that bike will make you become a better rider. and the fork is awesome. no brake/fork flex when you're heaving on the front brake. great riding machine. enjoy!

i was worried i would have to look at news brakes, spoke to jeff jones about hydraulic discs too, as it seemed most 3D's were using cable avidBB7/XTR levers........

i can honestly say these brakes are more powerfull than the 203mm beasts i had on my san andreas, the bite is so sharp......while out with neil yesterday, he insisted i rode up a slope and come back down to test them out.

i was quite surprised, 1 finger braking within 20 metres section at the bottom almost had me over the top. very good indeed when im still 16st.

thought id show these pictures on my bike with the optional fenders with custom mounts that jeff made.

ridgid enough to use off road too, and also means it can go into road mode if needed.

pics are from jeffs blog, but are of my bike.

Hi mbkot, thanks for the get well message. Rather than give on ever riding again I am taking time out to do all the things I can to help the situation and see if can turn things around. Hey Saltman, good meeting with you, although it was difficult selling the bike so prematurely I'm glad it went to someone as enthusiastic about it as I am, good photos too! All the best Neil.
