NBD: New Bike Day, Volume Vandal!

My production Volume Vandal finally came in the mail yesterday!  There’s a few more weeks before everything is covered in snow so I’m going to go as hard as I can to stack a pile of clips for a proper bike check video.  It’s already below the freezing point most of the time so the bike couldn’t have come soon enough!

Here are some preliminary shots of how far I could get it built with the tools I had on hand last night after work.

Care package!

Pictured above is my new production Vandal frame, Resist headset/BB, Icon sprocket, Demolition Keystone stem, grips, Trickster bars and Congoloid bars.

Lacking BB tools I got the bike as far as I could, it looks INCREDIBLE!  I’ve got a fresh set of rims from Velocity that I’ll be building up when I get the BB put in, can’t wait!

This is the condition my old Vandal prototype was in after a year of Canadian weather, starting with a harsh winter.  Every inch of it was rust and/or stickers!

I’ll be getting this built up tonight and then I’ll post proper bike check photos and I’ll start stacking clips for a fresh edit.  SO stoked on this new bike!
