The forks are 440mm.I don't think it raises the front up too much,having said that I'm after a set of ti/carbon RC31's but I'm not too sure if its worth the money for a small weight advantage........ :?

First 'proper' ride today.3 hours in the sun on the South Downs :D Absolutely loved it 8) I was like a 10 year old on a BMX :roll:
Apart from some phantom gear shifts (now fixed) nothing fell off or came loose.Is it just me or does everybody else wonder if they have done all the bolts up tight enough :?

A few more pics of the finished beast.........

Really really nice.
I got close to building something very similar before my Scalpel addiction started and seeing yours finished with pretty much the same kit I had in mind - SLRs (the best looking versions) M970 XTR and Pace rigids - makes me wish I had. What does she weigh ?

Thanks for your comments :D
I'm not too sure what it weighs exactly I'd say around 22lbs in old money 8) maybe a less,it feels like its half the weight of my Explosif.......really quick!
