Yeahhhh dude great looking, solid, light weight bike....nice work!
How do you like the Mrazek brakes?
I had them on my old Answer Mantiou HT bike and they worked great with the Pauls levers.
A little tricky to set-up but great braking performance.
Were the Nokon cables difficult to set-up?

Thanks,

So far so good with the brakes and cables. I took the sled for her maiden voyage on 17 miles of technical single track.

Yes both systems are different so they have a learning curve......very pleased with both the brakes and cables so far.

I knew when I posted this newbie I wouldn't get much work done today.

I'll get my other sleds prettied up and posted soon.

Only two would be "WW" worthy

2 - 95-Diamondback Axis Ti fully rigid with Spicer Ti forks. One geared in around 18lbs give or take the other a single speed 16lbs. give or take.

I just saw you ride a 48 outer ring! :shock: Is it only going downhill where you live? :wink: Or is your quadriceps that strong?

For me a 46 is max!

Wow! 8)

So how much have you spent on these babies? It would be interesting to compare how much you've spent on each bike.
.....but it still has to work!

Frankie-B, I don't get what you mean about the saddle.

Polaris, I'm an ebay junkie. I have a little over a grand in the ss and $2800 into the Lapierre. Most of the components on the Lapierre are new. Most of the components on the ss are used.
