Hi all

first post having near as finished my 1st ever build.

It's a Muddy Fox Ranger Mega (99 or 2000) frame i salvaged from ebay.

and is kinda a tribute to my 1st ever MTB an 87 Courier (the white/ purple one) that did so so many miles with me.

it's for my lad (who's 14) as we've been apart for a while ( a very long story)

and started out as a rat look pub machine but seems to have rather a lot of deore kit attached to it thanks to the good fellows on here....

with thanks to Rojo (espec.), Baj (where's me derailleur :D ), inittowinit and IDB1 it works!!!!

Be gentle, it's just abit of fun for me and my eldest and hopefully to get him to pick up a spanner or two.

cheers
andrew

Wow andrew that is brill mate, glad you pit pic's up. The forks look good on it. Glad they are being used. You have the bug for builds now :wink:

You done a very good job mate, hope your lad likes it.
