Good show, rather you than me though :wink:

Had my first (brakeless) ride of the DH8 up and down my street, feels absolute bonkers :lol:

Got the drivetrain together, need some kind of chain retainer thing, not 100% happy with the crank spider (steel Azonic cranks), waiting on a set of Hope Mono 6 brakes bought off the bay of E on Monday (gave up on the others bought off here) then it's just about done i think.

After all that i may sell it :lol: , if i'm going to sell i'd be better now while it's fresh and mint, it's an awesome thing but i feel i will never use it to anywhere near it's potential, also may kill myself trying :lol:

your madder than me tho , 6pots on 24" wheels :shock: :shock: :shock: :twisted: :P :lol: :lol:
