The first order for this current run of MUSA disc frames asked if he could get his powder coated green - specifically RAL 6018, a very bright green. I thought, "well, okay, I guess a few green frames will sell, eventually." I don't know what it is, but dang, this green bikes looks HOT. I'm really digging the look of the frame once it has decals applied and is built up. The new owner also thinks it looks HOT and that's what's important.
The new Shimano RS685 mechanical/hydraulic system is really sweet. It feels great. Brakes are there when you need them and Shimano shifting is flawless. The rest of the build is a really great complement to the bike as a whole:
White Industries CLD hubs with Pacenti SL25 rims and WTB Nano 40 TCS tires
White Industries VBC road cranks 44/30 with a Phil Wood bottom bracket
Thomson X4 stem, Masterpiece seat post with a WTB Devo seat
Salsa Cowbell 2 bar
Ultegra derailleurs with an 11-32 cassette
King Cage Iris cages and a Chris King headset round it out
How much does it weigh? I don't know. Didn't weight it. But it rides and feels great. And that's what matters. It weighs what it weighs. No more, no less.
This bike will remain local and could be spotted out on the vast array Marin's trails and roads. Enjoy Chris!
