i had my i drive but it wasnt what i wanted although it rode superbly, so i traded that with inittowinit for this frame and a few other parts.
its a bit of a pig at the moment i think (actually it only needs minor things changing!)
parts from here there and everywhere, rides well up and down the street and is lighter than my commuter :shock:
will put up a spec list if anyone is interested and wouldnt mind some comments/discussion :wink:
the frame is a vcv which is an early dh8 (2000 i believe), has the 6,7,8 inch travel holes and spinner cargo forks 8)

thanks alot! :D
it doesnt need much, blue front wheel (i hate odd wheels/unsymetrical bikes! :lol: ), different tyres on there (got a set of specialized resolutions for now), wider post, new cassette and a shorter bb!

:lol: haha you like the spacers! maybe its because of the odd stem??
