Hey guys,
Had this build in mind for a while as I was keen to see how well the Alfine would suit my all rounder needs, so when I saw this frame going cheap it seemed like the perfect opportunity.

I tried to keep costs down where possible but inevitably I got carried away on certain components. I figure that ill most likley end up using these on a future build anyway,
Its comfy as hell, corners better than most bikes ive ever built (maybe due to lateral stiffness?) and im falling in love with the Alfine set up.
If Shimano can knock a few hundred grammes off the weight, and guarantee its off road performance...then every one who tries one will never look back.
Bliss.
