I'm not sure where to put this, there is no consolidated frankenbike thread IIRC, but I would think this is a display of biking passion/tinkering.... or just something to commute on. I saw this bike on campus and it immediately grabbed my attention due to its "je ne sais quoi". This creation is built of what I would consider to be pretty decent parts worthy of many finely built and admired bicycles. The build AFAICT is as follows: Krampus MDS frame, Surly Ogre? fork, Chromag hbar, Thomson box stem and seatpost, White Industries headset, hubs, crankset+ring, probably BB as well, Rhynolite rims, TRP spike calipers with huge DH rotors, deore shifter, RD and cassette, and Crank Bros. pedals. Notice the 26x1.5 slick tires. I am in awe and bewilderment looking at this bike. I'm gonna keep an eye out for the rider to inquire about the build story, there's just gotta be one.

So here it is:

Great find. I love builds like this. Except for the steerer tube. Could kill someone with that!

Built of parts from his/hers dad's junk box?
No idea, but would like to find out

Agreed, but it's also possible that fork will end up somewhere else too.

I haven't seen anyone around the bike as yet. I'm tempted to leave my email address to see if the person will share the build story.
