Fantastic, where did you dig this up from??

The only thing letting the bike down IMO was the forks with their 1" of travel. I still have them with working bumpers but they never compressed more than that which is why I'm putting shivers on.

A site I'm sure you're familiar with... Retrobike | Retro, Vintage and Classic Mountain, Road and BMX bikes

I'd forget the retro build, it'd be much more interesting to see how such a classic frame performs given the benefit of modern components.

New frame color for the weasel, more pics to follow when I get the frame back together. It's a large flake base coat with a red candy over the top. Lights up like crazy in the sun.

I had the luck to get hold off a 'NewOldStock' Fly '09, which I built up with some current parts like an SRAM X01, Hope V4 with vented Discs, Spark Spike Evo 35 rims and a Thomson Elite Dropper. Weight of the complete bike is 14.2 kg = 31.5 lbs.

I'm still looking for an LTS-16 frame in silver. Anyone have one that they want to part with?

A bit of a slow mover this one, a baby along the way means a 'slight' shift in priorities and time :)

This is how it looks at the minute...
