I am disappointed that with the trickstuff brakeset, intend fork, belt driven gearbox that those were the best pedals to complete the package ????

Edit - what am I looking at for valve stems on this?

Don't know about the valves, but given the build, I'm guessing those are $300 HT AE03 pedals with a titanium spindle...not exactly piss poor. Cool build!

Hutchinson, as the tires?

Love this bike. Love purple and deep carbon wheels. Looks likes a monster truck.

Should have a glossy fork though, then it would be perfect.

Has this one been posted? I don't like the cranks, but apart from that, nice looking bike.


Hey...those are awesome cranks. I for-goed many a dental filling for those. Lol
Here's my problem with the eewings. They look super cool in the box and in your hand, but not many bikes wear them well IMHO. In this case, I would expect black cranks.

This thing is pretty much perfect IMO.

Not on this build. It's my modern interpretation of a 90's Fat Chance Yo Eddy that I could never afford growing up. At the very beginning it had black XTs. It was not a sexy look. Lol

I'd like to polish the eeWings up instead of the brushed finish they have, but absolutely no time at the moment.

Overall, lovely. I know external cables aren't sexy, but they're hidden well on this build. So much easier to work on too. Those fork decals need changing though.

I am mostly annoyed by the fact that have seemed to cut up a regular Kingdom frame and welded in a Pinion mount. Would be nice if they had just used full length chainstays instead of cutting half of the yokes.

Great looking bike, nice build that hasn't gone OTT with coloured parts, and a well-taken pic tup
Rear valve may be about 3mm off centrally aligned with tyre logo though? Razz

I think if they where the oil slick ones with a silver or black ring to break the colour up they would look great. Such a nice bike though and not really anything wrong imho
