The Ellsworth is coming along. Lefty Speed DLR with project321 adapter steer tube. Lefty wind front hub with Bontrager rim DT spokes laced and trued by me. Now I just need another stem handlebar grips and front brake. And we are good to go.
I figured that this would fit here.
Its a dream bike for me, an Ellsworth Truth from early 2000. I had to change some parts out and figured I would do so with a twist. So it has a Lefty on it, as you can see. The rest of the parts for it is on its way and it will be done soon.

Yes, RaceFace first go at using carbonfiber in cranks. They are cool. Remember the RaceFace Northshore XS cranks? Those are the same cranks but they were left solid instead of the hollowed out section with the carbon fiber inlay.

I always like Leftys, this is the third one I own. I think it looks great on the Ellsworth.

Twenty years ago, in 1999, my dad bought himself a brand new Marin Shoreline Trail as he was really into mountain biking at the time. This was the most he had ever spent on a bicycle and it was a really big deal (I remember his and my mum's bikes living in their bedroom for a while). Dad still maintains that this bike was the best bike he'd ever owned; the fit was perfect, spec was spot on and he'd made a couple of personal additions that made it his ideal bicycle. While on holiday in France on a caravan site near Disney someone, or someones, came onto the site and stole mum and dad's bikes, and in spite of going to the local police they were unable to get them back. Insurance paid out and the bikes were replaced, but they weren't the same. It wasn't the red Shoreline Trail with the foam grips that had been the best bike dad had ever owned. Since getting into mountain biking myself (for around the last ten years) I have been on the hunt for a red Shoreline Trail, keeping a saved search on ebay, checking gumtree, pinkbike, forums and all sorts. About four years ago (ish) I found a frameset, bought it and was ready to get it built up as a present for dad, but that too got stolen! Since then I've been checking online on a daily basis, just trying to find what I was looking for. About three months ago one popped up on ebay; a 1999 Shoreline Trail frameset in red, even with the correct forks, original shock and period correct stem. I had to have it! I've spent the last month or so getting this bike built up; sourcing an awkward sized seat post, setting up front gears (what are front gears?!) and making sure it's spot on. Today is my dad's birthday and this is going to be hands down the best present I've ever given him; a 1999 Marin Shoreline Trail, identical to "the best bike I've ever owned".
