I let my Clockwork (further up the page) go for the same reason, just too small, so can see your point. Half the fun is the build anyway. :wink:

Obviously not one for the pure at heart, but I think my 25 quid re-paint looks OK and it all works really rather well. Wouldn't have ridden it in the visually tatty and mechanically sad state it was in when I got it 2 weeks ago and now it's quite a nice ride!

I like the paint job- not sure I'm a fan of the tires :?

"...not sure I'm a fan of the tires"

Nor me really! Didn't have many other in the size to hand - and thought that just for a maiden ride the citrus (oranges and lemons!) theme quite amusing!

Like all half-decent bikes should, it now has 2 sets of wheels/tyres (I can't be bothered swopping the boots at 6 a.m. when I decide where I'm going!) and is wearing Double Fighters for tarmac and dry (for the moment!) tracks. Also should allow enough room for 'grds once weather changes!

All it needs is new gear wires - still trying to figure out HOW (combi XTR 8 speed) to get at 'em!!

Now with 27 speed, semi-slicks, rack and 'grds. Really quite useable.
