Well the mongrel headset was obviousley never going to work ,

So I ordered a new Fsa Pig Downhill and its arrived and fitted by one of my technicians at work :wink:

And how handy is it to have a fully equipped automotive workshop with 15+ techs in it with every tool you could think of (not bike tools though) :lol:

A Bearing press makes fitting headset cups a doddle :lol:

So just having a cuppa before getting this built up and hopefully ready for a run on my day off on thursday, maybe some action shots if Mrs P is up for a wee ride in the woods too :lol: :wink:

No idea how much it weighs , (plenty though)

The forks, bars & brake weigh more than the frame though :shock: :lol:

Its useless at climbing, so I think a change of shock is on the cards, something with lockout so I can get up

Its so so forgiving on the way down though, stuff that had the Sv's back end squirming about, it simply floats over :D

Stairs , roots, rocks , nothing is getting in this fellas way :lol:

Need to Name it though,

I feel it deserves a name.............

Something like Cleetus :lol:
