Pics of my DOGS BOLX. althoughthis is a 2009 build, it is classic old school using shortish 80mm forks. It was designed to be a xc racer like those from the early 90s when I was a kid. It is my daily ride. I also have the yeti ultimate pictured elsewhere on the forum

Wow, that's an amazing bike...pretty much what I'd be spending my money on if I was to buy another modern XC bike :D

Thanks for your comments everyone.

I can't remember tyre size. I think they may be 2.35".

I was going to get the frame in the classic black and White but then I saw this colour. It is actually a silver base with a translucent blue lacquer that let's the silver shine through. It looks fantastic in the light.

Don't mind me asking but how much did it set you back?

I've collected all the receipts but not totalled it up. I would estimate probably just over 3k as it currently stands but I'm planning some changes.

I'm tempted to re build the wheels with DT Swiss carbon rims and change the seat to a carbon railed selle italia that I have lying around.

Also tempted by carbon disc rotors but maybe I'm being silly now

How much was the frame alone?

Leave the plastic alone, fine as it is :D
