    Just thought i would post a few pics of this on the forum...

    George Ryan put his ride up for sale a few weeks back and my brother jumped on it. It was exactly what he needed for the coming season.

    So fresh...we did some stuff to make it his own...very nice and aprox 33 lbs















    its a custom day

    seven springs here you come... go to a c-dale dealer near you and ask for cable stops so you don't have to run zip ties.

    ps. SICK BIKE!

    thanks, it's actually my younger brothers bike and yes he was painting the fork...we like things stealth around here.

    7 springs for sure, but you will see this bike all over the place this summer....we have grand plans including whistler

    yeah the color of this bike is one of my favorite on a bike...it totally 'pops' in person i tried to show that in the pics...

    its a hard color to photograph, you need low light and no sunlight

    sweet, i almost got blue i9 instead of my red.

    and looks like white i9 hubs?

    would be tits if i9 made a full white wheelset (hubs and spokes)
    im sure many would sell, even though i wouldnt buy a pair :)

    I'm wondering if you can check something... at full bottom out, how close does the rear wheel come to the seat tube?

    Do you have pictures of the bike before you painted the fork? I remember it looking good, but can't find the post anymore.
