    White with a Touch of Red

    You all know I work for CHUMBA, so I built up an AM rig and wanted to share with you all.

    She has: White Syncros stem 90mm, White Syncros handlebars, and White Syncros rims laced to Hope hubs. Went with a 20mm Pike Coil with Maxle. Full XT drivetrain. Avid Juicy 7 brakes w/ 185mm rotors. Thomson Laidback post. White Ritchey Saddle. DHX 09 Air. Kenda Nevegals. Red King headset w/ matching Red CHUMBA Lock-on grips.

    Imo, strong enough for light freeride, light enough for XC.

    It will be mine for awhile -- however, my 55 ATA and DHX coil is still waiting for me.

    White CHUMBA Saddles on their way ... maybe we should anodize our new seat collars also?

    Nah, that's a medium cage derailleur in the granny ring and smallest cog. My XCL is also set up with a medium cage (SRAM X9 in my case). Normal for that setup - you'd never use that gear combo.

    Nice build Alan! I could never get away with a white bike - it'd get too dirty too quickly.

    What a gorgeous bicycle!

    It's got an all business, form follows function simplicity that I find really appealing, visually at least.

    It looks like it could get pounded through he!! by a demon and not even get dirty!

    I do like my full susser, but I suspect I'd LOVE that one.

    The clamp is a jewel-like bit too.

    White Seatpost

    Hey,

    A Wet White WCS Ritchey Seatpost is on the water as we speak. It would look great on this bike. I want too get one for my VF2. You have a great looking bike!

    Almost as nice as mine ...

    Enter the COW.
    This is the most amazing bike I ever had (and I had many...)
    It has the most amazing suspension - plush, active, and handles like a dream. Tough enough for FR, but pedals like an XC-Trail bike.

    It's great. Had one on my previous bike also . Actually it's the best upgrade one could have on any bike. I don't have any experience with other adjustable seat posts but the concept itself is great.
