Right well I'm a total GT head and have been looking into buying a Lobo frame to build up to go with my STS-1 and Zaskar, the thing is I'd like to find out all the positives and negavies with them (if them is any negs!) Can I get your opinions on this please folks. Cheers Rob 8) 8)

Absolutely love mine. It rides wonderfully, eats up just about anything in its way. I've only got 2 gripes with it first is the trouble Ive had trying to get that AC chain guide. Those things are damn near impossible to get and really make the bike. My second issue is a bit more serious but may be easily remedied. When I take a larger drop and sink the shock more than half of the stroke my rear tire rubs the coil and produces a terrible noise. I think that a heavier spring would fix this but I haven't gotten around to swapping the stock one out yet. I say go for it if you can find one, they're fantastic bikes and get tons of attention on and off the trails.
