In terms of the disco and suspension forks - see attached pic.

Nuf said.

Salsas have that point welded on for the rear canti brake. Its just a point so that the cable can hang from a hanger. It may also act as a height-rite point but it definitely isnt a seatpost clamp junction. It uses the typical forward facing bolt on collar. All salsas have them.

Very nice Jez.

Shame about the porcs. Quick ride round the block means you've wiped 100 quid off their value... Other than that they look ace!

You not gonna put drop bars on it then...?

You do build a nice bike Jez.. 8)

Are you looking for the immaculate Mag21s for this build?

And as for the White Porcs, I don't think it would be a signature J2MB Build without them eh :wink:

Roon - yes mag21s would be good for this one but you can never find any clean ones.

There's some (or were) NOS one's on ebay Germany a couple of days ago. One inch steerer. Seller was after 12Euro posted which seemed very reasonable to me - said he'd take PayPal too. Have a butchers and see if they're still up there. Might have gone though I'm afraid as too busy yesterday to check.

My most iconic MTB bike for sure - beats a Tomac replica everytime! Can't wait to see it in the flesh (in the Peaks??!)...

How many jellbeans are their in the Uk or world d'you think?

Are those Ti or black spokes in the front wheel...?! Surely not!
