This is my newly built up 456 Summer season with Rock Shox Recon 130mm travel.

I built this bike up as I'm rather portly(fat) and did not have full faith in aluminium Rockhopper frame after numerous broken spokes in the rear wheel and a stiff uncomfortable ride.

Most of the parts come off my Specialized Rockhopper.

After my first couple of outings I can say I am please with the results, the bike seems to have a nice supple rear end and so far no broken rear spokes!!!! Result
