Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

very fancy build. How do the rotors work with heat? When I was in Taiwan I saw a small stand where the guy had ceramic buttons set in a carbon disc.

I think you need to up the gold high lights. A gold chain, full gold seat binder, gold bottle cage bolts. I'm thinking you need something different for the hydraulic lines. Metallic gold lines woulden suit the rough metal of the frame though. Maybe dark grey hose instead of black?

The original plan was for the frame to be painted a Navy blue (ie. Notre Dame) with custom gold logos w/white outline. Ran out of time to do that. Was going for the KMC gold chain but that it might be too much along with most of your suggesting, but thought against the "bling" look.
As for the rotors, don't know yet. I will tell you in a few hours our my first ride on them.

Can I buy such a frame? I always wanted a steel frame, lightened with carbon tubes, and this looks amazing!
Sadly (altough I am very happy with it) just bought myself a Scott Scale 29er frame,, but my next frame would be something like this!

At the moment it is not available to buy. It originally started out as a "lets-try-it-see-if-it-will-work-why-not-a-NAHBS-bike" :D There was a substantially amount of feedback from the show and with Nick Crumpton giving it a :thumbup: the conversation about offering it has come up. It will be ridden for awhile to access the durability and any shortcomings, then decided if it will be an option to the current Unleaded 29er or a "new" frame.

Thanks for the inquire though.

Keep us updated!!
