    Sexy Cove STD

    Just helped build this up at Grassroots Cycles the other day. And IT'S FOR SALE, could be yours for the right price Wish it was mine. Sorry the pics aren't super good. Don't quite do this bike justice.

    Thanks, im bummed with how the pics came out though. This bike is so badass in person. Youre eyes are just drawn to it, it's so fricken clean. Ive been looking at this frame on the wall for a long time now and to see it built looks soooo good. I rode it around the block, now i just wish i could talk the guys at Grassroots into letting me demo it or maybe we could get a demo from them

    Other then the long cables and the seat angle looking a tad uncomfortable it is nice looking.

    That fork really matches up nice w it.

    Man the cables look long because the wheel is turned, and most dh and fr bikes have seat angles like that.

    Very nice, only thing worth a change is 1.5" totems over the reduced ones fitted.

    The fork belonged to a local guy, he brought it by to sell it so it was available and cheap. Didn't have to order one in. The thing is brand new, he just didn't need it.

    The Stroker Aces are phenomenal brakes. If you hadn't had the chance to ride them, you are missing out. I always hated Hayes for a variety of reasons, but once ride on the Aces and I was sold. Swapped out my Maguras the same week. So much control with those brakes, made me a faster rider no joke, because I can charge into a corner faster knowing that I can slow down on a dime.

    You should have bought the Cove T-Bag . . . way sexier. Although, the Cove Vag-Wart is much less flexy.

    Nice bike btw.

    Yeah it's a sick shop for sure. James is the guy with his back facing me in the picture. He is the manager/bike supertech/trailbuilding genius. I don't really work there, Im just there all the time and help out. It's definitely shop that's geared more towards riding on dirt. It's kinda known as the AM/FR/DH shop here locally

    That's a beautiful build. All it needs is an Elka, right 8664?


    The STD with an Elka is just amazing. There's a big berm I've hit many times that is chewed to bits with braking bumps and baby heads sticking out. I usually just hold on and wait for my kidneys to be punished. After installing the Elka and torching that same berm I had to stop and go back to make sure someone hadn't repaired/smoothed it out.

    Back to that build...love it.
