Yes it was me :D

I snapped up Rod's U brake Orbit :D :D

Just a couple of pictures today some of the immense care taken in packaging the frame for transport and then a couple of the frame itself.

Build will be pretty standard fare, XT, Deore, LX with a small smattering of PURPLE thrown in :facepalm: :lol:

Will take some component pictures tomorrow, I need another headset as the one I bought for it is a 26.4 and the fork seems to be a 27.0.

Cheers for looking

Mark :D :D

I like the black dx over the silver. But that's me. Really good frame and fork.
