the front brakes quite good tbh and it has nice tyres gazz :wink: (anything wider and i need to deflate the tyre or take a caliper off to get the wheel off) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

How much travel does the frame have? Looks like there are plenty of options for mounting the shock and tuning the ride.

i have no idea but the shock can pretty much go anywhere on the rear :lol: i've done a few miles on it and it's alright 8) i'm putting 2 new discs on the front just now (not that it needs it) and i'll get a 20mm+ adaptor on the rear to bring it upto a 160mm rear disc :D
