The Terremoto Tribute Sled
As mentioned in this thread:
El Terremoto Shock - RP23 & HV Can?
Here it is all set up and ready to ride. The only things I changed were the pedals, new Purgatory 2.4 GRID tires (set up tubeless), and I put on some 29" Sunline bars I had lying around, Brian always preferred a narrower 27" bar. The saddle is an a$$ hatchet, and I am not a huge fan of the I-Beam system on AM bikes, especially the carbon post so I will be replacing that with a Thomson. I also have some X-9 shifters here in my box I will most likely install, but will wait for some matchmaker clamps to do so.
What do you guys think? A awesome bike, and a fitting way to celebrate my friend by riding it into the ground! Maiden dirt voyage for me will be tomorrow.
Nicely done, I shudder at the "Narrow 27" bars thought, (It's all I have) but awesome, ride it hard for both of ya.
"Before D.W., "anti-squat" was referred to as pedal feedback."
Looks like it's ready for a little VOAZ & lower Cheese. See you around Noon.
I don't know either of those trails, but ok. See you at noon!
This bike rules, bottom line. I used to love my 575, but now I realize what a noodle it was in the rear end. I forgot how much fun a capable bike could be!
Easy the Tribe might hear you.
is turning a big gear
I'd be nervous riding with that short front brake line... I'm sure that was probably replaced later.
