Rough and ready build this..........bought the frame on a whim from STW for £55 on Wednesday :-)
Frame arrived Friday.
Built up Yesterday (mostly bits from my unused full-sus + a new block and chain)
Ridden in anger round a 25 mile loop over East Hill and Woodbury Common today.

Lovely is all I can say! Quite a long frame, feels really planted and enjoys the downs.

I know, and it rides gurt lush too ;-)

As it was a cheapie build with stuff I already had I bought a Deore HG50 9spd cassette for £15 and a Clarks 9spd anti-rust chain for £10 from CRC. Amazed how well they shift for relatively cheap kit. Not going back to twice the price SRAM stuff in future!

Here's another couple of pics:

At my favourite sign-post.

Just finished building it up.

I think the full-suss frame is going to be gathering dust for the foreseeable now :lol:
