Man what a find! That is the kind of rarity that makes a build completely unique.

Question (due to my own lack of knowledge on the Tues frame generations)... are they both 650b? Is the older one 26"? I can't tell from the pics.

Thanks guys, i can't convey enough how special it looks & rides in real life.

Both are 650B. McGazza was the only one of the 4 team riders who chose to run 650B in 2015 at Rampage. Lacondeguy, Granieri and Zink all had 26" versions of this frame that year.

I've been tempted to spec it exactly as Kelly had it at Rampage with Marzocchi suspension and Shimano transmission but it would kinda be a downgrade from where i have it right now.

If i can somehow convince Hope to supply me with the same green hubs he ran then i will do a replica tribute stylee build with it.

Some detail of them all Here

I noticed in the stolen bike thread that the Cam Zink bike in that link was stolen from the owner in the US a few months ago. So if anyone is offered it....beware.

Kellys build detail Here

Your MK2 is one of the most well thought out colour collections on any bike. It'll be a long time for you to top it, no offense. The new one is also gorgeous, just that McGazza one is beyond special.

Much appreciated, with you being the OP on this thread i'm guessing you've seen your fair share of builds too. Thanks

thanks Shiny! the S8's and DH9's are still monsters on the trail! Which is why I still ride it! That and because the Small 2011 Jedi I bought to replace the S8 with just never felt comfortable on (and for sale). So when I'm not on the my Canfield Balance, I'm on the ol' Dinosaur

My very first DH build is coming soon... It's a joke compared to your builds, but hopefully it will still be easy on the eyes.

At the very least, I'm trying to keep it color-coordinated and unique. Laced up the wheels myself, and should be able to start assembling the drivetrain over the next few days. A mix-up of old and new components... hopefully it turns out nicely!

@christiaan That is gorgeous Drool color combo is on point. Enve wheels are too rich for my blood though lol

@shwinn8 Sweet build... even sweeter trail. That's what I wish I was doing now instead of sitting in an office.
