Love the black and white shots.

Do you race? Is that why you have the Dura-Ace RD and (I'm assuming) road cassette?

What is this spreadsheet from Santiago you used?

Beautiful shots of a beautiful machine.

Fantastic Bike,Fantastic Pics!!!

Just one question...That is the first time I have seen someone use a Dura-Ace RD on a Mtb. Why??



Edit: what Cogs are u using....That Cassette looks like some of the "Corncob" Cassettes I've seen on a lot of road bikes.

Cassette is D/A. Or at least that's what the lockring says. Road components are used on many DH rigs because of the warp speed gearing.

Gorgeous bike BTW.

Damned if I know. Where have you been looking?

Seriously, I'm gonna agree with bmalmquist's explanation because it sounds cool. In general, road stuff is shorter, lighter, snappier. Cassette is close ratio (11-23) because that's all that's required.

I would say there's a pretty good chance that the answer to that question is probably no, mister funny picture guy.

I dont think Gastro is the grudge holding type. He does however hold a bush ax.

Kids, here's a lesson for you. Stay in school and even you too can one day have a beautiful playbike like this. That is just hotness. The bike is hot and the pics are hot.

PS - I see the Barbie tassles didn't make it into the final build.

29.7 lbs. not counting mud from today. There's room to go lighter but I felt like I'd start sacrificing stiffness.
