GB4 26 inch Muni

This muni has been built up since early summer, 2004. George at GB4 MFG built the frame for me. George powdercoated the frame a beautiful metallic black. The frame is made to fit 40mm bearings, though George can make them for any bearing size you need. The frame has enough clearance to easily fit a 26x 3 inch downhill tire and is tall enough to fit 29er size tires. George added Magura style brake bosses for me and a 25.4mm ID seat tube.

The wheel consist of a 36 hole hub, Alex DX-32 hoop, Wheelsmith 14 gauge spokes and DT nipples. For rubber,I'm running either a Panaracer Megablaster 26x2.5, WTB Motoraptor 2.4, or a 26x3 Nokian Gazzaloddi.

The brakes are some cheaper, old style Magura brakes that I bought on eBay.
