Finally, I got one!

What?? You say its not a San Andreas? But the chap who sold it to me said it was?!

You're telling me, its a £19.99 ebay special frame from J.E James? What about if you squint or look in the wrong direction?

Oh, ok.

J. E James were flogging some cheap A-Pro frames off for £19.99 delivered - thought it was a great place to hang my good bits of while I wait for something.

The whole bike cost around £50 to build including the RS Revelations, the Hope Pro II and nice XT bits

Thats what car-boot sales do for you and dull cold winters evenings on ebay can achieve.

Hope you like it!

Red seatclamp on the way and some decal ideas (these were sold as Claud Butlers) plus maybe a shorter stem - that does mean spending more money though

Just remembered I have some Clarkes hydraulics to fit too!

Nice bike for a ridiculous low amount of cash

Nice build, can't believe you achieved that for £50, well done!

Are they coil Revs? Fine fork if so. Very very good fork if not.

I think they are air - they feel very nice and obviously deserve a better frame at some point
