Ok, I'll show mine off even though it really isn't a WW ride by any means. It could be with a different frame but I like my mass produced STEEL Vassago...for now...

Jabber frame
White Brothers Rock Solid fork
King HS
Ritchey WCS stem w/ ti bolts
Ritchey WCS 1/4" rise bar
ESI chunky grips (tend to swap grips frequently for whatever reason)
Hylix barends or Ergon set up depending on what I feel like riding from week to week
KCNC 400mm post
XTR M960 crank modded for SS and ceramic coated in matte black
HBC 32t ring
KCNC bolts
KMC X9sl chain
Selle San Marco Aspide saddle w/ ti rails
XTR M985 brakes
Stock Vassago seat clamp (also have a bmx S&M in red that I swap out if I feel the need for bling)
Egg Beater 3's w/ ti axle swap
XT BB (blew out my XTR and went cheap for the winter but will probably throw a King on it this summer)

Wheels (have two sets)

Set 1
Velocity VXC rims
DT Comp spokes
Silver brass nips
White Industries hubs (32 hole)
White Industries Trials FW (18t)
WTB Bronson 2.2 tires (tubeless)

Set 2
Crest rims
Sapim Spokes
allow nipples
Hope hubs (swapped out stock rear ss bolts for ti ones from Toronto bikes and shaved some 30g! They stock bolts are M10's!!!)
Surly 17t cog (King 18t is in the mail)
Maxxis Ikon tires (tubeless)

Sorry, weight of bike with Hope/Crest wheels and no barends is right at 20.5 lbs. Not too bad for a 4.7 lb frame build in my opinion.

Wow that Prevail bike looks sick! I love the layback post!

Where does that frame brand comes from? How do you like your Kapius hubs?

Form Cycles are in Phoenix Arizona. Not sure what to say about the hubs, except that they're without doubt my favorite thing on the bike.

@JB: we need to see better photos of your Firefly/BlackSheep/PrimusMootry!

Edit: Added some pictures of the hubs/wheels

It's kinda of a mut. Full 2013 XTR, XX rings, Enve bars and wheels for a song. It pays to deal with real Cdale dealers. Spokes are white same hubs as 2013, newest fork a 2012 RP23 shock(bought a new shock and on it's way to Push Industries for custom work). I would rather have a Push anything than whatever from Fox. Bike kicks AS$.

Too each his own. I chose parts for my bikes based on performance based over a boat load of miles.

Thanks for looking!
