Are you still after a 30.4 seatpost? I've got a black Identiti one which is as new, you can have for the price of postage (maybe £3 ish)? :)

aye cheers 8) its painted
not seen another in this colour allthough it doesnt have the gussets like the gold and black and black and silver frames so i prsume its older

ive seen 3 different sets of linkage plates going around now, some have 4 holes :?

quick update anyhow
got the black front wheel on now (ordered the blue matching one from markanthony but after promises it never came. got refund, avoid!!!)
put half the black rear end on (wouldve done all of it but on of the chainstays is threaded (has bolt and nut instead), and i havent removed it from the other frame yet)
refilled the forks with new oil but still cant get lockout to work properly (these were new!! had about 3 rides on them so far :shock: ah well they go up and down fine!)
front skewer s now the blue matching hope one 8)
thats it for now. took it for my commute the other day, veeeerry plush. just eats stuff up, very happy!! the spv on the shock works well

need to get a different mount or rotor or something fro front brake as the pads only cover about half the surface it should :?
gears arent too bad but might change them as my commute is perfect so thats what theyre compared too
getting there!

Cheers guys 8)

Yes, does need decals i reckon too.
It is a bit plain (and as such i believe was accused of being a halfords bike the other day :evil: )

Not tested the 24's on trails yet but it feels really good on them on the street.

Feels like my riding is slowly improving with it, but still no where near the level of this bike! :lol:
Great fun though
