I know its not an MTB and its very new but I thought i'd show you all anyway. Bought as mint F&F and built up with appropriate strong parts, whilst also trying to keep the weight reasonable. I'm waiting for a crown so that i can fit some carbon forks, although I might not fit them. Also waiting on Red ano Odessey Sharkbite pro pedals for the finishing touch.
Be gentle :wink:

Honestly? Ditch the horrible downtube decal and get Gil to make you some 1980s style replacements. The only fork that belongs in an SE is Landing Gear. Otherwise I like it very much, looks like a lot of fun.

All stickers are original and as such will be staying put. I'm going to think long and hard about fork choice, the carbon ones I have are really nice, and light. But as you say the Landing Gear ones are RIGHT :wink:
I'm going to get some machining done on the stem as it weighs a ton, apart from that just the pedals to fit and shes done. If it ever stops raining I might get a chance to use her :D

Get an S&M Challenger or Race XLT stem on it.

Very nice

Always run chain tensioners on BMX which helps with wheel movement probs..might be worth putting one on there.

Profile bits inc. stem would look sweet on that :D

Ah, I see them now....very tidy

All you need now is a nice racetrack or set of trails....may have to wait a bit though for some dry weather!

That is a cool bike you have. My new toy is really a toy, I have the different kind of toys in my room. It is children toys but I still want it. This makes me happy and I want to add more.
