In order to restore some dignity to this forum, I enclose my nearly completed overburys for your review. I have built it up with bits and bobs acquired and some I have had from new, (those XC Pro Bear Traps have got a lot of scars to answer for).
This really it is a bike which I am going to ride, not some showroom masterpiece and I have gone for reliability and durability and used components I know wont let me down on the fells here in Cumbria.
There is a few things to finish on it but it has not stopped me from having a blast around the woods at the back of the house.
