Why this bike?

It had been a project for a long time and now it is a reality.  If you compare the project with the reality (which still needs to be powder coated) there are a few changes and I didn’t manage to reach my 10,50kg, but at 150mm travel and <11,00kg it is still a super light all mountain bike!

It was not ‘finished’ because I didn’t have time to get it powder coated before going to the Pyrenees.  I have since decided to leave it ‘naked’ and not get it powder coated after all.
