I always use Photobucket for all my pics, have a pro account now. Best site I reckon as provide easy to find links to display photos on forums like this one.

Mate great job, you had your work cut out for you, and now look at it, you must be very proud, and for me what retro is all about..., i just wish it was in my size as its one on my own wish list.... 8)

To be fair, if i didnt see it in bike of the month i would have missed it, my apologise i must have been asleep..... :oops:

Get on mate, top job and best of luck for BOTM...... 8)

thanks for the positive comments, gladly this bike is just the right size for me, it would be nice to win botm. but i think there is too much "hype" on other bikes, if people voting see the work that goes in to some builds, like mine, i think the votes would go differently, but to be honest, winning botm is not the reason i built this bike, i built it to have the bike of my dreams, the dolomite attitude is next.

i agree with what your saying,its one thing to get a frame throw a load of nos parts at it build it up and say look what i did! when all you have done is throw a lot of money at it,if you have the money then well done but its another to totally strip,remove oxiadition,polish/re paint in some cases then re decal getting every last one just as it should.
then move on to forks/cranks and so one.

really good build indepth and good photos too boot!

i take my hat off to you if its worth doing do it right. :D

here is the proof it is a rider.
very happy. :D
although the pedals have been replaced with spd's
the xc pro pedals & clips were just too fiddly.
