Very nice Jez, finished at last! Well worth the wait.
One question, the cable routing to the U brake arms looks a bit odd, on my BMX I have the cable running straight from the hanger to the arm on the same side where you have it wrapping around. Are you trying to saw your seattube in half?

Thats how Trimbles were set up - I've had two now and when both arrived they had the same set up as shown in the pic.


I could try it as you say and see if it makes a difference.

There is some very thick plastic sheath that protects the frame where the cables are - no rubbing as such...

Aha I was building that last night. That will be ready for MM too hopefully.

Its looking pretty sweet now - baring in mind it was a "quick planned build" using the red zmaxs, rasta stuff, Bullsye and Syncros stuff.


...need a brake noodle thing to thread the front brake cable into the hanger.
