We've had a few very nice bike builds on the go this week!
Early in the week our new mechanic Jeremy got stuck into building up our Niner WFO frame. Kitted out with a solid build including a Rockshox Pike RCT3 160mm up front, Stans Flow EX wheelset, topped off with the ever so popular XT M8000 1 x 11 drivetrain and brakes. If you're a fan of 29" wheels and need a long legged trail bike, then the WFO definitely fits the bill! This is now on display in the shop so come on down and take a look!
Next up was a Yeti ASRc! Built also as a display bike, this one sports a tasteful build of Sram X01 drivetrain with Shimano XT Brakes, Fox suspension, rolling on Stans ZTR Valor Carbon Wheels. An absolute weapon for rough XC races or as a lightweight trail bike.
One of the most anticipated builds this year would have to have been Calum Booth's Santa Cruz V10. The V10 frame itself is an absolute thing of beauty and was even shipped with Fox's latest generation X2 rear shock! Joel had the pleasure of putting this one together, which made the rest of us quite jealous!
Calum decided to go for SRAMs X01 DH 7 Speed Groupset, which meant a little time waiting but it was well worth it! With a Rockshox Boxxer World Cup up front, SRAM Guide RSC Brakes, and the solid and reliable Stans Flow EX rims on Hope Pro2 Evo Hubs, this thing is an absolute weapon! We wish Calum all the best for the coming season!
To round off the week, we've got and Ibis Mojo HD3 being built right now! A gorgeous frame sporting Fox's new X2 air shock. We'll have more details of this build up in the next few days.
