Well to be honest the only thing I can compare this too is my Proflex Beast and Kona Hei Hei, and if all modern suspension bikes are like this I've been missing out! Its so plush, yet still the whole thing is lightweight and stiff.
Most of the parts are ebay and forum finds, and I would estimate the whole thing probably cost just over £1000 to build over two years. But I had some real bargains, so its all top end kit, in the end pretty pleased with the cost.
Hoping to get out off road on it later in the week so I'll be sending a report then.
I think thats a great build price - you must
have had some bargains
especially on the Extralite kit, that stuff is expensive.
The black with the yeti 'turquoise'? looks great
