Clearly sir - you have never raced these - I tried and failed, took them off, found a bin and bought some Maxxis

How many world class racers used the Fat66 Tioga DH to win a race.....

Thanks to Mr Puceflange, these arrived...

Brilliant match for the frame and really solved me a problem as I was stuck on which cranks to go for... even the "L&M Downhill is in the right shade of red!

Just need some nice red chainbolts...

The RC500 is so close to being finished... just a small amount of setting up and a rear disc to source! :D

I built both wheels (with minimal specialist kit) and am well happy with the results.

Quite a quick build for me - just over a year! :D Haven't ridden it yet... but have a feeling it's going to be a Monster!!

Now need to get the Zaskar finished as another project is winging its way here as we speak!

Anyway, enough of my yacking here's the pics!
