hmm they would look quite nice, I've got a new set of SLX's sitting waiting though. Allegedly stupendous performance for a bargain price!

That looks lovely - have you ridden it yet?

I thought about turning my Beast of the East into a single speed, superlight bike but have decided that I'm not fit enough, so it will get gears,

Some of the most unfit people I know are single speeders :lol: Sometimes its just about getting off and having a blether when it gets to hard. Push and take in the view.

Finally finished :D

Already very happy with the feel of it, very chuckable. I came into mountain biking as an extension of BMX or a adult acceptable version and been through many bikes since. And although I have broader tastes and do different things now I think/hope this is the bike I've been after since I started. Something to muck about the jumps, drops and down bits. I'm now after suitable cojones to go with it :)
