benus´s FREAK BOMBER

Some "noname" pedals. Different pedals on both sides, both are silver and black with Mini Christophe Toe Clips.

Drivetrain/Cog/Chainring/Chain:
17/46 (Gebhardt Classic), chain: Point Racing - Mask Chain MK 918 (half-link)

Handlebars/Stem:
Race Face (110mm, 31,8mm, 1 1/8" with Thomson Stem Shin for 1" fork) / Race Face flatbar with Lizard Skin grips in green

Saddle/Seatpost:
noname "Flite" on Race Face Ride XC 27,2

I probably shouldn't like this bike but I do. It is consistent with the flow of your other two bikes just rougher. It looks like it has some real character.
