Let's be honest, everyone likes these topics ;) C'mon, don't be shy - show us your rig and let us praise it!


Some rules: at least one photo is obligatory! Also, please write at least short description of the setup so we can discuss it and ask you some questions (which can be useful for people building or upgrading their Balfas).

This topic is for BB7 users! If you have a 2Steps, Belair, Minuteman, Wooly Bully, Bobonum or NR , please submit it in this topic.

You are so right about the cranks. They are Rook FRD, will probably keep them when i rebuild my bike.

The fork is an Avalanche DHF-7 with titanium springs. I realy love it but im thinkiong about changing it for something a bit lighter, like a fox40 or RS world Cup
