|Additional Info||My frame is a Candida Ti, there is only one all over the world like it. It has super short chain-stays 360mm (14.2"). With his 1.75kg, it's one of the lightest dirtjump frame I know. David, the owner of the brand, wanted a frame easy to handle like a BMX, and the stability of MTB, it's done with this frame. Titanium helps winning some weight, and gives some boost every times you'll push on your legs. It's full of Deity Components on my bike. I've always been in love of this brand, about their vision of riding and their high quality products, and i'm not disappointed. My favorites are the Fantom stem with the Vilain II bar, and my crankset with the Vendetta III crank, the Decoy LT pedals, the VTI spindle, and the Termitte sprocket in 25T fit perfectly with the rest of my bike. The Deutsch hubs brand, Assembly Industries, is not very well known yet, but should be on many dream parts lists of riders soon. Tibor Simaï, the boss of the brand, makes those products with a high quality coating. Light and strong, there are two kinds of rear hub, the Super Silent, and the Full Scale. The last one is mine, I've always dreamed rear hub which makes good sounds, and again I'm not disappointed ! It works perfectly, when you push on your pedal, you got an instantaneous answer. I ride with a Hygia Elite brake, sober and efficient, like the rest of the bike. The 160mm rotor is enough for my riding. His design makes it very aggressive. My fork is a Manitou Circus, with 80mm travel. Very smooth, with a low rebound, it makes it very comfortable to ride with. Not so heavy for his program, it looks and it is strong, so I can ride on trust. I ride KHE MacDirt tires, really light and strong, with a good grip on the soft dirt I'm used to ride. My bike is under 11kg, light and strong at the same time, easy to ride and stable, sober and unique, it's the best bike i've ever ridden.|
