Good work. The 'Off Road Competition' decal looks a little too large though.


Oh I dunno...

...compared to the first pic at the top of the page the dimensions look pretty much the same?

Thanks.

I took the sizing from what was left of the original cap height so it should be pretty accurate. Might be a little bit bigger - I'll have to check the brochure PDF to compare.

I am pretty anal about these things....like most of us are no doubt....and being a graphic designer I hope it's very close.

black and silver lx would complement this


I think it would too but I'm going for spec build, so it will be full DX with Ritchey bits and Magura Hydrostops - hopefully :wink:

A very good job G. I like the finish of the frame very much subtle and sexy.

Good work with the headset too. Its going to look cool, especially given the O/E spec.

Top job.... 8)

Looking forward to this build, I would really like one of these myself.


Likewise. I always wanted an e-stay Saracen BITD, of course I ended up with something tragically different :lol:.

Looking forward to seeing it built up.

Thanks mate. Appreciate the comments.

I was looking forward to getting on and doing a couple of small bits on it tonight but work has got in the way :x

Wheels are being built Thursday but Hopefully I'll be able to do something tomorrow.

Hi Dave,

I can do that for you. I'll do it over the weekend if that's ok.
