This took over 2 years. Vicious cycles did the repaint (aquamarine fade w/opposing stars). Phil Ti bottom bracket, Boone Ti rings, Grafton cranks, Paul brakes and levers, Ringle stem and post (need a shorter stem if anyone can help), Hope hubs, Mavic 217 rims, Hyperlite bar, Full XTR M900 except paul over the bar conversion.

Nice looking aquafade, where did you get the decals, my 94 yo (also aquafade) doesn't have the 'don't tread on decal'. It's just never had one on. Also who built your wheels, I've never seen a front wheel laced up like that before with all the spokes coming from the inside of the hub.

What do you call the spoke lacing pattern on the front wheel. Never seen that one before.

spoke pattern is a 4X heads-in. the spokes laying across eachother kind of lock. makes a pretty stiff wheel.

Now you need to go get that MuthaF***in bike dirty! Is that a Big One Inch or a YO fork? Looks like a BIO.

That is one lovely bike, do you have problems pedalling without pedals or do you use tie-wraps?

pedals are the death of all nice paint jobs. my girlfriend just messed up my brand new vicious monolith's paint with another bikes pedals. i think its just easier to pull off pedals.
