Great to see you finally got hold of the Funk you've been after Chris.
That one does look very nice especially with the Manitous.

Tough choice between M900 and M732/5.
But you've got LX on your Stumpy, DX on your Ultimate and XT on your Blizzard. By that rationale I reckon XTR would be a logical next step.

Nice! A DeKerf, then a Blizzard, now a FUNK. We have very similar tastes in bikes. But blimey how fast you build up your projects. Makes my schedule look piss poor in comparison! :lol: Puts me to shame. :oops:

Can I ask where the cracks on the 1990 are? I'm a tad nervous about mine, as I have yet to strip off the rattle can spray on it to get a good look.


Our tastes our simple , "we have to have the best" :lol: I only need a few more bits then I can get cracking on with the build and try to decide which groupset looks best,which stem & bars to go for , which tyres to use , which wheels . :?

The crack on the first Funk frame i bought is on the chainstay weld where its welded to the seat tube. I'll pm you some pic's fella.

No, I'll PM him and see if I can get him to start one. He has the bike listed in his signature, but no build thread.
