Did you go to the Saturday night dance at the gathering hall on the mound :?


I did a gig there years ago when I was working as a roadie (not the cycling kind). It was more of a battlefield than a gig.

More and likely fit you better than me TK. :lol: these modern styling with the crazy angle top tube puts the standover height and subsequent seat post length a bit beyond me :? Sits about 1"-1 1/2" below my Red-Ti[made up a name for it :D)

Aye, looks less than an ideal for a man of your stature Andy.

What are the plans? Rider, or thinking of selling it on?

Deffo selling on Aaron :? Hopefully my brother inlaw[literally :lol:] will take this for about 600 or a bit less as thats about what its cost so far.
This is typical as ive always wanted fox forks and another Orange but soon as i get one its all wrong :lol:
Its been fun all the same,the tazmon was too difficult and the rear shock was causing too many probs,happy to stick to building hardtails

The monos arrived and are in fab condition,but theyve now presented a problem in that my 5 bolt hubs are 185/165mm rotors and the I.S monos it seems need to be 180/160 :roll: Always something :(
Now i need new wheels
