Just been on a pootle on this after I sweated over to get it built this weekend. Real nice ride - It shifts great and even the brakes work (for a change). The back end is nice and stiff and even though the component choice is slightly 'limp wristed' it works well.

Xc pro thumbshifter (faint ratcheting indexing) and Pauls front mech works like a dream - better than Shimano I will add!

I need to get the Shimano Bb out so thats a trip to the bike shop as its throughly locked in. Needs a wider BB for the chainset thats on there.

Anyway - pics.

it nice.

I though the bit where the rear brake hanger gies was where you put a qr/bolt through to tighten on the tube though... ie no need for a seatclamp?
