Looks great with the red details, well built. I saw it at MTBR as well

Sexy handlebars, but why no Extralite stem?

Thanks, no extralite stem as long as I don't find a decent one from the aftermarket !
Surprisingly most of the components on my bike are second hand.

I have to say I also follow your thread ;) love the build, apart from the recon twisters... good luck with them !

Thank you rOYk, I like when I forget my bike while riding ;)
To be honest I don't have much miles ont the brakes, but as far I can tell there's not much clearance between the rotor & the brake pads therefore it's a pain to fine tune... power & weight is fine of course.. compared to my old gen M975 XTR's.

hi :) nice bike. i've seen this on mtbr as well. i have some questions though:
1. what is the rider weight?
2. how are the ztr race rims holding up? how long have you been using them? they seem so fragile in reviews

cheers and more updates :)

Thanks Derek, it is a FRM Blackhole for road bike only : 54g... so far so good even after a few crashes, it is surprisingly confortable.

Thanks Wingman,
I'm 69 kg, approx 152 pounds.
Well, theses ZTR Race are suposed to be fragile you're right ! but like the saddle, so far so good. to be honest they have to be trued by pro mecanic once a year, I'm light and have a clean ride that helps also.
