Its not far off catalogue spec, but that will change thank god :lol: so far have ditched the alivio mech and shifters, the front caliper, stem, bars and pedals. Already came with rear disc brake rather than the v's it started out in life with.

Well another couple of changes to it have change the wheels so I can now put normal discs on the front rather than be stuck with the diatech jobbie. Have also just fitted some L & M cranks to it :D need to find some smaller rings these are a bit big (28 38 48). Sorry for terrible pic quality.

Its my first dabble with full sus so I havent really got a benchmark to pit it against. Still feels good tho.
