Starling Murmur

Finally got my starling murmur up and running and 99% dialed in. No fancy geo but got additional bottle mount, and adjustable shock mount to fiddle since I'm a big tinkerer.

Also if anyone knows of a chris king inset 7 in the 40th anniversary olive let me know so I can match the bb

sweet ride

I know absolutely nothing about mountain bikes BUT that one would makes me think maybe I need to pay more attention.

The details are amazing...gussets with starlings and the connection for the trailing arms and chainstays. Lucky man! Enjoy!!

Oh, nice. I'm not a Radavist fan boy but John Watson spoke so highly of his Starling I really have it on my bucket list of bikes to try.

Did you order this new? How did the order process go if you don't mind my asking?

FS steel ... be still my retro heart ... I like the looks of this bike and I'm imagining I would like the ride. Also excited about the steel FS mule Kris built at 44 bikes.

They got on my radar too from John years ago but I've only been diving hard into mtb the last 2 years. Joe's been on multiple podcast and hearing his philosophy of designing his bikes made a lot of sense to me.

I did order this new and the process was great. It was about a 12 week turnaround but that was expected. I probably sent Joe too many emails but he responded to all of them and that seems to echo with others who have worked with him.

This is cool! I actually haven't seen too many custom dual suspension bikes that I thought looked all that good, but this is beautiful. It has a silhouette similar to the previous generation Yeti's which I thought were some of the prettiest bikes out there.

What do you mean by “additional bottle mount?” Looks like 1 on the underside of the top tube back by the seat tube. Is there another somewhere? Underside of downtube?
