It has been a time consuming, costly and challenging project with lots of problems to solve. I am still working on lacing the HED downhill rims though!

Thanks for all the comments thus far on it, I realise this botm is likely to have a lot of love/hate action, and fully understand peoples reasons.


modern tyres

no hed wheels

no middleburn dh cranks

no mud??

I will grant that it looks a little modern compared to other entries thus far, and am starting to ponder whether the :

Hmmm, I was thinking about entering my only "DH bike" (since my RTS isn't built yet anyway). It retro, it's DH and I have yet to try it out and break it ;-)
