Chain is on and gearing sorted (ish). It's still chucking it down, flash flood warnings issued, etc. Really need to take it for a quick spin to see if it's changing OK :( Hope it brightens up over the weekend.

Here's a few more pics for those interested

I see a stiff link mate ;)

I really think a gold KMC chain would look the part on your very cool bike.

Hi Gadro,

Where did you get the pedals from?

Are they new?

Do you have the original AMP rear shock?

Thanks, Michael

I'm not so much into full suspension bikes but i'm a fan of your color composition. It simply looks right. Well done.
..and it also matches the golden thingies in your wall :D

Thanks

Yep it's my 'Den' and it's fully wired for sound. I have entered it in BOTM, will get slaughtered by some of the other rides, but here's the pics I put in

Took it for a little ride yesterday evening, feels nice but gearing still needs a little tweaking
