    Where are my Vassago Bretheren???

    I know there are alot of you out there so post them up! I would love to see some build black label frames and of course your light weight Jabber builds. Fished building mine just before Christmas. Not sure when a new wheelset will appear but that is about the only other mod I am looking at doing at this point. I figure the wheel build I want will shed about a pound which will make me really happy! Current weight as pictured with winter tires and my heavy seat is 21.4. With the summer tires and carbon saddle it brings it down to about 20.25 or so, less if I pull the barends (but I love'm and the keep ending up back on the bike)

    2013 Optimus Ti

    Here is my new 2013 Optimus Ti. Build this up this past month, and I have to say I love this bike.

    Here is my Verhauen, just built it up this past weekend. Swapped most of the drivetrain over from my last bike, picked up some Stans Arch EX wheels (needed the 142x12 & 15mm compatibility my other wheels didn't have) and an X-Fusion Slide 29 from Vassago as well. Build went together slick, bike handles so well and geometry is dialed (for me).

    Surprised that there are only a couple posts on here. Guess most guys don't venture outside of their normal thread sections. Love the Opt Ti and seriously looking at doing the VerHauen in the next year if I don't take the plunge and go custom with a CocoNino. Not much changed on mine in the past year or so. Been thru a couple different brake set ups but running XT's now. On a different bar as well, Answer 720 w/ 20 sweep. Actually love them. Not as severe as the Mary's and way lighter! Carbon of course. Swapped the seat out for the SLR that was on my road bike and I think that's about it. Sold my light race wheels because I was just too damn paranoid about riding them and having them break. Been on the same Velocity VXC w/ White Ind hubs since the first day I built this bike and they are still rolling strong!

    Pic of the bike with all the fall colors was taken last week (pink grips are off...was easier to slip them on to try the new bar but since I like the bar I put my black ones on). Other pic is of the bike early spring with my other wheels on it and what not.

    Just picked up a Bandersnatch, going to run it 1 x 10 with a rigid front fork and 29+ front tire for a little cushion.

    I'll post pictures when I get it built up.
