I love the red!
Did you get that done by Knolly or somewhere else? And if somewhere else did you start with a raw frame?
I am also interested on your thoughts on how the 1x10 gearing rides. I have been looking into that recently, with the same gearing, and I'm not sure I would like losing my granny gear for where and how I ride (long sustained, sometimes, steep climbs).
I like the red too. But if you are going for ghetto street (nothing but the headbadge), you need to take those stickers off the FOX fork. I like it

It was originaly raw but i had the front powder coated by a local company and I polished the rear. I was able to save the head badge but the decals were toast. I was ridding a 1X9 for the longest time without any real problems getting up hills with the 34 in the rear but the 36 on the 10 spd cassette makes a big difference, a very low gear. Before i made the leap a couple of years ago i locked out my front derailure for a couple of rides to see if i could manage with just one ring up front.
got this built by the path bike shop

how do you like the vivid
Lovely bikes indeed!
I'm a little confused though - the medium frames, some have a top tube brace some don't. Is this to do with year? Pre 2010, the med's have no brace and thereafter they do? Can someone clarify this for me please.
Size small and medium frames do not have the brace. Size large and anything bigger do

I am also curious about your drive train set-up. I've been looking at the Hammerschmidt for a while now. How has it changed the way you ride?
Where and how do you ride? I ask because then I can compare to where and how I ride being that I'm on an XL Delriium.
well the hammerschmidt is so nice to have. it shifts whenever you want to shift even when you are not pedaling. and also the hammerschmidt will be in aligned with any teeth or the rear drivetrain. my set up for the hammerschmidt is 22 - 36. so lets say. i can be on a 22 T front and 36 t rear, to a 36 T front and 36 T rear. any any combination in a flick of the front shifter.

Reminds me of my whole winter. Great looking Delirium. Those Arachnids look DEADLY! I know it's $, but yuou could reduce the chainslap by going to a small or medium cage RD. It might be a Med cage already, just looks long. Studly build!
