That looks really nice.
What is it?

Nice. Two rings and double pot brakes? Rather like the gold bit.
The 2 rings are due to the hills round here and I like the brakes – brakes & wheels came from the old bike.
Plan A was the TR Alloy in Black & Gold JP Special Style but this was a good deal and the colours seem to work. Amazed by the weight really but it does feel light and the spec sheet is fairly good.Posted 4 years agowreckerMember
It is a lovely thing. Did you get a good deal on the frame?Posted 4 years ago
Where do you live then Mike? I’ve ridden all over the UK with 1×10. In fact, it’s been a revelation and has really improved my strength.
At 14st6, I couldn’t get on with the 34s especially as I do a few uplift days. They weren’t quite man enough for me.
I think you made the best decision vs the TR alu. SC carbon is really special IMHO.
Living in Tassie, rode 1×9 with 36 all over Oz and some of UK. Currently not in the shape to do it, new setup is 28/39 so should be good. I’m also better at lower cadence which leads me to run a slightly bigger front ring anyway so 2×10 was the default choice.
Got a 4 day race in January with some cruisy stages so I will appreciate the choice of gears then.
I still have a heckler with 1×9 and 160mm 55’s for some gravity stuff and a DH bike will replace that eventually. This was a conscious decision to go for a Trail/AM bike not an AM/More bike.
The deal is a private conversation between me and the man in the shop 😉Posted 4 years ago
after the sneak peak last week it’s done 🙂 Obligatory weight without pedals or dropper post 😉 coming in at 12.69kg/28lb. Under 29lb with the Lev Fitted, 66 Degree Head Angle and 160mm up front.
Shake down ride tomorrow
Certainly turned all the heads while I was finishing the build in the shop this afternoon.Posted 4 years ago
