I'm starting to get an unhealthy interest in hardtails after looking at @Litenbror's Honza. I'm a big Kona fan from their 88-97 bikes but haven't played much attention to anything after that until recently. I found that recreational single speed Facebook, while I have no interest in single speed there's some seriously beautiful bikes out there. I'm on the hunt for a dual suspension bike but I'm really going to struggle if a good second hand hardtail pops up in my price range.
I’ve posted the Chromag Stylus and Specialized Fuse before but I’m bored so I thought that I’d update.
First is the Stylus. The Cherry red coil Helms are a very sweet fork but the colour didn’t really work for my old build so I’ve swapped some parts around too create a “Marley” theme. Im just on the hunt for a green seat collar to complete the look and yes... that is a cooppers beer can seat post shim. 30.90-31.8 and it‘s the right colour and works alright as long I’m careful washing it!
the fuse hasn’t had a wash but has had some very nice 1300 gram Roval Control SL wheels fitted to complete the sweet build. At a little over 11kg the fuse is a little light for this forum, but with a 140mm fork, 180mm rotors and minion tyres She’s up for anything!
thanks for the chance to post and keep the pics of your lovely steeds coming!
