Re: 2009 GM Designs Greg Melms Blackbird SR24

Thanks guys!
Regarding the parts list, there's a couple parts worth mentioning:
The front hub is a Sun Ringle that I machined for larger bearings and a large aluminum female axle. I also bored the ID to make it even lighter and used Ti bolts to hold it on.
The handlebars are from Liquid-bikes.com. 28" W x 6". 10 deg. backsweep and 2 deg. upsweep. I believe they still have some left in stock.

The rest of the parts are pretty much standard-issue stuff:
Intense MK2 folding tires, Rhyno-lite rims, Odyssey race rear hub
Shimano brakes, a Madera stem, a Ti spindle with powdercoated box cranks and a Rennen chainwheel.
The seat is Odyssey with a carbon post.
Oh, and can't forget my silver 3/32 Sram chain....

Bike weighs right at 24lbs.

Hooligan: The forks are made from streamline tubing (think JMC but a bit larger). They're very narrow viewed from the front.
I'll try to get some more pictures up.
