Now you have gone and done it perry, there is one thing that can unite and galvanize the warring clans and that is a cheeky Sassenach, just watch yourself in those deep dark woods :twisted:


BTW there is a very good chance we will be behind you for pretty much most of the race :lol:

Sneaky pics of the SS, will almost certainly change the cockpit, too high and flat :? feel like I want to stand on the pedals all the time. Any ideas? Thinking something a bit longer and as said before with the sweepy bars. Need to tidy that magura hose too.

wow nice bike 8)

Love the cranks wheels hubs tires hanger frame and brakes- looks great.

Longer flat stem stem or layback post maybe?

Only thing I'm not sure of is the forks- might be better another colour? Red?

Any decals or are you going nude?

That would be a fab polished alloy bike if it wasn't a fat tubed GT alloy bike :?

Stick with the layout for now until you've ridden Drumlanrig, then tweak to suite yourself.

Hardrock is ready to go but rider is a bit fooked so I'll make sure my walking boots are ready to :roll:

Think I'll try a stem first, quite cheap and easy ( :wink: ) to bugger about with. As for aesthtics I'll leave as is, not sure I'm 100% smitten by it. I'll use it for a while try to get the position dialled in and decide what to do. I would probably rather something steel and a bit more modern to take the 100mm fork. Also theres a whopper of a dent right where the GT decal would go :roll: .
