bought this as a frame/fork off ebay a couple of weeks ago for a good price :D :D

Image

threw a set of wheels on it to get it started and a set of dx brakes/seat/bars & stem/air shock and a silver h20 . had a couple of hours today to spare so decided to get it built up fully..........

changed the forks for a set of marzocchi super t's , rear shock had to come back off as i don't have a pump for it :lol: deore shifters , xt pedal arms , lx mechs , and it goes really well......

it's still really light too :? :D :D

I thought you could bolt straight onto the frame. I know I did when I had a Rift Zone. Only good for running 165's though :(

Looks in great condition, if it wasnt for it being the other end of the country from me, I would of had that myself.

Congrats on a bargain!

The 2 m10 holes are to attach a plate to, which then you would attach the caliper plate. Alledgedly you can only get CAD drawings which show an IS type fitting.
I've already pm'ed somebody on here to try and get hold of the drawings to give to BETD so they can machine one for me. Ive got a post mount rear caliper and wanted to use that, if not I'll have to swap it for an IS or buy another caliper.

People moan that these frames break easily, poppycock! I've had my b-17 baby for a good while now and mine hasn't broke (yet!).
