Yeah, it's purple! And the WHOLE bike will be purple! Why? She loves purple! But why a new MTB for Christine? Wasn't the NukeProof Scout 275 good enough? She doesn't really MTB much, so why??
Well, WHY NOT!? LOL...no, seriously. I wanted to build another project bike and figured what better way than to upgrade that alloy Nukeproof than with a proper, steel, COTIC Solaris Max! The bike that made me a better rider...maybe will do the same for her? Maybe not, but it'll be a better, more capable bike, IMHO.
It won't be radical? But will be a work of art as they all are. Check out the list below for some of the best of the best in components for this epic redo/build!
We'll see if it works as well for her as it did for me!
Only the best! 12 speeds of sheer joy!
Quadiems, but on steroids! Better, stronger, grippier! with some nice 2.3mm rotors!
Bulletproof alloy from e*13...for now til the carbon custom rims get in
Great all around tire that will work perfect for the application.
Going high end, 130mm, custom purple ShredKote!
Still my favorite all around grip!
THE best cranks, just a bit heavier than my go to carbon version!
Only the best and lightest out there!
