    1056th my new SS thread

    I have very little use for the phrase "my $0.02" so I will Paypal my 2c (plus fees of course) to anybody who can give me the make and model of my frame. It's nothing special and nothing terrible, it's 1200gr and I've never seen one except for mine.

    bits:

    WI Eno/DT/mavic 517 ceramic rear wheel
    CK ISO/DT/mavic 221 front wheel
    WI eno freewheel/Dura-ace 15t fixed cog/surly lockring
    Middleburn rs7 175mm cranks w/uno 32t spider
    959 pedals, CK headset, WCS stem/seatpost
    Easton ec90 flat bar, Avid SD SL levers/brakes
    Avid flak jacket cabling, raceface BB
    White bros xc4 fork (stiff, simple, light, 80mm, V-only)

    forget anything? Rides fast, fun, SS. I have an exclusive bunch of SSs now. This thing goes very well on muddy or rough XC courses where all the squishy, shifty duallies fall apart or stop shifting !



    This picture may look odd in one place because I dodgily photoshopped out the manufacturer's sticker:











    Hurry up and come over 'Dre, I want to go for a ride !

    I bought it at their store in Clamart (Paris region) when I was over there. I was using bike shops as my guides for riding my road bike around and saw the frames there. Great price, good weight and seemingly OK quality so I bought one and carried it home strapped to my back. I built it up when I returned to Australia.

    I imagine, with the price, they would be fairly common in France.

    i live at about 20km of clamar, so i know this shop quite well
    Contruction of this frame is very similar to the khs alite4000 and viper (a belgium brand), same factory in the far east, and i didnt see any of them broken on the french board, but way too much inconfortable for me, regarding how ride my voodoo bizango
    middleburn UNO come also from clamar??

    The middleburn uno I got through the Australian distributor who is a friend of mine, my third set ! (of 'burn cranks, not friends).

    Thanks for the info about the frame mosquitos, the frame is made from Kinesium tubing which seems to be similar to some easton tubing but much cheaper ! This frame was 300 euros.

    thanks all for the kind words - as for parts, I'll have a look Need a pair of raceface turbine 175mm, compact drive, square taper, silver cranks in used, but otherwise perfect condition? How about this Pewter King Classic that my buyer has failed to collect? A brisa b20 20" trials bike? My garage runneth over.

    It does get dirty as well:
