    My Red Reken Build

    Just wanted to share my recent Reken build. This replaces an old Bike Nashbar frame and is a mix of new and old components.

    Frame: 20" Sette Reken
    Fork: 2011 Rockshox Tora TK
    Shifters: Shimano Deore
    Front Derailleur: Shimano LX
    Rear Derailleur: Shimano XT
    Brake Levers: Avid Single Digit 5
    Brakes: Avid Single Digit 5
    Crankset: Shimano LX
    Bottom Bracket: Shimano ES-51
    Cassette: Shimano Deore
    Headset: Cane Creek S-3
    Handlebars: Topo XC 220
    Stem: Ritchey Pro
    Saddle: WTB Speed V Comp
    Seatpost: RaceFace Ride
    Wheels: Shimano LX hubs w/ DT Swiss X450 rims
    Pedals: Forte Campus
    Tires: Continental Traffic

    It weighs about 28 pounds so it's pretty heavy but it's all the bike I need at the moment. When the rims wear out I'll invest in something a little lighter. Needless to say I had a great time and learned a huge amount by building this up.

    Thanks for looking!

    Well, I've done about 75 miles miles so far and it's great! I changed out my largest chainring for a 48t for riding longer distances.

    Looks good! I really like that red. I'm also glad to see I'm not the only one still rocking the rim brakes.

    Great looking bike! (looks just like mine, with different components here and there) I put together my Red Reken almost two years ago. Very happy with it. They are great frames but as you see they make you a component upgrade addict...join the club!
