Thanks P20, I sometimes wonder where I'm going with this little lot.

It's always a bit of a downer when you've finished a build. OK I've got to sort those cables out (didn't look too bad to me but now it's been mentioned...) but once I've done that I'll be kicking around waiting for the next thing to come along and tantalise me.

Still think that aesthetically cable discs was the way to go though. :P

:D
:wink:

Dunno on both counts yet Chris, only finished building it late on the other day and I've been out only once since then and that was on the ss. It feels quite light when I pick it up though.

Scant reckons they're quite a 'compliant' ride (if I'm remembering his words correctly).

I'm going to be riding it in this years HoNC, so I'd better get a shake down ride in before then to find out what's what. :oops: I'll let you know.

:D

Bit of a downer? No way!

Finished? Never!

A build is only as good as the trail bombed once operational. Aren't all builds perpetual projects? Isn't the mountain bike mantra: Build, Ride, Break, Rebuild?

Am I on crazy pills people?
