HT Overhaul – Bike Build

I decided to get all posh and graduate from the shed into a clean white photo studio (don’t worry the Shed isn’t going anywhere!). This was so I could build back up the winter “hack” hardtail. This is the bike I tore down and introduced in the HT Overhaul video back in the spring.

The components for the build are a hilarious mix of posh/not posh/was posh 10 years ago. Mixing 9 speed XTR, retro Marzocchi forks, Hope brakes and tyres acquired from the local recycling centre.

As part of the bikes overhaul, I serviced and rebuilt all the major components.

Skipping to the end, this bike rips.
