One new, one not so new

It truly was a busy day at Freeborn's Esher bike shop today, we squeezed 2 custom built Mythic bikes into our hectic schedule

One is brand new, so new the owner has not even seen it!

Jamie is coming on Monday to pick up his custom build Wildcard, damn's he is going to feel the stoke ;)

I didn't realise until earlier this week that Stan's make the ZTR Flow rims in WHITE...eyeing some up for my Rampant rebuild already

Jamie's Wildcard has a Fox 36 Talas fork, Fox DHX air rear shock, Easton EA-70 bar, Thomson X4 stem, Fizik Gobi saddle, Shimano SLX cranks with E13 LG1, SRAM X-9 shifting, Stan's ZTR Flow rims on Hope Pro II hubs with DT Swiss Comp d/b spokes and brass nipples, Stan's Tubeless conversion and SBC Control Eskar All-Mtn tires - it feels pretty light and looks trick in the black / white colours

Here's another Mythic that I built this morning, not so new, but its gone to a great home

This is Esher Shore regular Jordan who bought Marshall's (Esher Shore trail pest) Chaparral frame at a killer price, Marshall threw in Diablous cranks, E13, RF Diablous headset and seatpost

Jordan recently bought a Lyric Coil U-Turn and new front wheel from us, we added a Sram X-9 left shifter pod and Sram Next-Gen front mech, DMR Swarm stem and EA-50 bars and new cabling

Jordan was previously riding a Carrera *Banshee* that was on its last legs, its a huge step up to the "real" thing to get a "proper" Banshee ;)

Although he looks pretty serious in this pic, he seemed very stoked on his "new" rig

Always great to see a used frame go to a good home, have fun Jordan!
