    I remember pics of it in the works, and it turned out awesome! Make sure to give us a review on those levers after you have some use on them.

    Its no titanium but I like the clean build, and at least the framecolor is grey-ish .
    No fancy stuff but things that work.
    Looks like you removed the Shimano gear indicators..
    Titanium or Bust !

    yea that was my goal nothing too fancy but everything still very functional. The final weight came out to be 22.5 pounds on the speedgoat builder and at the shop it was 22.5. Kinda weird right.

    What size frame, stem, bar?? How tall are you? What do you weigh?

    Just curious, as i think I am in need of fine tuning my riding position on my bike.

    Very very nice bike! I love it!

    I have to comment on 1 or 2 small touches, I agree with Didier about the red Avid flak jacket liners, they don't really match. Do I search, I remember some guys finiding some tubing exactly the same in differen colours. But I guesss the linning matches the FSA parts

    Also, those carbon patches on your gear indicators, I reccon you sohlud have cut round the edges instead of just right through the logo(hey, you asked for our thoughts!).

    Nice job though! I'd love ot build a bike up, but for now, I guess I will just have to do it part by part.

    around here in a while.
    Not overly ornate, looks like it is all business (the business of going fast).

    What do you think of the SID?
    Everyone seems to whine that they are too flexy but after you get use to them, just about every thing else seems spongy & sluggish on the climbs.

    The cousin to your XTC

    I couldn't resist posting a "cousin" to your great build - XTC's enjoyed a lot a popularity a few years back that has seemed to quiet down the past couple of years - so it's nice to see others again taking advantage of these "great value" frames.

    hey all,

    TOMMASINI -
    I have always liked that build. Around 19-20 punds right? I hope to get mine around 20.

    about the brake levers. I've only gotten about a mile on it so i still have to break in the ceramic pads and all to see their full potential. They are Tektro carbon eclipse levers. I can't remember exactly but I think I got them at airbomb.

    Same with the sid only a mile on the bike. One thing I really love for the street is the lock out. It makes the biggest difference.

    I'm gonna go on a ride today again just on the street to see how everything is going on it. I will post again.

    About 19 1/2 but those tires pictured are poser weenie tires.....

    I picked up those light tires a bit back when they were being blown out on ebay.....for $20 a pair I couldn't resist slapping them on to see how low the scale could go but they aren't good except for dry packed trails....everyday tires brings it to 20 1/2.

    Ritcheys

    NOS Ritchey WCS alpha bites @ 580 grams each - I picked up about 8 of these when they discountined more than 6 years ago - great tires with supple high tread count casing and interlocked center treads which are good for the hardpack and grassy trails I ride in - I'm not much of a mud rider so can't say how they do there.

    I just did a pretty good ride on the road today and with out the lockout on and sprinting i was getting some rubbing. I weigh 175 if that helps. I am guessing its comming from the brake pads and tires.
