Love it Mrlee! Cant wait to give my 92 Avalanche a thrash!

Would love to hear the differences in set up on the 3D forks.

Anyone know what the rear drop out adjuster is for? All I can seem to do with it is make the axle wonky :lol:

According to the Mbuk review the drop out adjuster is to align the rear wheel correctly which unless Gt built misaligned frames seems fairly pointless :?

It's in case there is a temperature differential between the drive and non-drive stays :wink:

Update time, managed to get the front campy canti's working, im just re-painting the flipflop stem and then im going to add the blue chill pills and re cable the brakes for winter, also I have been painting the elite bottle cage to match the tequila sunrise paint.

Firstly I masked up the bits that I didn't want paint on and sprayed it white, then added the fluro red and then the fluro yellow once that had dried it was back to the skewwer effect,

not even a colour shot of the most striking bike in the test
