36er v1.0, back from paint.

Here are some shots of the geared 36er back from the powder coaters. The color is really nice, it's a red clear over bass boat silver, and it really glows in different lights. The shade of red changes depending on the angle you look at it. The drive train is going to be the final version. I finally figured out how to get a full 34t low gear in the back, and this will be the ticket. Just a 22t up front, but that's still a lot lower than with the 27t the bike had in the rear originally. Brakes on this one are just some 180mm BB7's, with the big 8"s being transfered to the SS bike. With thoughts starting to take shape for the new bike, I thought it prudent to revisit the bike that started it all. Cheers, and have a great weekend!

It looks soooo different now! Hard to see it in the same way for me. Looks rad though, nicely done.

Yeah, it did change the look, but the work to get the frame back to primo condition for a clear powder coating. it had to be a color of some kind, and I liked this one. The other bike still has the clear, and I suppose that will have to work.

We're going to try and put a short film together tomorrow of us riding this bike. It should be a fun day. I'll post it up here when it happens.

Cheers.

I'm thinking single speed with the option of geared. How much for the frame, fork and just the wheelset?

Ben said...

Roughly $1900 plus as much as $300 for shipping and handling. There are many variables that can change any of that, wheels namely. Give me a call at 507 581 6198 during reasonable hours if you'd like to discuss it further. Take care, Ben.
