    2005 MC Stumptown Redux

    It all started with a frame set from my buddy Kail. I've been sitting on this for while trying to decide how to build it up. Since this would add yet another bike to the quiver, I had to make this one a fun build and unique.

    I have a road bike, 3 29ers and my Major Jake cross bike so this makes bike #6.

    I will also chronicle the build on FB, to help bring photos across to this forum.
    You will need the join the group...I am only using it to load up pictures to cross post here...whatever

    What sort of tire clearance do you think that bike has?

    Looks sweet...

    I think the fork would look good with the same color as the frame.

    Man, how could you ruin a perfectly good original paint job like that?! The tan/brown was a classic. To each his own I guess. Actually I recently painted an old MC Moho a blue similar to that color. It is one of the few Moho STS's that has disc brake tabs, so before it was painted I ground off the brake post mounts so now it's disc-only. Suppose you could've done that with the ST. It's good to see ST's out there, regardless of color I guess
