Just curious, how does it ride?Do you notice much difference compared to an MT3 / Diablo frame?

I've never ridden an MT3 but I have an M Trax Elite 350 made with Reynolds Optima tubing and the MT4 is quite different.
It's more forgiving and not as stiff - but has a lot of feel and I think over rough ground it has more control feel and comfort than Aluminium hard tails I've ridden.
The Mtrax has front suspension though.

I love riding this - I've just bought some short stubby red USE bar ends and will be fitting those.

Couple of new Pictures.

Replaced the Peaty Lock On grips with a combination of Onza Porcipne and ATI Bar End Gloves - because I fit some USE Bar Ends.

Just been staring at this for ages now :xmas-cool: Another of your bikes I would gladly own :xmas-big-grin:
I don't think there is much I would change either, apart from those bar ends to black or silver. Then I could have the red ones to go with the bar I've just bought :xmas-wink: arrived today by the way, thank you.

. Man thanks for the comments
It took me over 3 years to get it how it is. I wanted Ti bars but the guy who said he'll sell me some didn't reply back again!!

Thought you had some Raleigh ti bars!? You could polish them up so they matched.
Have you ever thought about a black stem?, just thinking it would go with the front of the frame and fork legs.

Sorry I meant USE Ti bar ends rather than bars. Bars are USE alloy.
To be honest I like the stem so wouldn't change anything . Only thing I'd probably think about would be the brakes to more period correct Pauls
