My rig.

Designed nearly every aspect of it myself.

I started in Linkage X3 about 20 months ago. Moved into CAD eventually and designed nearly every aspect of it from the ground up.

The tubing is Reynolds 853, the dropouts are from Bear frame supplies and basically everything else I machined myself in my University's workshop.

I connected with a guy called Gael Baudou (Baudou bikes) who fabricated it for me once I had the design figured out and had machined all the parts.

It's been a tonne of work but so stoked with it.

This one is 470 reach, 65.8 head angle, 76.3 seat tube angle and 1220 wheelbase with a 140 fork.

Flip the flipchip and run it with a 160 fork and it's a 64.5 head angle and 75.0 seat angle. BB height stays the same.

Dropper is only 150mm currently - I think I need a bigger travel dropper to get the most out of the low standover!

HOLY SMOKES Eek

Shall follow on IG. Salute

Cheap??? It’s 1900 for a wheel set!

Why would you ever buy that when you can get a better hub on a We Are One for 900 less

Maybe cheap compared to their road shit? 303's are like $1500-1900 per wheel... crazy overpriced.

What do you wanna know Big Grin

I don't know the exact price of it, work as a bikemechanic so i got my bike cheaper.

I first thought of buying only the wheels and building them with onyx hubs but i wanted the quarq tyrewiz with them, so i have to build them with onyx sometime later this year. Sure the X01 Hubs arent the best but its working for now.
Other than that if i figure out that i can fit trickstuff maxima's on the bike i'll order them too.

Its not wasting money in my eyes, I fulfilled a dream with this bike. Weight is at about 14,2kg with a tube in the front atm.

Does anybody know a good clipless pedal? Should be light Big Grin

The best clipless pedal I’ve used is the Time Special 12. I wouldn’t class is as a super light pedal though. Think they are around 200g each

I'll hold this pedal in mind. They look nice and if i go to clipless i would take pedals that have a platform. I tried Crank Brothers Mallet E 2 years ago and sold them after 3 times of use because i forgot that i ride with them.

1st: Sick Bike- Bike way more expensive than the car- me liko.

Ive also got the Time Speciale 12 (the Speciale 8 are little bit lighter and cheaper)... The build quality is way better then the CB Mallets DH I tested from a friend and the cleat machanism Just feels way more refined and more secure.
