Thank you, it’s a bit of a work in progress.  But soon I will have some good pictures of the latest setup.  Here are some garage iPhone pics of the current setup with new cranks, 28 tooth 30th Anniversary sprocket, 2.45 wide tires and Evo 2.5 brakes.  Still waiting on the new pedals.  But pretty close to done (for now) lol, I really dig it.  And I’m stoked other people like it too.

Re: 2017 Colony Prody

I took it out for the final buildoff photos and then gave her a good shakedown, and it rides awesome.  I am thinking I’ll swap over to a 25 tooth front sprocket to get the gearing lower and a 43mm front load GT mallet stem to bring the bars in a bit. 
But she rides sweet.  Here are a few pics my wife took during its first rip.

Re: 2017 Colony Prody

nice looking bike


My Father once spoke to me and said "The way you look at your bike is the way I see My children, I look past the imperfections and rough surfaces to the beauty of the finished product."

Re: 2017 Colony Prody

The Hoffman low drags, 43mm GT mallet front load stem, and bash sprocket have arrived at my house, just gotta fly home from work in a week and bolt them up.  Then it’s time to hit some ramps!

Re: 2017 Colony Prody

Digging how the new stem and bars feel.  And the OG AME GT grips are taking me back to when I was a punk kid, lol.
