    X-Post from 29er: Something tells me I`m into...

    something good...

    Merry Christmas Freaks...

    it took a long time but now we`re done, ready to be my one christmas present, made from myself...

    I have the frame for some month but had problems with finding the riight parts and after that we had some problems with the cranks and the brake cables..

    But here he is...

    Some of my friends name their bikes with girls names like Gina, Gladys or Edeltraut...

    As none of my bikes has names yet I thought I might start with this oone...

    He is called Heinz-Herrmann, and yes, that sounds funny in german as well...

    I don`t know the weight because I`m not interested in that...




















    Fell free to tell me your opinion, not that I`d care that much, because I love it like this...

    I have it since yesterday, and will hopefully have time to testride it the next days...can`t wait to...

    Pimp

    Eric,

    As said before, this a very very nice ride! You're the PIMP ; )

    One question: the disc rotors you're using, are they the standard The Cleg rotors? I only have seen discs with smaller and fewer holes ....... The ones you're using seem nicer though.

    Thanks,

    with the rotors...

    I don`t know, there are two versions of the Cleg, the FR and the DH, mine is the FR Version, the rotors came with the brake, nothing extra...

    The looks of that brake in hand is great, the lever is very fine too, and I hope the ride will be the same...

    Stunning!

    Everything about her is top dog. I've never heard of those brakes before.

    Your photography is good too!

    Outstanding build! It appears cleaner than the average, already clean single speed build for some reason. Great job!

    Wow, how can anyone say anything bad about this beauty?
    Using a 46T ring is different, that is for sure. Congratulations on a super nice ride!
