Bloodstock currently in my stable.... 

1st time I've taken both bikes out at the same time. The kloud now has Crewkerz carbon forks, Crewkerz 145mm stem and Clean bars since the photo.

Taking a redo on my hex, that paint was BRUTAL. Paid someon $50 to strip it, wasn’t even a good job- had to take 000 steel wool and much time with an exacto knife to get al the little chips out of the welds... frame feels much lighter, doesn’t show it on the scale. Looking forward to riding it again!!

 

 

whats up with the new model hex- different geo? 5mm longer wheelbase all I could see?

Another edit...I  think I have to change from 22-17 to 20-15/16... what should I go for? Can’t get the chainring to clear from carving into frame without putting all 3 spacers on drive side w these slx cranks- which I fear will lead to a premature bb death...

Another edit...I  think I have to change from 22-17 to 20-15/16... 15 would be well heavy. what should I go for?

They have extra long cups for their 83mm size. Well at least the Saint ones do. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=saint+DH+bb&hl=en&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiWvbbNi7zXAhVD2qQKHYanBhgQ_AUICigB&biw=1283&bih=716#imgrc=eJ6hy6WR5C-Z6M:

Cheers... yeah I’ve had a black saddle on order forever and just came in... big fat one, could save major weight there but i like sitting.  Both my bikes would be ideally all silver / black... but a green rim, blue hub, things i had no choice as they were a good deal/the only option at the time... that spark rim came from Germany, absolutely amazing wheel w pro4 hub.. arcade fork and through axle makes me not want to ride all my qr bikes.

 

yesterdays sunset thrown in there... welcome to Southern California, every day in the winter.. inspired is overdue for a trip here.

My mates new Hex and my Arcade compliment each other brilliantly. :)

Still haven't got round to take some nice pics of my build, though it's mostly original.. Annoyed I never could get the colour to display properly but this photo seems farily accurate.

Well .. it’s been a while !

Many years ago I was hopping around and on this forum daily ... time has past and I am now 52 but have recently decided that a bit of a hop again may help get my lardy arse back Into a little better shape ... still ride motorcycle trials every week as well, and got an old Onza that I can still amazingly hop around on the back wheel with, shame I still can’t do it on my TRS !

I'll let you off for green pad compound as that's a non-optional performance thing.
I'd even have let it slide that you didn't de-logo everything, which really should be done if you're chasing true stealth.

 

Red backings. Not stealth.
Red nipples. Not stealth.

 

Not stealth; nothing lost; don't feel bad.

 

:rolleyes:

de-logo'd the frame ;) 

the red was a compromise cuz it looked cool. smooth rims made much more stealthy-impact :P 

...from a distance, maybe.

So ended up putting the matching forks onto the Zoot. Reduced the wheelbase slightly but felt a lot stiffer. I've asked Euan Beaden for a bolt up front conversion too which should stiffen it up even more.

 

Jobs a good un!

Found some more spare old bits in my garage ... so the old Echo is about ready for riding, probably safer for me to stay on the flat for now !

Taken people's advice with Bars n Stem. Just having a quick test and actually enjoying it a bit more.
