    I'm impressed with your powers of reserve. I have no patience. I would have had all the parts assembled in little stages as I received them. Unless I purchased all the parts at once, I would never be able to take such a cool photo.

    Anxious to see the final completed project.

    That picture is just brilliant!
    Congrats on the new ride, man! The orange Guapo looks absolutely killer, if I was on the market for a new bike now, that would be it!

    Thank you guys! Picture was shot with all the parts being layout on the floor with natural light coming in from the left and reflectors on the right.

    I waited close to 3 months to consolidate all these parts, started with the frame. Yeah I have been testing my own patience every single day!!! Not helping at all when I'm constantly watchin LifeCycles and NWD videos and surfing the internet on everything MTB...

    It is a new old stock RS Steel Domain that I got it really cheap, no this one does not belongs to the batch that is plagued with failing sanctions.

    Built

    Nice shot.

    I keep all parts in one place so as not to lose any, attached to the frame.

    Yeah, your friend was the illest.. so much work, that whole rig had a high polish on it

    Bet it looked cool w/o stickers. Wish I could've seen it in person.

    Oh that purple one he built for a friend-- he is a die hard supporter for the Titus distro here
    ...just last week I saw him built another just as sick-- bright fluoro pink custom pink EG, for himself


    Yea but pbreath's was the first I seen that literally screams out "Ride me"
