2011 Solid Bikes

Custom built Solid Bikes frame sitting on my rider parts.

I custom ordered this Solid Bikes frame a few months ago, I ride the crap out of it so yes, it's banged up.
Okay, started with King Cobra tubing and stand over height, went with a traditional seat post tube (no integrated clamp BS) had dual cable stops mounted on the top tube for my lower cables, gyro tabs, and seat stay brake mounts, painted translucent black, and here's the geometry:
HT: 74.5°
ST: 70°

Demolition:Phantom V2 front hub and hub guardRogue rear LHD hub and hub guardZero rims (x2)  I doubled up on rim strips in the back since the drilled rims made my tubes a bit too prone to flats.Red Alloy nipples

Thanks, man.

I need to update pics soon, I just replaced the rear tire w/ a Maxxis Grifter Kevlar bead... dropped 2/3 of a lb... I've been crashing and burning all week from it, it's sooooo stinking light it's ridiculous!

Re: 2011 Solid Bikes

Got her weighed proper today... first time after getting the Kevlar tires on her... 22.7 lbs  big_smile 

I love it when I tell people to pick it up and they start freaking out about why it's so light as a full rig!

Perfectly, I've been putting it through the wringer since I moved to So-Cal, I get a ton of comments on it too, a lot of the local riders have been hitting up Solid to get them a custom build too, guys who have a hard time finding a frame that fits their needs.
