Well I decided that it was about time for an update :lol:

The Magura Thor fork has gone (back into the shed) and has been replaced by a 120mm Reba Team fork with Blackbox damping - A much better fork for the sort of riding I do.

Riser bar gone in favour of a 762mm(!) flat Sunline bar and 70mm stem.

I admit that this was a bandwagon move. Having said that I find the frame less cramped than with a longer stem and narrower (685mm) bar.

Think they are the only changes.

Bring on MM!

Quite different to see a Cotic with flats on like yours Mark but it's cool.

Think your going to need some skinny mud tyres on there for MM though!

Eek ...... These are my mud tyres :shock:

I don't think the 1.5'' Contis I have on my Caldera would be happy on these Flow rims :x

Although I mentioned bandwagon and flat bar in the same sentence ^^^ they do make sense ... well for me anyway.

This has to be one of the nicest looking bikes I've seen. Why did you swap out the middle burns though?

I thought they looked amazing

That is very nice.

I think it is a bandwagon with flat bars without people realising there is an actual difference (not you of course).

Im not sure why risers are stock and seen as such? Straight bars should be stock and a riser added for cockpit change?

As above, it does look fast. Really fast.
How do you find the mucky nutz thing?
