yeah I've ridden it, the tyres were a total c*nt to fit couldn't get the beading to sit right at all. They seem a nice tyre tho. The best thing is the Clarks s2 disk brake... cost me £35 new and it performs as good as any hundred quid plus brake, over the moon with it.

This is the seat I was looking at

Well I got some hydrolic cable guides off ebay and got the hose fitted properly, next things to get done are fit new chain, buy new DMR saddle and buy a DMR STS chain tensioner when funds allow!

Was also thinking about changing the frame for a Orange ms isle or DMR sidekick or stick with the coyote? what do you folks think??
