some bling

My friend said it right. "some sort of hipster mountain bike". I originally was going for a steel frame that was painted white but they were out of them and for who knows how long. I couldn't wait so I settled for the aluminum frame that is painted black. Doesn't look that bad at all, although I think the white would have been sweet.

Syncros DS28 rims laced with DT Swiss 350 front hub and Alfine 8 spd read hub

I'm going to see if I can fall in love with these tires. Low rolling resistance with good knobs for cornering

Here it is in the planning stage. Should be rolling soon!
I'm going to see if I can't get this thing out on the road. I will try to ride it to the shop tomorrow and see what it's like. Stay tuned, the reports start coming from here on:

Holy shit. It looks incredible so far. An unusual build, with all the white, but I love it!
