New Gt owner from France, Bonjour everyone :)

Some parts are still missing (I wait for some 1x10 exotic Ukrainian transmission & kick ass custom Enve wheels)
here is a pre version ( v0.8 ) with getho xtr & winter wheels (ZTR Olympic/CxRays/Novatec)
Enjoy !

Full build : http://www.light-bikes.fr/phpBB/viewtop ... f=45&t=274

Nice bike I have ridden the 29r version for the last two years I really like the suspension design but going to the 2014 Sensor this year. Love the paint job!

Thanks a lot,
To be honest these pictures realy don't do justice to the paint job, I'll try to take some more outside as soon as it stops raining in eastern France.

Here are some details of my custom marathon speedneedle.

Full stock,
Image

After 4400 km : used leather & abused edges,
Image

Step 1, naked without leather,
Image

Step 2, post sanding,
Image

Step 3, with its new rivets : 4 out of 6 were broken at the back,
Image

Weight gain isn't bad at all, futhermore to someone who always wonder about the utility of the thin leather :)

Step 4, a total of 5 layers of mat varnish, our forum decals is sink under 4 layers : all this adds 5g.

Image

Sexy isn't it ?

The Storck's frame got damaged due to a sudden contact/impact with a.. huge granitic rock.
Ok, I crashed.
Unfortunately the Frame is unrepairable according to storck's specialists.
