A much better position and fit for agressive trail riding and FR use. VERY easy to wheelie drop and manual. Stable at high speeds. Clearance for big tires.

    After a few local rides, I took it up to whistler... a quick run in the bike park, then we used the new garbonzo lift plus 1500' of mostly hike-a-bike, to access Kyhber ridge. This makes for a 5000' descent that includes "babylon by bike" and "tunnel vision" trails. Steep, technical singletrack with some drops, a few elevated parts, and slabs, including a stretch where you must rapel down with ropes. The implant was more than up to the task and after that ride I have no reservations taking this bike out on any trails. Since then it's seen some challenging trails. I never would have guessed a hardtail could be so confidence inspiring.

    Thanks again for everybody's help!

    Dig that color... really nice.

    Say; is that a brand new frame, or a geared frame that Chris altered with the EBB shell..??? (costs..?)

    It's an EBB mod to the existing Team 853; a semi-custom option that Chris offers, but doesn't advertise. Best to call him for pricing; the EBB is a few hundred dollars upcharge I think.

    paint...

    I have an older (~ 91 or 92) Brodie and am thinking about getting it repainted. Do you know who paints Dekerf's frames, and what they charge? Any other recommendations?

    Chris DeKerf paints his own frames, as well as frames for others.

    He has quite the paint shop set up actually. No idea what he charges though, check his site?

    As a matter of fact; Brodie's old painter 'Toxic Harold', now paints for Chris DeKerf. Look at some of the more excentric paintjobs we've seen the last few years. They all have the same look/detailing as those Brodie's with maple leaves etc.

    Don't know what a paintjob costs at this time, but Chris/Harold for sure can help you out.

    Toxic Harold , formerly of Brodie and now DeKerf, is the way to go. You can see examples of his work in this thread. The four Brodies I posted were all painted by him.

    Please post before and after images of yours if you can.
    Show me your Toads. Old Brodies, too.

    Dekerf ST frames

    What are the frame sizes of the 2 ST's. Very interested please email me.

    The first is the Team ST in Kermit green.


    The second is an AWESOME custom pearl-white job. This one was ordered and custom painted by Dekerf for someone in town here and they backed out at the last second. Too bad. Now this gorgeous frame just collects dust as itís never been sold. Total shame. It screams to be ridden.


    The third frame is my buddy Johnís (shop owner) Elysium that he just had shipped back to him from Chris. John rode it last season then sent it back to have a disk tab welded on. The boys at DK did a beautiful job. The welds are the typically perfect ones you find on ti frames. They then rebrushed it and put brand new decals on after the work was done. It looks completely new. God is this thing nice (and light). Ti is good lookin' stuff, man. Itíll be built up very shortly (again) I can assure you ;-)




    The next time John and I ride together Iíll be sure to take some better picks of the Elysium for those interested. I didnít have much time today to take good shots of anything.

    Anyway,
    Later.

    Dekerfs in the UK

    Between my flatmate and I we have a pair of Dekerfs. Both bought second hand, so I'm trying to find out a bit more about them. The first is a dark green 96(?) Dekerf Team with its serial number still in double digits, I seem to remember. Oddly the cable routing is all down the right hand side of the top tube. Not sure if this is normal.

    Mine is a 98(?) Team SL, I was told. I was red previously, I believe, but was re-painted silver when the disc mounts and crudcatcher bosses were added. It is currently badged as a Team 853 but I think the serial number is too low for this. It doesn't seem to be a UK Ltd, which it most closely resembles. All the cable routing on this one is down the left hand side. It'd be nice to find out more about it but all e-mails and phone calls to Dekerf have remained unanswered.

    As soon as I have more details and some pictures, I'll post them.

    Hi,

    I figured I'd reactivate this thread with a picture of my Dekerf (niknamed Big Birg) at the top of Mount Aigual, during a 780 Km trek accros the trails and forest roads of France's Central Mountains last summer.

    Upset Cool thread!

    I've been a Dekerf fan for a long time, having had a Team ST (w/ broken ti chainstays!), and now a Team SL and an Elysium. Nice to see there's more of us!
