I stripped this down to sell as I hardly used it, but no-one wanted to buy it so built it up again as a MTB not a commuter this time, much better :D . The new Crank bros headset I bought has anodised orange top bearing sheild so bought some matching anodised orange chainring bolts; Can't quite make my mind up whther I like the colour or whether to get the caustic soda out.

Spec as before except Syncros 130mm Cattlehead, Syncros seatpost, Crank Bros Iodine SL headset, No name budget knobbly tyres. No cassette / pedals yet as got used for another build.

Have to admit I'm not a great fan of Pace forks, but in this case they are the perfect match...8)

Love that, parts are a perfect blend, the look with the rigid carbon fork on though suits best.

Personally I prefer the bike with no decals on, I think it looks more stealthy.

That's an Honours Graduate from Foxford University 8)

Hotter than Farah Fawcett Fox in a sauna :D

(I remember the frame being up for sale and trying to sell a kidney on 'bay to fund it :lol: )

Lovely bike, but I also vote for decals.

That looks good, I never knew Muddy Fox did a Ti frame.
Something learned today atlast.

Really, really nice looking bike, very stealthy... 8)

No need for decals either, let the Ti frame remain uncluttered.

Better tyres, perhaps, to compliment the rest of the kit though?

:D
