Love the look of that bike. Surprised its that Portly...but tires probably add good chunk of that.

How'd it perform @ Grinduro?

I was surprised too..or maybe I'm just used to silly light stuff. Still a fun bike nonetheless.

As for Grinduro, it was a major fail. Did the drive to SF from LA a couple days before the event and got sick in the process. Drove back to LA the following day and missed the whole event. Definitely bummed, but looking forward to the next one.

Bummer... I kinda had a similar experience with the Red Kite Prayer event....got all the way there from Minneapolis and promptly got sick. Maybe its NorCal!

Anyway. Love the build....thinking of doing something similar with a Zukas custom frame and your Cosmic Stallion kinda makes me second guess my spot in line but we're headed into winter here and outside riding will soon turn to hours on rollers.

A little refresh. Replaced the crankset with Sram since the 9100 Crank went on the Mosaic. Went back to the Pro Vibe 7s stem and a Berk List (this time in black).

Next up: Wheels. Not a fan of the purple hubs on this.
  • Bottom Bracket: Chris King -- Sram GXP
  • Crankset: Dura Ace 9100 -- Sram Red
  • Stem: Enve -- Pro Vibe 7s (120)
  • Saddle: Berk Lupina - Berk List

That looks so mean!

How does the List compare to the Lupina? They appear on the website to have a similar shape, just with or without a cutout?

I have to say, I very much liked it with the white saddle and bartape..

Thanks!

Re: Berk List v Lupina
- Yeah same shape. Only difference is the cut-out.
- I have 2 of each, and they do feel identical in shape, however, on the same bike, the Lupina is definitely stiffer.
My guess is that Berk uses a different layup towards the center of the saddle. The cutout is to alleviate pressure, but I assume the stiffer layup is to prevent the saddle from sinking. Probably the reason why both saddles (padded) weigh the same.

Yes! I'm a fan of white saddle / white tape too. But this bike is pretty much for dirt only, and the white doesn't hold up as well. I switch things up pretty often so I've kept the white lupina just in case for this bike or another.

If my Indy doesn't sell, it'll go on that

Thanks for the feedback re the saddles.

Just had a look at your Indy - great colour. I very much like how the Indy looks with white saddle and tape, too (and the tan tires)!
