FYI - If you do plan to ride it lots, do not fit Crank Brother's pedals to it.

Great frame. The build looks a bit bizarre. It looks like a rad set up for some of the classic trails. Like the Otago Rail Trail. Definitely needs different tires if this is for mountain biking.

The brakes look awful.

Kudos for buying an Ibis though. Lush.

Nice colour for a bike, handy when out there racing because it will be seen from a mile away. I am just about finished a single speed build. I bought a S-Works Epic frame to be used as a spare if i damaged the 27 speeder but decided to build a single speed. Serious dollars spent here. Frame $5000 approx, Cross-Max ST wheels, Schwalbe Rocket Ron tires, Titanium rear gear, O.T.A jockey wheels, Hollow pin chain. FSA carbon crank-n-32 chain ring. XCR stem-n-high rise bar. DT swiss XRC carbon fork. DT swiss rear shock with remote lock-out, Egg beater 3 pedals. Alero carbon seat post with Prologo seat. Hayes stoker carbon disc brakes. 8.5kgs at the moment but with another $3000 could get it under 8kgs, Sl Crossmax wheels, crankbros 11 pedals carbon seat and some maxxis tires and change the rear shock for the Dt swiss carbon 190.
