    Another Wee Sleekit Beastie

    Hi,

    Another driech day in the North but every cloud has a silver lining. Over the last month there's been a steady stream of boxes arriving from the Gravity Sports boutique and here's the results:

    Another Wee Sleekit Beastie-helius-am-001.jpg

    All I need now is some time to get her built up.

    Thanks again Dipper for sorting everything out .

    That is the question! Pretty sure I'm going for the XT but need to decide whether it's to be 1x10 or 2x10 then order a chain guide to suit.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the final outcome as well but the bars aren't available until March so it won't be finished anytime soon .

    That was maybe the 'before' shot !

    Still short of a few critical parts before the build can commence In anger though.

    Don't worry the FR's safe and sound. It's a keeper .

    I bought a few iBeam saddles with the 'free' seat posts thrown in but I find them 'harsh' so I'm reverting back to railed saddles. Also the adjustable seat post was pinched from my FR so it needs a new perch.

    Pimp, you need to stop standing outside my office window, staring in! And whilst were on the subject, stop licking the windows as the cleaners are getting extremely p1ssed off about!!!

    Good spy but I was only the delivery boy. Forks are on DerekR's AFR.

    Yeah not all the parts are for the AM. Currently I'm repairing one, building one and waiting (impatiently) for one.

    You will like the Devilles,Mine are sweet.

    I like it when you have lots of new stuff.Fitting it is as much fun as buying it.

    Yeah I wander why????

    Wheels will be a pair of Hope Hoops with Stan Flows that I already have but that might change as I have my eyes on a lighter wheel set at the moment.

    What shock?....I think you can guess what shock I've ordered!!!! There's a clue on the front of the bike!!! The frame was also supplied with additional mounts for a 200x57mm shock so I can try out my CCDB. In addition I also have a 216x63mm RP23 on another bike so I'll be spoilt for choice but at least it'll let me experiment to see what works best.

    The quality of the Devilles is superb and I'm bursting to give them a try. It'll be interesting to see how they compare to my Fox Vans.

    Yeah building the thing is almost as much fun as riding it! Especially when the local woods are like a swamp .

    How come you decided on a AM to have as well as the FR? i have kinda played around with the idea myself but came to the conclusion they'd probably be too similar.
    Which bike are the totems going on?
    looking forward to seeing it (and the others) built as you do have a history of dam nice looking bikes! haha
