2003 Direct Link Pro XXL
Of all the Direct Link models, the 2003-2006 frame is my favorite.
I was lucky enough to score this XXL variant, and here it is all built up.
Both the chain-stays & seat-stays have a nice taper to them, and I matched that with a cool leading-edge WTP fork that had a similar taper.
If you've ever seen one of these frames up close & personal, you'll know how fat that down-tube really is!
Some of the parts thrown in to the mix on this build are:
Answer aluminum bars
GT Rhythm hubs with Drive rims (rims courtesy of a great 'museum member, Fatboy!)
Cane Creek Direct curve brakes with Direct curve levers. Front brake is a Bulldog.
Sinz XXX cranks in 180, Wellgo MG1 magnesium pedals, and Kenda Konversion tires.
The seat is a superlight Italian carbon fiber Gipiemme Concept G-124 Stealth. Its carbon, but has a padded fabric top.
The chainring is a Ciari Tetrad.
