First Custom Build – Part #3…

NukeProof Snap Urban Dirt Bomber – driveside.  Skull seat

We’re getting there now :-)   Handlebars, grips and shifter fitted…

Front end

…as well as bottom bracket, full drive train, pedals, chain device and chainstay protector

            

Also got the decals (nearly straight) on the forks ;-)  and the seat, post & Q/R clamp installed

            

Also have a couple of upgrades/changes to make before the bike is even fully built!

…a pretty very heavy but much more substantial Kona B.O Stem to replace the eXotic Carbon Matrix unit that’s fitted now.  And another set of (new) Schwalbe tyres to replace the (used) Schwalbe tyres that are currently fitted.  Found very good deals on both the new stem and street/dirt Schwalbe Table Top tyres so will have these fitted by the next instalment…

            

I have ridden the bike and it seems to ride great although it’s impossible to really test it without any brakes!…I’ve found out that a solid pair of skate shoes and exactly 3 bottles of Heineken give the best combination of performance and stupidity when testing a bike with no brakes ;-)

Brakes will be fitted in a couple of weeks as well as the new stem and tyres shown above.  Got a brand spanking set of Kevlar brake pads ready to give the old Deore’s a bit of a new lease of life when they are fitted…

            

Apart from that, Project Urban Dirt Bomber should be shreddin’ the BMX track, dirt jumps, streets & trails de la vallée de Serre Chevalier within a couple of weeks…happy days   :-)
