Well its slowly started ,been gathering parts and got a nice rare seat for Christmas from a very good friend Jason :D

Its got temporary wheels at the moment as waiting for mavic/pulstars being built (Scott),tyres are staying (karma from another mate ,Ian)
And original forks on at no as waiting for an inch steerer and crown for the manitous

Working on the crank set today,cranks and bb karma from Mr pies :-)

Not sure I like the bars ,I reckon it needs ones to match seat post if anyone wants a swop :)

Blue tape on the seat post is just for photo ,I need to measure for a spacer
Shame I can't get it ready for this months botm :lol:

With the nice weather and being bored on Sunday,I decided to knock this together,awaiting grey shimano cables and some little bits of gold

Used it for work today and very pleased with the light and easy ride
And those brakes are amazing Scott,the xray shifters are going,in favour of xt pods and mavics in build process,will do better piccies once completed:-)

Got home to find some nice shiny gold bars from BoB (I.o.w) cheers mate

And it only weighs 22lb without the water bottle !

truly hideous but good on you for the build and getting out to ride it and anything that gets you away from the activator has to be a step in the right direction :wink:
