That's nice. I used to seriously lust after those BITD.

Should make for a nice build. I'll keep an eye on this thread.

Hi Chris,

nice bike there but i think that your Nuke Proof front hub wasn't designed for suspension forks. If that thing fails during a downhill serious things might happen.

Cheers,

Adam
