You know how it is... waiting all day for something to rock up and it doesn’t! :twisted: Red mist! So today I had to concentrate on fixing my car, then the phone call came 'there’s a box arrived for you'. F~#k the car! :shock: When I got the box I honestly thought there was nothing in it. Fortunately or unfortunately I’d still my old Ti frame at home, so I unpacked it to compare weight (its now on its way to a new home, enjoy WD Pro), and I was amazed with the difference. The Airborne was/is light but this is just amazing. It also looked small. It’s the second time I’ve had that feeling, you know the sinking one where you try and convince yourself that you can ride a midget’s bike (apologies short people, on the plus side your trainers are cheaper and look better than canoes).
Measured up its 17.5 which is perfect as that is what the Airborne was and I loved that!

So for the time being is spec for spec. Almost all XT apart from rear mech which is XTR with sexy jockey wheels. Thomson stem, X-lite XC risers, USE carbon post, brown leather Charge etc etc. The forks are brand new Fox RLT 80mm with lock out. Think you agree they suit the frame really well?
I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for a silver 90mm Thomson 0 deg rise and a silver Thomson post. Also a new BB and possibly chainset???

What do you think boys n girls?
