Rush in raw aluminum w/blue anodized parts
I buildt up this Rush with parts from my 01 Jekyll .
It looked a little odd with 6 year old parts on it so I upgraded
with a 717 wheelset and carbon bar .
Then I got the blue anodized water bottle cage and decided that
that coloured contrasted nicely with the frame's so I have been adding
any b/a parts I could find .
Some that I found were only available in titainium so .... what the heck ,
I added them as well .

Very nice!!!!! what kind of handle bar did you put on it and how much did it cost because I am in the process of building my first bike (which is a Rush ) and I was wondering if a carbon bar is worth it. Thanks
looks great! congrats!

I have to shorten and bleed the loop in the front brake line (I ride "moto" ) and
have my eye on blue self extracting crank bolts and rotors screws as well .
I would really like to get some blue shifter cable housing but other then Nokon's
(which are just tooo expensive and ) I haven't been able to find any .
I've had Panaracer tires with blue side walls on the bike but they looked too
out dated for the Rush .
The speedo is nice as it has an off set mount and puts it right over the middle of the stem
and leaves room on the bar to better position the controls and placing my hands in
an areo position when it's time to go Fast
Very Nice ccaddy- I have always loved the raw finish.
I did the same to my BB Raw,Jekyll Goodboy.......all Aluminium Gold anodized. bolts......
Looked great but i just didnt trust the Aluminium on high stress areas.....they also had Gold bolts in Titanium,but they were a greenish gold and didnt match the Gold Aluminium......
So i took a deep breath and went for a FULL Raw Titanium bolt upgrade......
Everythring..... rotor bolts,water cage bolts,chainring,callipers,shifter,lever,shock,fork ,shock mount,seat clamp,washers,cable clamp....Every bolt is Titanium..........
Some of these will look good as well in blue....
My rear mech Titanium,Jocky wheel,cable clamp,pivot bolts,carbon rear plate.Tiso aluminium drilled jocky wheels.....
The place that I get my blue anodized stuff has blue pulley wheels as
well but I just replaced one in my XTR and @ $50 , I want to use it for
a while before I swap it out .
What is the web address of the place you got your Ti parts ??
Scrol down to Cycle parts.......all the bolts are in Ali.Ti....many colors and types of thread,lengh etc.......
