Hahah. Its not "that" good fella!

1) For a start it weighs an absolute ton. The bar is almost solid (John saw this too). Think its made of clay.

2) It has a U-brake. been reading about other options - one post mentioned Maguras...could be interesting?

3) Its made of plastic (well composite/clay/hard material you spend ages trying to scrub off pans)

4) It has internal cable routing which is gunna be a nightmare to sort

5) It has a missing stop on the rear for the rear mech. Im sure I can eitehr ignore this stop or somehow bodge something (zip tie)

That is a beaut, :shock:

Gotta say I'm lovin it, bit of a U-brake fan myself so that wouldnt bother me, in fact I would get a pair of P2 forks, send em off for new mounts and stick another up front :lol: , but jez seriously, if you get dissolutioned with the whole trimble thang (and you do sound that way already :!: ) give us a nod and I'll take it off your hands :mrgreen:

Spawny git :P
