    It's bronze ano. Standard medium. I've got a RS Vivid air damper for it and much of the rest of the build will be off my old Yeti - 2x9 x9 drivetrain, the new XT brakes and a Pace RC41 fighter fork though I do have half an eye out for some 36 floats. I want to try to keep the weight down enough so I can sensibly use the bike as my everyday ride.

    UPDATE

    well its been a few months and the bike spec has changed a bit since I put it up on the build thread. Many thanks to geetee for his help - so without ado here's the latest :



    Weight 32lbs - the Marz 55 RC3 is heavier than a 36 float but needs much less attention/servicing. Easton carbon handlebars and 1 x 9 keep weight down. Wheels are dt 4.2 rims with Aireal australia hubs (sadly no longer available ut I do love them).

    Hope you all like it!!

    Farfromthesurf failed to mention the best bit about the forks.
