Thanks. I outsource the heat treatment to a company near my workshop. They are the service providers for KTM in India. I've been friends with them for 15+ years, they help me with my projects !

Thank you. In India if you want to get parts for a road bike, you can walk into a store and come out having purchased the most high end road bike on the planet. I've seen guys splurging 10 to 12k or sometimes even more on road bikes. Stupid expensive ceramic speed pulleys sell like hot cakes
BUT if you're a mountain biker getting an entry level suspension is a pain in the ass. Complete bikes specced with rock shox recon ( High end MTBs . Low end bikes are with suntour xcrs) are more common. After market parts for MTBs are non existent.

I'm trying to change that BTW! Hopefully i succeed

I think i preferred your earlier frame nicolai esque frame from a purely aesthetic perspective. But this frame still looks so dialed, and seems much more practical for day to day. Really impressive work.

Thanks! I love that frame too! But most people here in India, prefer this new one, probably because it looks a lot more 'familiar' to them

Hello,

Some changes on my bike. I changed the wheels for 29in, new fork, and a new chain tensionner.
The previous one wasn't rigid enough.
Very happy with the result !
