Newly acquired Tomac M.O.A.H. frame. Manitou Swinger 4 way shock. 8.5" of bounce. Marzocchi 888 RC's, 200mm travel.
I picked the frame up due to to some over-indulgent e-bay finger tapping. Then when I got the frame I decided that I MUST HAVE different forks to the ones I had. You all know where I'm coming from.
So, the frame arrived with it's massive shock and tree like tubes. I was in two minds whether or not to keep it but I did. I'm glad I did too :twisted:
About a week later the forks arrived, Marzocchi 888 RC's with integrated stem.
All the other kit was transfered from my Marin B17 apart from the (new) 68mm UN72 BB as the Tomes takes a 73mm :(
It rides nicely but I've yet to get up to even reasonable speed on it as I haven't ridden properly for a long time (work, family, work etc).
The seatpost is going to be swapped out for my raceface Atlas when I get the shim to get another inch ride height. Ideally it could do with a dropper but at the moment I'll use a q.r.
I've got to take it to BPW as my old trails are overgrown and I got attacked more than once when out riding a few days ago by ninja brambles :lol:
Oh well, that's it basically.
