Long overdue bump..

I've got some boxxer decals on and a BS Stinger chainguide. However I've been thinking about selling the boxxers for some Fox 40's or MZ Shivers..

I've re-adjusted the chainguide to loosen it up a little, it kind of needs a top runner too as the chain sometimes drops on bumps..

A short cage Saint rear mech could be good too as the DX item isn't really liking the abuse.

I also want a Thomson layback as the ride is short. Plus a new Bontrager Eart tyre

Looking good, and so natural with the longer double crowns, I never used more than 150mm travel forks.

Interestingly you have landed on the same rims I started with in this frame, and I had a Thomson layback too. Link to a picture of the same frame in an earlier guise. http://i4.pinkbike.com/photo/1453/pbpic1453188.jpg

Enjoy!!

Thanks mate I think it rides well. Stem is short for my.ideal steering feel but I'm desperate for a payback post as it feels tiny to ride.

Wheels came from Mark (barneyballbags) for a steal.

This is riding okay still, but the RD does really not like my gearing setup so it's jumping occasionally.

PS. Watch this space. I've got plans. :twisted:

(Also been offered some 888 and Shivers as new forks for this.. keep these or swap?)
