What parts have you been getting for the ms isle?
Saddle/seatpost looks better, everybody loves a thomson!
The frames were only warrantied upto 150mm.
I have the original decals (pulled from mine) if you wanted me to scan them in for you? (Still got to get the swingarm one off). Theyre not perfect but a good photoshop wiz will sort that.
The Msisle so far has the following waiting for it (easter break when the weather is better im thinking):
*11 - 25 Road cassette
*KMC gold chain
*Raceface 38T chainring
*SLX rear mech
*Raceface seat post
Plenty more to buy though.... it gets used daily so needs some money spent on it ready for the next 2 years or so.
As for the patriot, Yeah i realise they were only warranted for 150mm of travel but the waranty is long gone out the window, and the headtube isnt going anywhere with that box section down tube lets be fair.... lol It handles brilliantly with the boxxers on too.
The decals are on order from orange mate, but thank you for the offer.
May look at getting a direct mount stem on there in the near future, see how I like it.
