Default NOS Wicked Build!

head wound surfing forces me into this build. can't wear a helmet, can't ride either. may as well build up this wonderous Wicked!

would like thoughts on seat post clamp... i have tried the salsa and it sits too low. the bolt will not clear. please let me know if you have any ideas on where to go.

proposed build info:

736W08 or 786W08 - paint is super shinny, tough to see in the reflection.

Shimano M735 drivetrain.

Shimano DX/Mavic 231 wheelset with early 7speed XT cassette.

Topline cranks

Spectre post

Control Tech stem

Bontrager Titec bar

Shimano XT headset

more to come

Blue is very classic. silver components? silver rims? silver stem and bars? leather saddle?

just about everything is going to be silver. i need to source that seatpost binder in silver. headset, stem, wheels, post - yeah. just about everything is silver.

as for the seat??? i was thinking about a white Turbo! what do you think about that. too matchy?

a white turbo is awesome...!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you will fell the wicked a bit cramped at first. you come from a medium Yo and you surf, you have a big chest. If necessary use a 140mm stem on it. set the wicked as a happy all around machine: semi slicks, 2.0, fit her brilliantly.
the front sret up, stem and bars, is crucial.

BUild it asap!!

search for BMX seat collars. in the last case go a machine shop and have them make a collar for you.

i think the white Turbo will look good with the white decals.

the stem should be 120ish. it might be a 130? have not measured in some time.

tires right now are Timbuk II's. i could get some Wildgripper Sprints - they have a smooth center and beige sidewall.

o.k. going to start looking for that seatclamp.

Sette

don't even waste your time w/ a 120 stem. 135 to begin with. old school geometry.
silver ritchey or black salsa or control tech.
start w/ something cheap and ugly, experimenting size.

UPDATE:

build has come to a halt.

the steer tube threads were really thrashed. so, we need to have those cleaned up.

BB spindle, lock collars, and crank has been installed.
