8) Like the frame. Tasty workmanship.

Also that is the best name for a mtb.

Donkis Knob was bad taste. Dogs Bolox was just rubbish. I wouldn't like to own a bike with those names.

Great looking frame, its going to be very pretty with all that nice XTR hanging off it!

The paint is amazing - it is very like the colour of a CATS WISKAS in a catalogue I have for Dave Lloyd.

Looking forward to seeing it finished :D

I Like the read of this article, it touches on the "confines" of U.K tubing supplies at the time.

I am very much looking forward to hearing how you feel this bike rides, and how much weight you will save by using a top flight component spec, as opposed to the LX spec shown in the review.

I have a feeling it will be quite some ride, especially if the choice of tyre you use, comes in at a width of 2" or less.

Wadsy, this is not the first time i have read a review, where frame builder has commented on the uphill struggle some had, in making its mark, in a market place dominated by imported frames.

I would be very interested to hear your thoughts, on this bike in comparison to an equivalent Spec/priced bike from a similar quality builder in the U.S. (perhaps Mountain Goat WTR for example).

New decals :D .....

These look will look good on the stem I reckon; from wanit.co.uk

I have the paint already. Special stuff to match the frame; silver undercoat with blue over then lacquer. Should look 8) - I hope - it'll cost enough!


Cheers

That stem should look ace with the frame. I have a very similar Tioga stem and they are very nice quality and you can pick them up at reasonable prices.
