Nice build, you have done the frame proud - glad its worked out for you. I agree that these are under rated frames, Ritchey tubes and all that!!!

Let us know how it rides, I never had the pleasure :cry:

Lookin' good there, Kermit. Picture 3 is particularly interesting....... I like the Avid disc brake on the front and V on the back, so you keep a matched pair of levers. I like your funky perspex block! And i like the happy cat in the background...........they've always got to muscle in somewhere! :lol:

Here's one of mine - she's always got to get in on the act

Thanks for all the positive comments chaps :D

Hi Lester and welcome to the site :wink: Yes it is a Ritchey logic WCS prestige sticker you spy

Neither have I had the pleasure of a full ride yet but just round the block it feels very nimble and whippy :D

Yes kittys do tend to get everywhere that one is my neighbours and he is very very very clingy :lol: The brakes haven't bedded in yet but I think when they do they will be very nicely balanced :D The funky perspex cube is actually a Ferrero Roche container :oops: :lol:

I can't believe the frame was just 40 quid, looks great :shock:
Agree with other posters, don't see enough of these, underrated by what little I know.

I think you've done a great job. What size is it out of interest? Head tube looks tiiiiiiiiny!

Cheers Superstu

I know it is unbelieveable value for such a lovely frame :D

The size according to Mongoose is 16.5" which is c-c with c-t being 18" and as you say the most tiny headtube at 3 & 3/4" just for reference the forks fitted were cut down for an 18" c-t Giant XCT with an integrated headset :shock:

So the journey was even longer and harder than I had at first thought :wink: Now though I think I am finally seeing journeys end :D :D

Will put a fully revised spec sheet up tonight but wanted to post a couple of pics for now :wink: :D

Really good build mate, very under-rated bike.
