Great bike. Great work on a well used frame that could tell a few stories... Now she's like new again! Fantastic.

Bucks are in no way not a top of the line bike... The quality of materials, design and manufacture are equal to the Yo Eddy, though Bucks ride a bit softer which I actually like! In fact a Buck is a lot like a Titanium Fat, just heavier and not as quick. But still awesome.

And nowt wrong with Pace on a Fat, though being a 94 you can run something better and more travel than an RC35... RC36 set at 70mm ride sublimely ;)


Cheers mate, I love the monostay frame design and it's my nod to the Ti until I can afford/warrant getting one :D

In terms of the fork, I've always liked the RC35 (hence why I have one!) and will see how it rides on that before deciding whether to keep it on there or not. I also have an F7 fork which I was thinking about getting sprayed up the same colour as the frame if I wanted to swap over to a rigid build at some stage.

Once I get a headset (King surely?) I can really get cracking and will post some more pics soon.

Sorted the Syncros post, decals courtesy of Gil....

Seat clamp is off my P7 but isn't quite right. Getting the headset fitted by the LBS this weekend so will start looking more bike like as the weeks go on!

Thanks :)

Yeah I hope it won't be an overload of silver but I'll have black forks and with the tyres etc there should be enough to break it up.

Will get some more photos up soon!

It will look classy. Dont worry. I recently also entered the FAT club, but my build goes very slow. Looking forward to to see yours finished!

It looks really sleek with that blue and i don't think their will be to much silver but if it does seem to much then you could always fit a blue riser bar ..

Been getting a few extra bits onto the bike, fitted the headset, forks, stem (went a bit spacer mad, need to sort out how that looks), mech etc.

Getting there! Still more to do but it's on the way. Oh, and I need some new hubs and ideally new rims but they'll do until I get paid at least!
