Noooo way. Morewood is staying. Its my favourite.
I part exchanged the orange frame and in came the heckler.

Realistically the patriot was too small at 14''. This is 17''.

It rides absolutely bloody naff right now. Only slapped it together to see what it was like, with spare tyres.
Small amount of play in the pivot bearings has translated to a large amount in the frame.
Bearings should be here next week.
Need to sort the bolts in the dropout to the proper ones.

Shock should be 200x50 (or 57) but has the 190x50 as that all i have spare.
So new shock at some point.

Thinking pikes or lyrics. Coil shock.
Got d321's waiting for the hubs (which should be blue aerial ones form ramstein dh).

Paintwise im nto too sure but thinking black with blue decals. Keep it simple.

Oh and need to sort chain device as my blackspire ds1 would hit the pivot.

Has a bottle opener on the left side of frame.

Cheers.

Frame bearings are here. Sourced a shock and blue hope bb.

Hubs should be arriving soon also. Then that just leaves fork/paint i believe.
