Thanks!
D'you know what? I really don't know! Its a 27.0, 350 long but it bears no logo. I bought it from Danaroby00 on here so maybe he knows?
All I know is that I spent 3 months trying to find one for under £40 and all I came across other than this one was a damaged campag on eBay. Ritchey do one new for around £70 if you search google.

Right! That's it! After 4 months of maxing out both my overdraft and my phones data allowance I'm finished shopping at last! :D
Now I'm just waiting on postie.
Seat I'll be borrowing from another bike until I (my bum) can make a final decision!
Hopefully the next update will be next weekend with pics of it on my local trails!

Actually scratch that!
Just ordered a seat bundle offer from wiggle that was too good to pass up. Charge spoon, charge lock-ons and a bag for 25notes!
Lovely 8)

Obligatory 'wheel it out into the sun for a snap' shot.

I have to put right a couple of my own cockups and swap some of the junk pile parts for the new ones when they show up but other wise this will definately be finished by the weekend :)

For some reason my email notification don't work for this thread!

It's going to be close indeed but I think you're gonna beat me to it by a few days.

Looking good though mate, that yellow is stunning - where abouts do you ride?

These days, it's only to work and back or the pub and back with the mrs and the (usually asleep) daughter in the trailer :roll:
Used to love the poldice valley and the flat lode trail is good for shaking down a new build, but as the name suggests its not exactly challenging :lol:
A friend tells me that there's some new trails being built in cardinham woods and he's trying to get me to take this up there when it's done for a play.
Any good riding round your way? I know the scenery is better than round here! I have another friend in ludgvan who seems to find a new route every weekend!

Fiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiished!!! :o
Although the steerer will need a trim after a testride, I'm done! Just mounted the chain and trimmed the cables.
I don't have photos sadly and I don't have the time or the weather for a ride (young daughtersitting, home alone) but I may take a temporary snap later when the mrs gets home just so I can record 'the moment' and I'll edit the post with proper photos at a later date.

So stoked with how it's turned out :)

Ok so here's the snaps taken on my phone just now, I'll leave these up until I get down better ones with my camera.

Feedback welcomed. There's a couple of bits I'm not 100% sure about, but I won't tell you what they are ;)
