Ain't you got one? Or sold it? And did it already have a BB?

All depends on your cranks, tis a 68mm shell tho (853 frame). I'm just modernising mine and have just fitted an external bb crankset.

Still got mine, got a triple-clamp fork for it coming via Santa :)

It didn't come with a BB fitted but I have a UN92 to go in it; Raceface crankset on quite a long axle as it's quite wide at the lower pivot?

Interesting, I bought a UN55 with 118mm spindle - would that be long enough? Or would I need longer? I'm using Syncros forged cranks with Sun Ringle rings - compact-ish.
These very ones which i bought :

So far the build is thus;

Raleigh RSP Full suspension Reynolds 853 frame.
The frame is the yellow one with blue rear triangle. But I'm going with mostly black components with flashes of red and white.

Rock Shox Monarch RT3 rear shock (black) (not fitted yet - need custom made bushes)

Magura Phaon front fork (black)
FSA Orbit MX headset (black)
Raceface Prodigy forged Stem (black)
X-Lite G-Force bars (black)
X-lite Kevlar saddle (black)
Syncros forged crank arms, sun ringle rings. (black and silver)
Shimano UN55 BB
Mavic 231 rims
XTR M900 hubs
Sram chain
Sachs Power grip Wavey shifters (Neos)(Black and Red)
Sachs Centera front and rear Derailleur's. (black and red)
8 speed cassette.

I'm going to fit Power grip Extreme shifters and a Sachs Quarz or Plasma rear mech - looking to source these. Anyone??

And looking to get myself a Black X-Lite seatpost and seat post clamp (or a Raceface one). Anyone??

Some Skewers - either Syncros or X-Lite - in black please. I might go for some Sachs ones if I can find them.

Tyre's - Michelin of course! Wild grip'r's or Wild'race'r's.

And finally Brakes - going to be Avid SD 7 brakes and levers in black.
