Really nice work Osella! I love this.

Have you moved from Guernsey buy the way?

More pics from the Summer - hoping to add more to the South West group, or a new thread about 'undiscovered' trails, or something..
But for now - just some more shots of the bike! :roll:

Looks great, I like your choices in building it up.

As I just posted on another thread, I have a 20.5" C-C frame that's the same as this - 2,110g and frame number H33126. The seller said it had been sat around as a NOS frame at Raleigh before he bought it, hence not having decals on it, though it has the same M-Trax logo on the seat tube.

Hopefully, I'll have a build thread started for it by the end of the day.

It's awesome to ride..! I have more fun on this than any other bar my modern full-sus (except on tarmac going up hills, as those tyres REALLY don't work on the road!)

I've heard/read so many varied things about those forks too, but really they are spot-on one finely-tweaked, and totally adjustable to whatever terrain. I'd highly recommend the pedals too - relatively cheap, but incredibly grippy, & solid axles (from the couple of times I hit them on rocks & roots!). Time will tell on the bearings..
I'm still on the lookout for another RSP 853 frame, 'cos there's something I can't quite describe about it that just lets you flow. I think it can do more than I can, but it feels totally in tune with the way you're riding.
