That looks truly stunning.

I have decided to put on hold getting mine back up and running. It's going to cost me around 300 quid to get it all working properly, plus the fox shock i bought didn't fit. My brother has made me a spring retaining disc out of stainless steel which hopefully will be up to the job.

In the meantime I have bought a mate's Scott G-Zero for 200 quid which has Hope disc brakes.

The FSR will now be a project as and when I get the money and most crucially, the time. In the meantime I have the scott to ride and I may even use that as a donor for wheels and brakes to the FSR.
