So am I! This thread started back in Jan 12. Unfortunately, my job means I'm rarely in the right place at the right time to make this progress any faster! I can't wait for the first ride. :)

Dropped the frame off at Reality Motorworks Bristol today. It should be back sometime in the next week or two, then it's build time!

Alright, I'm working on it! Once it's back, I'll hopefully have it built up next weekend and I'll get pics up straight away.

It's 0030 and I've finally finished the build. All that remains is to get hold of the correct sticker set. I'll get some pictures up tomorrow.

As promised, I've got some pictures for you all! The only thing left to do is get the correct sticker set and apply them.

Aesthetically, I'm very happy with how it's turned out.

Ride report to follow!

Looks lovely and a cracking paint job too 8) What travel are the forks ? Front end
Looks bit high ? These suit 80mm travel to keep the front end sharp..
