On-One Scandal 29er.

Well the plan for the new ride is just getting started. I have the frame, forks, headset and all the tools but now I need the parts!

The idea is to go back to basics with the Scandal but with a modern twist.

It's going to have a 29" wheelset along with rigid carbon fibre forks and singlespeed gearing. The idea is to make the bike as light and strong as possible so that it'll be a dream to ride and perfect for some epic trails.

The frame colour is British Racing Green, so i'm planning on using gold Hope parts (such as hubs, brakes, headset, skewers and seatclam) to really make it stand out.

Here is the frame -

The carbon forks -

The gold headset ligned up in the frame -

The final spec should be something along the lines of -

  2. I'm starting to build a hardtail myself.
    My old RockLobster SL has been chemically dipped and I'm waiting on new decals for it, going for the raw factory look.
