This frame's (ex-rojo) been gathering dust in me cellar whilst I waited for disc mounts for the fork :D

Got 'em and built it yesterday - went out today...............1995 Kona Sex One, Pace RC36 fork with 99p ebay disc caliper, LX, and a Lidl saddle :D ..........

Reasonably light and much to my surprise it doesn't bounce around all over the place. Rear shock is set quite firm, as I prefer, but still absorbs plenty of impact. Quite like it really, although undecided whether to reinstall impact HS and velocity stem :P

Dog didn't want to get into car and in the melee I forgot to pack camera, hence crappy phone pics :roll:

Today I got some free goodies from CRC, gloves and glasses.

Yesterday I had a near perfect day on a 40 mile circuit of Beinn a Ghlo from Blair Atholl with 5750 feet of climbing. Sunshine, proper hills and great riding; all was well with the world. Then today I went back to work :(
