Been Building this up over the last few weeks.

It's a Decade Virtue. Tange prestige.

There's a couple of bits still to come for it. 70mm stem, red USE Alien seatpost, SDG saddle, new grips, a longer chain, a smattering of red bolts and some nice brakes.

I like it :D

Got good reviews and up there along with the Duster and Genesis as a good, affordable steel hardtail.

Good to see some pics of the finished build

Chainline was way off and the computer was rattling in its mount :(

Fixed both problems, added red nipples and some Panaracer Cinder tyres.

The bike is now flawless :D
