So my wife agreed after my weight loss I could treat myself to a full suspension bike. I've been working my wotsits off doing a fair amount of overtime and saving hard so I began to piece together the puzzle..

First came the forks,
Image

Then some brakes and an xt 2x10 groupset (no pic of the groupset),
Image

Time to give the game away...
Image
Image

I fitted a complete invisiframe kit to protect it
Image

Hope headset fitted,
Image

Forks.. Perfect steerer length?
Image

Bars and stem,
Image

Brakes and shifters/cables in place along with reverb stealth,
Image
Image
Image

Rear wheel adapters arrived so after a 10hour shift at work I could get things moving again,
Image
Image
Image
Image

Final gear fettling,

heck yea what a great choice. The Bronson looks like a winner. I like your choice of parts its all really nice stuff. The Pike fork should be stiff and plush.

Thanks guys :D

Slope, I've lost 4.5stone since January, I've got a very understanding wife too lol.

So finished the build off, took some pics straight after but have since adjusted bars, levers etc. will be changing some cable routing too.

Looks great. Lots of folk complaining about the CTD shocks though so would be interested to hear your opinion on that.
