none of these pictures really do the colour justice... the green looks almost gold under good lighting. SO nice!

Nice. I head out to the Hydrocut every so often, its an awesome place to ride. Other than that I am not to familiar with the area. Years ago I did a UCUP but didn't really like it. I race in some of the OCUP's, 8 hours, and 24 hours.

A Canadian riding a Dekerf? Unheard of. :beerchug:

That is pure sex on wheels! Congratulations on your bike. I remember drooling over Dekerf's a long time ago and the appeal has not changed.

I will now wipe the drool of my keyboard.

that colour is amazing... what paint system is it? RAL?... and if so, what was the code?

i have two frames at the finishers at the moment, a Turner 5 spot which is going pastel blue and a Cannondale HT which is going Lambo green.... i'm now having a serious change of heart!

Thanks! I think it's awesome too! I don't know much about the paint itself, Chris Dekerf does all the painting etc at his shop. I just asked him to do his Olive colour with a flat clearcoat. Turned out spectacular, has a gold tinge to it under natural light. If you contacted him through his site he may have more information for you. Hope that helps.
oh, and another guy just posted his own brand new Team SST on the Dekerf owners blog... same colour, I was flattered (even if my pictures had nothing to do with it)

Right on, Ill be back there in the summer.

Just looking over your blog I noticed your KONA, did you happen to build up on of their Scandium 26in hardtails with 650b wheels this past summer? I work at a shop in town and we had someone bring theirs in for some help getting it set up, just thought it may have been you as seeing your rig (and that sweet Lynskey) reminded me of the customers WW ethic and tinkering addiction. Regardless, it was a cool bike whether it was you or not.

Thanks for the compliments!

some updates.

new cassette (gold carrier 990) and chain, pc991 hollowpin. Black grip collars, Thomson Elite seatpost (black 350mm), Thomson Elite X4 stem (black, 0 degree, 90mm) and a further chopped steerer.

Maxxis ikons (2.1 and as light as possible) as well as a Raceface Next SL crank paired with a N-W 32t chainring (black of course) to come for the fall race season.

sitting at 24lbs... looking to loose a bit more with those new parts and the removal of my chainguide... hope N-W is all it promises to be...
