Looking forward to getting it built up now. Gonna take a little while though, hit a stumbling block already..... Whilst the powder coaters have masked off the bottom bracket they've only masked 99% of the threads, the first thread or so has a bit of powder in it and the BB won't bite. The rest of the threads are clear though.

Gonna take it in to my LBS and get them to face the BB, and chase the thread, hopefully that'll sort it!

It's going to be a 4x bike which will be used on the local 4X track and Bmx tracks etc

It will also be my commuter.... I currently use a 14" specialised hardrock for these duties, but the spec has out grown the frame. Plus I need something a bit bigger for commute. This 16" Ms Isle hopefully fits the bill.
