    My bike pics...67 & Steelhead

    I spent the day putting the two bikes together. I had the 67 built up a while ago with the Pike on it, but then I swapped the parts over to the Steelhead frame. I finally got all the parts to build up 2 complete bikes. I broke my leg on the Steelhead a couple months ago, so all I can do is look at them right now






    2004 Weyless 67 -
    150mm 66RC
    Progressive 5th Element CVT5
    8" Avid BB7, Speed Dial levers
    Race Face Evolve DH X-type
    Front wheel is a Double Track, rear is a Single Track (for now)
    Syncros Bulk 31.8 bars, Tioga Task Force stem, Sram X7 shifter/derailleur, MRP LRP
    Kore race pedals, Planet X seat

    2005 Azonic Steelhead -
    RS Pike SL
    8" Avid BB7, FR5 levers
    Race Face Evolve DH X-type
    Supergo Launch FR wheelset (rebranded Alex Supra-D's)
    High Roller Semi Slicks
    Ringle bars, Kore stem, Sram 3.0 shifter/derailleur (for now)
    Planet X pedals, Azonic Big Drop seat

    Really nice looking Steelhead...one of the nicer ones I've seen. Gives me motivation to get mine built.

    Wish I wouldve picked up a set of those Supergo wheels when they were going for 100 bucks...

    My friend just ordered a Steelhead off WheelWorld for like $180 for his graduation since Jenson ran out of them like 2 days before he ordered it.


    He also ordered a SS kit. Think bolton QR skewers will be enough to hold the wheel or should he go solid axle.


    I think the latter but would the QR be alright?

    I've really only ridden the Steelhead for a week or so, but I did have the QR slip once when I pedaled hard. After that I rigged up a nut and bolt spacer so that it can't slip forward in the dropouts. So maybe do something like that, or else just do bolt on axle. The QR alone doesn't quite cut it.

    Yeah, those wheels were a steal. I almost wish I bought another set for spares.

    The Weyless is a large, which is 20". I'm 6'2" and sometimes I wish I had gotten a Medium.
