    Red Reken

    Work in progress:




    Will eventually be a 1x9 with SRAM drivetrain. Fork is a lowered (100mm) RS Revelation. Wasn't sure of the gold / red motif, but once I got it put together, I like it.

    1x9 is pretty sweet way to go. I have a 1x8 and I love it.

    Very clean build. Really like the red/gold.
    I just built up a black Reken, and I love the ride. Great frame for the money.
    What size frame?

    Will post some updated pics soon. I just need to pick up the stem from REI. I finished it off with Salsa 32T ring, BBG bashguard sandwich, X9 derailleur and shifter, and an SRAM XO cassette. It rides very nice - quite a difference from my Flite (which also rides nice, just more brute force required). I will have to weigh it, but it seems like low 20# range.

    Size is 18"

    Finished...






    Finished off with X9 rear deraill and shifter, Avid BB7 brakes, Sun Equalizer rims, and a BBG bash sandwich.

    Rides very nice, much like the Schwinn S series it replaced. A perfect match for big brother the Sette Flite.
