This is looking really good now the Fox are on it. :) Still gutted that I couldn't do the build myself, so glad to see it worked out so well. :)

Will get some pictures up ones I have sourced some replacement bits for it. Looking to replace the suntour forks with some tora's & upgrade the wheels and drivetrain. I have just started soucing these parts so hopefully over the next few weeks / months I will have some pictures of this build.

fox forks make it look 100 times bette, much better fit colour wise. Probably shaved a chunk of weight as well.

nice bike, got it looking sweet.

thanks for the positive comments!

The fox's could do with a service, so i will get them done soon!

Took it out for an 18 mile xc route on sunday before work, feels lighter again now!
