RS Psylo SL w/20mm thru axle.

Bunch of parts I had laying about.

Thomson stem, Race Face cranks, LX brakes...etc.

Ionic Johnny Rotten frame, Surly Karate Monkey fork. Avid discs pulled by Paul Love levers. WTB laser disc lite hubs/Mavic xc317 hoops. Titec Ti stem, generic ti post and seat. Azonic DW risers, ODI Oury lock on grips, King headset. Race Face Taperlock Ti BB, FSA Afterburner crank with a Salsa ring. King Kog in the rear, SRAM SS chain. Ti BOX pedals. Tires change depending on the ride. Weighs 22 pounds.

Currently needs two new spokes/nipples on the front wheel. I've not ridden it in a month or two, since I've been too lazy to fix that yet.....just been riding the other bikes instead.

I think MSRP is like $600, but he has a DJ3 and an avid mech, and maybe some other stuff, on his.

There isn't one other than they're (usually) lighter and less complicated to fix / maintain.
They just happen to be trendy right now.
