just bought this

picture of the taniwha how i bought it straight from the ad

Already have or have ordered these:
crank brother stamp pedals in raw
Enve M7 bar 35mm clamp 25mm rise
Trickstuff direttisima levers in raw with lime lever
29" lowers for the diamond
I9 29" front wheel

plan on ordering:
Intend Grace En stem in raw
Push ELEVENsix

Will be toning down all the colors, new front wheel is all black spokes, rear wheel will be replaced with all black spokes. New lowers for the forks are black so deciding on if i should paint the crown black or strip it raw or if i should strip the lowers raw too.

Direttisima levers will be paired to the MT7 calipers but they are on a 6 month wait so it will be a bit.
will probably replace the reverb too but we will see

also planning on having the bike either painted this winter or stripped to raw carbon and clear coated

Small update Smile got the new dropper post on the way, went with a OneUp 150mm, which will be paired with a WolfTooth lever, still can't decided how ever on what AMS frame guards I want though, thinking either clear or zebra pattern lol Book

Also got the decals on, they were *suppose* to have been in 3rds but I'm kind of digging the off norm look, and no I didn't do that lol was a mix up at the shop Confused lol.

I also had the rear brake cables length adjusted, looks Way better Big Grin .

I was also leaning towards clear, especially on the downtube lolz lol , how ever, that will be put on after the builds finished with the dropper etc as the weather is going to start to get nasty here shortly Eek ... and taking photo's in Bad weather sucks.....lighting wise anyway lolz Cool

Yeah deffo for the downtube otherwise will look cluttered.

Yeah apparently we have beast of the east weather beginning in Oct onwards for a sustained winter.

Just after my new build will be done ffs!

It's a HT right? Perfect for slapping some boggy UK turns with. I'm looking forward to to some good mud, the flatter local trails get way harder and more fun in the wet. Just too easy in the dry sometimes

Yes indeed it will be a ht and yes muddy stuff is rewarding.

Snow meh just messes with gearing and brakes/suss etc

Another update Razz .

Just got my OneUp 150x30.9mm Dropper! and a Wolftooth lever Eek Beer


Tomorrow as of posting this, I should be heading out to a park out in zeh boonies to take some scenic photos etc, as at this point the bike is finished, as far as I am concerned, if anything, I still need to get the frame protection, but as it is, it's done.

So! enjoy the incoming Awesomeness when I post the new, finished photo's/Eye~candy Drool lol

Aight! Its all done Big Grin Literally 1 year in the making piecing this build out Eek lol , but its finally done Beer .

Note that these photo's were shot using 2 different camera's a Canon EOS Rebel T7i, with a 18x135mm lens and then a Samsung NX500 with a 16x50mm lens.

Just an FYI if you wonder why the color maybe different per photo. I also cherry picked these from my little outing to a state part with the bike today so pretty much have been doing nothing but going through all the photo's today Eek .

Here's my Stash of the uploaded photo's incase anyone wanted to see them in there largest format 6k+ res lol Eek lol https://sta.sh/21hggakacot4?edit=1

Canon T7i. All photo's were done in Manual Mode Eek

NX500. Full Auto/HDR


Still getting use to these fancy arsed camera's lol lol

Small update.

Changed the routing for the front brake cable, it seemed out of place somewhat being on the outside of everything else Book Beer .
