Only to work and back so far
Need a stronger shock spring or ideally an air shock
Forks aren't too hot, but do the job
Other than that all good :)

They don't seem to be getting full travel and they have quite a bit of scoring round the left leg, and a bit of a wobble too

I've swapped my 120mm syncros stem with Clockworkgazz's 100mm of the same
I picked it up this morning and fitted it, looking good!
Got my new hope head doctor fitted now too

ah well, i enjoyed the build, it was a nice ride but it has been sacrificed to the new project, a '04 Rocky Mountain ETSX-30
never thought i'd own a rocky mountain, so i couldnt pass the chance up

i used to sell them in '97-'99, i always wanted one, but could never stretch to it
i built an XS Speed, so rare it wasnt even in the brochure,it was a downhill specific version of the speed (i actually built 3 or 4, i think only 6 were imported)
it came to £4,500 apx
the guy liked it so much he lent it me for the weekend to take to the lakes 8)
