    Here's some shot's of my crank's. They are Morati titanium crank's with a carbon fiber bash guard and chainring. The bolt's are alloy but I'm changing them to purple. Engraved into the bash guard is KU'U 'ANELA O NA KILAKILA MAUNA. If you look the O is a 3/4 carat emerald and so is the apostrophe for 'ANELA. The second apostrophe for KU'U will be a orange sapphire. The paint is by house of kolor and is one of their kameleon paint's.

    I hope you're done building that thing by July 4th. I can't wait to see it covered in mud!

    Update

    Here's some pictures of what she looks like now. The seat collar is temporary and I'm going to change the headset to a Cane Creek 110 in purple. I'm not sure if I'm leaving the water bottle cage either. As is she's about 12.75 lbs. When done I think she'll weigh no more than 15.5 lbs.

    Um, so, yeah, it's a nice 'build' and everything but when will we see some 'Action Shots'? Or is this just a 'Museum Bike'?

    Seriously... it's a VERY NICE BUILD - don't be offended; I jus' want to see the machine in action. I mean, c'mon, it's like having an order of Hanama'ulu Cafe crispy-chicken and only looking at it - gotta grind'em too!

    Trust me she will be ridden. I'm going to do my brakes this week end and hopefully by next friday I'll be taking her on her maiden voyage up towards blue hole. Actually I hope its raining so she can get real dirty. Also the wheels you see on her now are for rides on the bike path at Lydgate or Kealia. I have a set of CK's with a more aggresive tire on it for every day riding.

    You gotta come back out to the West side and grind up the trail from Kekaha with us again. I'd love to try a roll up the mountain with 15lbs under me instead of 37. Coming down... not so much.

    Here she is with the brakes on. I also threw on the cranks real quickly for a picture and didnt even notice they were on the wrong side. It was just for a quick picture to get an idea of what she'll look like done.
