Uber lightweight 17" magnessium frame, together with seatpost clamp & gear hanger weighs just 1400gms.
Some chainsuck & paint chip on seat tube where my battery pack banged against it, otherwise good condition, takes a 73mm bottom bracket - all geometry can be found here http://www.mgbiker.20m.com/mtb.htm

Sod it gonna keep it & build an uber weight weenie to ride until it breaks :lol:

Just a warning though - use a proper 31.0 post or shim, otherwise it will crack! :shock:

Really good to see another one still going strong :D

I'll second that - I actually used a 30.9mm I beam seat post on this one, but have since used that seatpost on another bike.

I also now have a 19" disc brake version, although that is a weighty 1.6kg :D Will post up some pics once I've finished the rebuild.

Hope not - this fat lad just built one! Feels amazing, the mag just soaks up all the sharp edges, a bit like you're floating :? :D

Think it might be my Mayhem bike...

It's perfect for the job! Let us know the plans once you have them - mine's all done bar replacing the bent :roll: forks now (sorted a pair, just need collecting) 8)
