Well this is coming together quicker than i thought :D
And due to the ever helpful RB massive it hasn't hit my pocket as hard as i was expecting it too :D
Most of the bits are here, forks are on the way.
Need to make a decision on a shifter, oh and fabricate about 20 bushes before assembly :lol:

Thanks to all of you who have helped get it this far, you know who you are :wink:

I'll post some pics of some of the parts when i remember to pick up some new batteries for the camera :roll:

The Romic is 200mm e-e which i'm led to believe is the correct length.
But my god its heavier than the sun :shock:
I've got a Rockshox Delux SL item that is 175mm e-e aswell.

i'll have to dry build it when the rather lovely forks arrive and see how it looks :D

Need to re-lace the front wheel aswell :roll:
Why oh why would you take a lovely Hope bulb hub and an equally nice Mavic EX729 rim and lace the 2 together with black non stainless spokes :x :x :x

By no means even remotely finished.
But i had to throw some bits at it to give me an idea how she's going to look when she's finished :D
Apologies for the appaulling pics :roll:
And yes i know the shock is in upside down :lol:

PS. Mahooosive thanks top Ramstien-dh(Jay) for sorting me out with most of the bits. He really went beyond the call of duty to help me out :wink:
Thanks Jay :D
