Upgrades: 6x Ti stem bolts, GDH Ti crank spindle, Ti button bolts on front and rear hubs, Ti 9t cog, Ti female 10mm rear axle, hacked off 6mm on pivotal seatpost, front Sun rim on the rear for nice hand comfort and rear envy on the front for the machined sidewalls for braking, Deco logo grip flange cut for pressure on the sprocket to frame, sprocket milled down to 3/32 one off to match chain and rear cog, hockey tape extra thick on my lever for kushness, REM oil inside cable and moving parts of brake, filed down brake pivots so they set loose and pull smoother, Kevlar bead tires to reduce weight, 10-14mm alloy spacers for rear end, grips sat in the Florida sun for one day in 90 degree weather to soften, 110 psi carefully pressurized with hand pump.

Real cool how the through the drop out chain tensioners put pressure on the 10mm-14mm adaptor so it does not mess up the threads of the Profile 10mm button bolt. Also I can slam my wheel closest to the dropout back so my rear end is short. Another great thing is with female axle I take off the stud and it makes removing my chain to change my tire or work on my wheel real easy and I don’t bend my sprocket forcing my chain off.

Total weight: 21lbs.

MSRP: $2099.00
