Default Ringle Blue Buck Shaver

Bucky has got a new coat of paint - check it out.

It's Ringle Blue - Practically a perfect match!

The final build will have a blue Ringle seat post and stem with gold being mixed in other goodies.

Mark at Spectrum Powder Works in Colorado Springs did the paint. Super nice people there and the work speaks for itself.

I had my LBS press in the gold CK headset cups today and I'll take some time tomorrow to work on the build. The gold headset against that blue with the gold in the decals looks sweet.

I've seen Spectrum's work and it's incredible. Is yours powder or paint, I know they do both.
The things they can do in powder is nothing short of amazing.

Butcher,

that frame looks sick. i cannot believe how good that looks. Spectrum is good there ain't no doubt about it. in fact when i was riding a DEAN out at Lorry State Park and Horsetooth Res - that frame was done at Spectrum. the Poudre lives!

can't wait to see the full build,

Sette

That's liquid paint. We had them check to see if they could do that in powder but no way, it had to be liquid for them to do their magic and match the anodized aluminum color.

that looks stunning. So what is the story of the buck shaver? All I knew up till a month ago was that my wicked was just that, hand built etc, rides awesome. Now I see yo eddy, titainium, etc.
not trying to hijack, but would like to know 'what is a buck'? :>}

Here are some pictures of the bike built up. I did an overnight build as my girl friend and I were going to Moab Utah for a nice weekend of riding and she was freakin out for me to get this done for the trip. As such, the bikes first ride in its new form was on slick rock trail.

I threw in a shot of my Monster Fat from the trip too.

Doesn't look like you shaved bucks to me . That thing is lovely. Nice job. The gold King hardware highlights the blue perfectly.

I set it up as a 1 x 9 (32 front with 11-34 spread in back) and it gives you a pretty dang good range of gears and cleans up the looks of the bike. It's not been on a good scale but it's plenty light for sure and it rides sweet! We used a bath room scale to ball park the weight and it looks like 22ish lbs.

Thanks all for the kind comments. It really does blow me away when I look at it, the bike looks like it is glowing all the time.

I hope to blow you all away soon with my most special personal project - my 90 Yo Eddy restoration. More to come later.

Yeah the single front must shave some good weight. and it does look like a good gearing combo. hmmmmm ( talking to myself) might have to do that to mine with the new wheels I'm getting.

And for sure it does clean it up nicely

It's very striking.
Question: Are you sure you have enough chain? It looks like it's pulling that rear derailleur pretty hard.

Very observant! You must be looking at the pic with the bike in the 34 cog, it is set up with as short a chain as possible to keep the chain slap to a minimum. The other thing I was trying to do is keep good tension in the chain as with no front deraileur if the chain were to come off it would make you get off and mess with it - no "shifting" it back on. It is very close to or at max extension in the 34, much like a bike with a triple in the large cog out back and large chain ring in front. It does work nice set up like this - shifts perfect - and in the taller gears the extension looks normal. The chain has yet to come off when riding in this configuration.
