Outstanding: all your own work?

We need a bit of story to go with this: how did you go about it?

For once it has too many triangles :lol:

Sweet bike. I often wish how much quicker mountain bikes would have advanced if we didn't have to suffer the whole '71 degree head angle, 130+mm stem, 21" flat bar' phase. This bike looks like it might actually be FUN to ride down hill! Foot out / flat out!

should handle well down hill, its based on the clunker geo. oddly its wheel base and angle are not that dissimilar to my Dh/Am bike!

When its built i will Let you knows how it runs.
