Great job as usual Martin 8)

Im thinking a extra splash of yellow to go with the decals might work well. Maybe some hutchinson tyres with the yellow outer edges? Or, old crossmax wheels with the yellow hubs maybe?

Really nice that, what did you use on the tyres ??


Thanks :)

I used Autoglym Bumper Care, a rubber/plastic treatment stuff :)

or the Autoglym bumper care, less "gooey", apply it with small cubes/ cut up squares of cheap car washing sponges :wink:

Ernie :wink:

How does it feel with that much travel at the front?


I believe iirc :? that I set them to 80mm travel so a-c is about 445mm. It handles quite nicely :)


Sounds perfect. Looks like a lot of fun to ride... Jealous...

Thanks for all the positive comments :D

I may agree with you Mike on the wheels, but I don't like the sound of the tyres ;) :lol:

Maybe yellow decals on the forks :? or a different fork ;) ............
