Finally got my Delirium together! This bike has heavy duty AM in mind/ light FR. Not going to win the lightest build but I have room to improve...

The 160 Talas is a loaner, waiting on a black 180mm Talas 36.

This is as clean as the bike's ever going to be so I figured I'd snap a few pics before the final build.

I know polished isn't for everyone but I wanted something different and I got it!

Can't really comment yet on the cranks as I haven't ridden the bike yet, just finished it before the pics. They look cool though!

I'm not a polished bike frame fan, but this is the 2nd polished bike that I really like - looks really, really sharp and should look even better with the black fork.

Oh yeah. That is hot. I love the polished look. So who does that? Didn't know that was an option.
I did this myself. Took over 20 hours of dirty, dirty hands on work with gross polishing compounds, dust masks and lots of tunes.

Gorgeous build!! Really liking the new Deliriums.
Interesting to see the dhx-air on that frame. How's it ride with that shock?

I imagine that my warranty will be void. But hey it looks cool! he he

I didn't ask because I didn't want to know the answer. It was polished before bearings were put in, 006_007 is correct.

As for the pedals...I ran out of cash! 3rd bike and all.

I don't mind the DHX-air. It is what is is; an air shock. I have a CCDB on my podium and they obviously don't compare at all.

This is my AM/FR bike, I don't plan to do Whistler laps on it so the shock actually works quite well considering.

I rode a pre-production Delirium last fall for a month with a DHX Air and an Elka, got this one out for its first ride tonight. I'm very happy with the bike!

I agree. The DHX-Air works pretty darn well on this particular bike. I rode it that way for 1.5 years and recently switched to a coil shock and have been less than impressed with any supposed improvements. (disclaimer: I have not tried a CCDB)

Dang.... that's a lot of polishing.

Our demo ride.
Hard to find what went wrong - 40lbs
The rubber queens add unwanted 600g plus some extra uncut brake cable but nothing more to change for me.
Opinions on what to cut down?

I love the polished look. Great build too. I have my eye on the SiXC cranks so it'll be interesting to hear other Delirium rider's feedback.
