since I got the frame, fitted a shock, and then immediately got disabled for 3 weeks with an inner ear infection that started the day after I spent 3 hours polishing the frame. That was in January 2008. Yesterday on a whim I decided to build it to sell it to a guy who had a Rocky Mountain Ti-Bolt which I want in my collection. I test road it lastnight and after thinking it'd be too compact to fit me properly I found I could actually make it work without a dildo-length stem being needed.
As pictured its 30.0 pounds, and it rode ok enough with the DNM Backdraft shock that I might actually keep it afterall. I'm likely to change the bar and stem though if I should in fact keep it, and the shifters would go to thumbies, and different pedals and maybe move up to a Nevegal 2.35 DTC in back (currently its a 2.1 DTC). I think I'd like to find a different shock for it though, the chain torque induced bobbing in the granny ring is severe to put it mildly. I definitely would want some sort of platform valved shock. Also the adjuster on the shock which is supposed to just be rebound apparently affects the compression too annoyingly. Then there's the 15.25" BB height to adjust to, I certainly don't need to worry about striking the big ring with this bike. Probably too much effort for a single-pivot even if it the coolest one that's ever been made
