Here we go, just finished building it.

Needs a couple of links out of the chain, and there's a few niggles, brakes need bleeding, shock makes a bit of a clunk etc, just small things... Other than that, looking pretty nice I reckon!

Bars are how I like them, 750mm (i'm a big guy, hence the big frame).

And it's called an organised mess (and not having enough space to store all my crap) :lol:

Does look like good fun, any plans for a matching wheelset?

I suppose if your big then they serve a purpose.

I'd like a matching wheelset (i have a rear to match the front but the wrong width) but I can't afford it. Might buy another rear to match over the summer if i earn enough.

TBH, 750mm isn't that wide, as far as downhill bars go.

That would be my Slayer. Both bikes live in my bedroom, as we don't have a garage or anything :(
