I decided i needed a downhill bike after watching my son and watching a Farmer Johns race at Saddleworth Moor which had nothing too hardcore and was very informal,just a load of guys and girls having a laugh and enjoying the banter.
The bike had to be a reasonable make but most importantly cheap,i really wanted a Intense M1 but couldnt find one at the right price.
I have ended up with the Gemini you see here (a right dog) the frame has now been stripped of all paint at a cost of 6 packets of Foxs biscuits by a friend in the industry.
Hopefully i will have some more pictures tomorow of the frame fresh from the powder coaters.
The frame came with a mismatch of wheels and brakes which i will rectify over time as funds permit.
Which do you think are the better of the two brakes provided
Hope M4 or Avid Code
