It's a beautiful frame set and the fork came out nicely. Is that from a Pegorichie UOS kit?

I like the idea of the Ritchey Venturemax, but wonder about the bump at the end (maybe it's great). Those or Woodchippers or the like. You could bring the whole thing to CX races and taunt people with its coolness.

Edit: you just posted those^ pictures/I like the Salsa/Sim most I think.

I want to buy some of those venture max, in my experience that bump feels good. It is made of the UOS kit.

Hunter stem, nitto banana bend bars, funky monkey, shimano post, arrione, 7700 cranks , spot guard, older xt rd.

Got to convert wheels to shimano, I have a 11-34 cassette to start. I may try to get a 11-36 to work, not sure if that derailleur will work.

The position is longer than my normal one, should be a fun and maybe uncomfortable change.

Just need brakes and levers and big tires and a bell for the funny number tang on the stem.

Making some progress, found a 10 speed bar end shifter and some nitto cages and compass tires. Converted WI hub to shimano. Drivetrain is working well.

Just need brakes, I have some campy CX brakes around, kinda want some Paul's for it, anyone got some black neo retros or touring brakes?

Looks good. Bet it'll ride really nice once you get it on the road too.

This is really cool. How long did you wait for that fork to be made?

I got it made by a local builder , he turned it around pretty quick (especially because I offered to just get it powdered myself) but I wasn't in a hurry, I have been thinking about and collecting parts for this build for a year or so.

too many projects around to stay on top of these things, plus I have plenty of nice bikes so no rush is needed.

I like the black with yellow more than I would have thought. You've got a good palette going in the picture there with the Tournesol and the Chapman.

That Hunter stem is cool and I like the bell idea--what kind of number was the tab/tang originally for?

I'm pretty sure bicycletricycle is way cooler than all of us. So many stylin' rides. I'm bummed we aren't a similar size.

I actually have no idea what that tang was for originally.

I normally really dislike bumble bee themed bicycles but the yellow/red fade decals are really good looking i think.
