update on the Spooky Darkside XC…

and here’s one just for fun to show off the carbon fork, such a cool look!

so just a bit of an update on the ’10 Spooky Darkside XC that i’m turning into a fast 650b commuter bike.

swapped out the bars for a set of FSA SLK carbon compact bars, i love the shape of my alloy ones on the Gunnar Sport, so why not get a set of even lighter less viby ones for the inherantly buzzy alloy Spooky?

i also snagged a set of SRAM Force carbon levers, a beautifully built UD front carbon hanger from Piotr Smuda’s Smud Carbon, and a Thomson seatpost binder.

figuring out the rest in my head, but this is more like what i had originally envisioned.

      Thanks Greg! 😀 Me too 😉 haha It has a Revelate medium frame bag and just got the violet Brooks tape in the mail.

      I also got some black vinyl, like used on a car wrap, and covered the red caps on the top of the DT Swiss fork, looks so much better! It was just too much red going on with the purple, no bueno!
