    This beauty belongs to a Go-Ride local customer. It has been coming together for a couple weeks. Finally rounded up all the bits and pieces, and here she is, in all her majesty. . .








    The build started with a Blue Chrome Intense M9 Frame
    Add in a Kashima Coat Fox 40
    and then the rest of the bits. . .
    Shock: Fox DHX RC4
    Headset: Cane Creek AngleSet
    Bars: Deity Blacklabel
    Stem: Deity Fantom Direct Mount
    Grips: Deity Classic
    Brakes: Saint 810
    Post: Gravity
    Saddle: SDG
    Cranks: Shimano Saint
    Guide: e.13 LG1+
    Ring: e.13 Ring
    Pedals: Point One Racing
    Shifter: Shimano Saint
    Derailleur: Shimano Saint
    Wheels: Deemax
    Tires: Maxxis Minion UST 2.5

    Originally the plan was to have the links custom painted in yellow, and add on the yellow Deemax wheels. When the frame showed up and we saw how cool it was with the silver links, we just had to go with it. Made a few minor adjustments in the spec, and came up with this. Not too shabby.
    (We were too excited to ride it to bother with cutting down the brake lines. Don't worry, we will get to it)

    Beautiful bike, but at least you could cut the brake lines down a bit.

    Comes in at 39.5lbs. It will have a ti spring shortly, and yes, the brake lines will be shortened.
