Buying & Building the Steve Potts 2012 Award Winning Ti Bike

26er Video

Well, here she is, folks! Finished final cable and hose adjustments this morning, then had a little time to snap a few pics. The bike is now out of my hands and headed back to Steve for the handmade bike show. I believe he’ll swap the bars out for the show so he can showcase all his component goodies, too.

My initial excitement started to turn into stress yesterday as the final pieces were coming together. I kept second guessing myself, thinking I made “wrong” choices, and it would all be out there for the world of Pros to see. But it’s done and out of my hands now. I *think* I did a respectable job with the build and paid attention to detail. Now I can relax a bit and then go have some fun at the show drooling at everyone else’s bike!

Bathroom scale method tells me the bike weighs in right around 24 lbs.

Here’s the build list. I recorded all this weight weenie info, so I might as well share this, too
