It's looking good, I'm glad this frame is being used.

I'm also jealous at how quickly you've built it up, my Scapin is likely to be hung on the garage wall for a few months/years yet.

Not feeling well today and so a bit bored at home. Have done all my paperwork, so time for a quick scapin update.

This has been my main winter offroad bike - and still has yesterday's mud on it.

It now has a Middleburn uno chainset, USE Atom bars, ESI grips and a Pashley TV series fork (touch harsh). I also built some Stans 355 rims onto old Hugi hubs so now running tubeless. I was never a fan of the SLX chainset and the Pace forks didn't look right on the skinny frame.

Looks a lot better now, very nice looking frame indeed, what does the whole bike weigh then?

Agree, looks sorted and quick! Have you weighed it?

On my bouncy luggage scale it's around 22lbs.

Could do with a slightly more forgiving fork, but Harry Burgundy won't split his Vicious frameset...
