Seshin Megatron

*** SCROLL DOWN FOR NEW PHOTOS***


Just built this up on New Years Eve:

Its a Seshin Megatron, with a 21.5" top tube, 13.65" rear end, 74.5° HT. Black Pearl with 8 clear coats.

I threw it together with most of the parts from my blue Macneil. Argyle Dirt Forks, FSA Orbit headset, Animal Stem, Macneil 9-Butted bars, 14mm Hazard hubs, 48H Hazard lite wheels, 33/12 LSD gearing, Fly Suelo brakes etc.

So far It feels REALLY responsive compared to my old frame, which was slightly bigger overall.
Its going to take a few good sessions to adapt to this short rear end though.

I absolutely cannot wait to take this thing to the skatepark to see how it feels.

I painted the Argyle on my Dirt forks last year, when they were on a blue bike. Not sure what I'll do with this new black colour scheme..

...and Fly's Suelo brake is their non-angled front brake. Still forged/machined lightweight goodness.

I like the frame. Nice, cheap, and good.

Did you pre-order the Seshin? Seeing they just released them.

Yep. I've been waiting for a decent 21.5" frame for a while. They sold out of Ligers a while back, so I got one of the first Megatrons.

You don't really get them anywhere... only from their website.

I like the blue, but the seatclamp does stick out a little bit.

Seat clamp sticks out a bit? I'll buy a new one when this one strips.

..the saddle is an old hard foam Specialized MTB model. Its a bit ripped, but the rails are still straight.

Edit: Just picked up a brand new Odyssey Sr. Kevlar, for $15!!! It looks tiny compared to the old one.

seat looks fine to me. Yeah, just get a low-profile clamp. My premium clamps pretty good; it has a steel insert so it will never strip.

I didn't even notice the seat. I want the shadow clamp... it looks cool.

Okay, so I replaced the big Specialized saddle with the Ody Sr.
However, it looked really out of place when run so high (ass hatchet anyone?).. so I had to lower it.

What do you mean?
Its brand new.
Not a scuff on it, and the rails still had black paint on them.

Are you referring to the excess material stapled under the nose of the saddle?
