Nice build! Should make a very nice play bike. I like the Hope bits.

Just be careful with that saddle bag. It will rub off the coating on the seatpost.

 

EDIT: Okay, that bag and bottle cage should actually not even be on the bike.

yeah yeah I know very unkool but out trial riding I have no wish to be stuck with a flat so carry tube, bomb, etc and I generally ride solo so wtf ... and the bottle cage well I don't like/neither own a camelback and don't like dehydrating so what other options are there?

 

Apparently Hope are going to be making/machining cranks now, perhaps to pick up where Raceface left off? well anyway for now I am sorted, and now all I need is some CC overspend recovery time!
